Also, no black with chrome lip. I saw that on a Dodge Caliber, neon, astro van, camry, honda, alero, and a buick in the last week.

I think that black rims with chrome lips are so over played and look cheap. But everyone has their opinions, go on tirerack.com and check out their assortment of rims on your car.

Seconded.

Especially being from this area... I joke about it often, actually. Just about any stop light I'm at I can find at least one car/truck with the black/polish going on.

Half the time it's 40+yo men in trucks and SUV's, too.

yes, staggered wheels on a FWD is the way to go, wider back wheels definitely help with launches.*

Yes! I love sarcasm...and practicality...which staggered wheels are not. Unless you are made of money! I am not so I fouund a good seller out of california... wheelstudio.com Lorenzo there was more than helpful

Axis web site lists the decade 18x8.5 silver with stainless 2.5" lip at $349 or $399 each

I STOLE these suckers at $112.xx shipped/ea. Wholesale on Nitto neogen put the whole $2200 retail packeage right around $800ish.


Look on ebay...that is where I started. Like anything do not jump the gun

Only complaint is the are soft...the finnish is very fragile. I have had Borbert;s and TSW...Borbet are by far the Shit as being tough as nails but are $$$

Definately, my type FS Borbets are bomb proof. They are coming up pretty cheap too and look good on Saabs (at least I love mine on my ng900).

The only reason I bring Up the "madee of money" part of staggered wheels is that they ability to rotate the tires is out the window at that point....ride em then replace them=$
