And onto rims....

In case you have not noticed, the bug has bitten me. I am now looking into rims for my 01 EX coupe. I really just want the look, more than weight savings, etc. I am not going to race this car, and am not going to show it. Just for my personal enjoyment.

With that said, What is the deal with these rimsw I am seeing on ebay? I mean 4 rims for 250?? What kind of quality is put into these, and will the finish last? Something like this:

Ebay item number: 7990277376

usually the rims on ebay are ADR, or R1 rims
they are good quality, they arent racing harts, or volks but they last.
i've bought rims off ebay 2x and never had a problem.

I bought my wheels and tires off of ebay. The wheels have been great, i've had them for a while. I've only had the tires for 3 weeks, they are hancooks, but they seem to be holding up to my daily commute.

if you don't care much about weight, then those rims are just fine. What color is your car?

those are pretty cheap rims, i wouldnt buy them... i bought my rims of ebay for 475 and they are 17s. dont get anything smaller than 17s in my opinon, they will look TINY. also buy some lowering springs along with them, our cars look like monster trucks with rims and no lowering springs... i suggest skunk2 or neuspeed.
