I am not typically looking for a 17" rim. I do prefer a 15, but to me the 17" racing harts are just pure sex.

Nice ride BTW

They're not NEARLY that heavy and I believe they're forged aluminum. Sure they don't weigh 13 pounds each but I really don't care, I have several stock sets for autocross anyway. I got five of them at the hefty price of $72 a wheel, four of them were brand new in the boxes. Tires are Kuhmo something max performance all seasons and were $68 a tire from my dealership.




Even with bone stock 140k mile suspension and stock ride height I think they look good.

Right place, Right time... Just wish I could get a few more sets. They were actually an auction on ebay that I managed to win for something like 300$. Had to drive 30 minutes out of town to pick them up.

We put them on my friends blue car to see if they'd rub when lowered. They did. Not too bad really, just rubs on the plastic liner in the front.

I think they look better on his car than they do mine!






Sorry if I'm driving anyone crazy with all the photos.. I'm a huge photography nut.

im not complaining, they look great. I think the fact that they *look* smaller than 17s makes it that much better.

Who the crap are you to tell me what i have or dont have? i DO have 17 inch SSRs and i CAN afford it *******. and looks like i was pretty damm close to the right weight too.

shouldnt have wasted your first post on mt.net trying to prove me wrong only to get shot down horribly.
