Picked these up from a guy up in Denver today, got a great deal on em. Will post better pics once they and the car are cleaned up and the sun is up but these are it for now. They are Rota Slipstreams 17x8 in bronze.

I like Rota's, just not particularly fond of those... but if the price was right... why not

I'm thinking about 18x8.5 Rota Tarmac IIIs in hyper black...

Amazing.

Sean, if we were friends you'd buy me a set of Advans in gunmetal as a housewarming gift.

Boring is what I wanted, was looking for bronze 5 or 6 spoke wheels in a similar design to the stock wheels just slightly bigger and wider. These will provide a decent gain in grip just going from the stock 205 to 225 or 235 wide tires. Def not going for flashy on any exterior modifications, I like the gold rims on Aspen White subys but there are so many of them around here I decided to go the darker bronze.

Put a few more stickers on your car. I think they would really dress it up.

No need to be flashy, too many cars around here, and everywhere i'm sure, go with some chromed out or flashy wheel that stands out too much from the car I think. I'm ok with the wheels blending in more with the car overall. I'll soon need the better traction when my car gets a couple upgrades and tuned the first weekend in October.
