HELP!! What rims should I get?? (Think i decided.)

Ok, I think i've decided what I want, high quality but not too expensive. I love em, they're serious race style, no excessive bling.
Here is two photoshops on my car.



Frickin A I can't find a nice set of gold rims that aren't too expensive that have the right bolt pattern.
Rims i've looked at:
Advan T6 - Wrong Bolt pattern, No 4x100 in 18 inch


Advan Super Version 2 - They don't make the 4x100 in 18inch? I guess??


SPsports Gravity GullFlame -Wrong bolt patter, only 5 lug only


Volk GTU's -Too expensive


Work VS-xx - Still too expensive



Does anyone have any idea where I can find a sweet *** set of gold rims for about 400 a rim???!!?
I don't want 5 spoke designs, too common....18 inch any ideas?

Re: HELP!! What rims should I get??

hmmm with that color I would go with a black rim IMO... I think a gold/bronze rim wouldn't work so well, but that's me.

Re: HELP!! What rims should I get??

I agree that gold would look pretty good on your car. I'd go with that, it's different. I do think, however, that 18" is almost too big for a 7th gen. Maybe they're trying to tell you something by not offering anything that big in a 4x100. Go for some nice 17s, they'll be slightly cheaper, and prolly look better.

I'm beginning to agree with you on the whole 18" thing, I also think that they will be lighter as well. which is good. Ever since I posted that S15 with the Advan RGII's I'm thinking I might get those.....I did a photoshop with them and they look really nice.

Yeah I completely understand what you're saying. Trust me I have an aggressive enough body kit and paint to match what I'm doing. It's cool.

Hell yeah! I think black is coming to the end of it's cycle, at least for me....
I was looking at the work wheels, they're cool, nice color and everything, but it seems to me to be a little oddballish for my tastes. Although very nice on his car! YaY Gold FTW!

Haha, that's funny because I just sold my old rims to another person on this board, and they were Axis Reverbs. Really nice wheels and good price too...I think i'm done with the 5 spoke though. Good suggestion!

Re: HELP!! What rims should I get??

Ok I think I've decided, Here is two photoshops what do you think?
It's Advan RG II's 17 inch is ok with me, they're light, and rare.... Gold, functional it's all good.

DISCLAIMER!: This is just a photoshop, so it's just to get an idea on what it's going to look like. Peace out.

Re: HELP!! What rims should I get?? (Think i decided.)

I don't understand why everyone thinks that the rims in the picture is going to be the rims that I'm getting, it's just a photoshop. Which means that it's a conecpt, not the actual picture. I appreciate your concern, but I'm 100% sure I will be satisfied with my purchase, so it's all good.
I'll put a disclaimer on it, so no one gets confused! Haha
