Hey everyone. I just bought a set of 18" Moda MD7 rims (245/45R18)'s. I think that it is going to look great, problem being I just need to save up for tires as theyre expensive as f**k. Heres a few pics :

I can't really say how good they look. Get them mounted on the car and post pics! Very Happy

I was looking at these rims. Make sure to post pics! I think they'll look good. There's a member on here with those wheels, that color of imp, and vogtland's.

These look pretty nice mounted!I I SHOULD have enough money for tires by next weekend after i get paid. Then ill have to get them mounted at a shop and I'll post pics. I was originally going to get 18" AR Villains but i decided these looked better. Black is played out in my opinion, so i got grey

I was remembered, yes! Unfortunately, I enjoyed being the only person with those that I had seen on here... and now someone is seriously considering them for their Grand Prix on another forum. *sigh* so much for being different! I love those rims, AND the tires I got to go with them. The tires came out to about as much as the rims were, great performance, AWESOME treadwear, and cheap... and QUIET! Look into the Continental Extreme Contact DWS, you WON'T be disappointed at all!

Don't bother trying to use the Hub Centric rings they sent with those wheels... you don't need them at all, and the rings are a PITA!

If the wheel bore is different than the hub size, you absolutely should use the hub centric rings to keep the rim centered on the hub and reduce stress on the wheel studs

I would agree, but the fit of the MD7s are almost identical to my stockers, so I have no issue running without the rings. 20,000 hard-driven miles (many times over 120mph in Germany) with no vibration or problems whatsoever.

Well, ill get better pics later, these were taken with my bad 2MP iphone camera. In real life they fill out the wheel wells much better and look a lot bigger. Overall i LOVE these rims. I also have my GMPP exhaust installed as well. More pics to come.

I ended up going with 245/45/18 Eagle RS-A's, they are really nice and quiet. Im very happy with my purchase, and yes the rear is low in these pics because I still have the stock 16's and tires in the trunk and back seats (Im thinking about selling them)
