If you're dropping $4k+, GET SOMETHING ORIGINAL. Find something you like that no one else has.

update:

so ultimately decided to go with BBS, but different route then i had ever planned.

Decided to get wheels that look sick and also good for track use (unlike the heavy HREs and LM-Rs)

so i went with BBS GT4s.. mmhmmmmmmmm.. thats all i can say

good choice on the wheels, BBSs are great for the track and the GT4s look absolutely stunning, btw just curious, what stock wheels did your car come with?
