Default Cheap Konig wheels

I just ordered a set of Konig Helium 15x6.5 in bronze for $370 shipped. Those are brand new.

their prices are about the same. vulcan has them for $2/pc cheaper but i will have to pay for shipping from either one. i will just pick those up when wheels come here. im still waiting on top hats, bump stops, springs, and high-flow catalytic to finish my car

Those are some pretty sexy wheels.

The "Beyond" would look good on my dads mustang for sure!

I think the 99/00 15" alloys are around 13.5 lbs which is what I have the V700s mounted on. But they were cheap.

Hehe good wheels!

I tend to like more the britelite model but they weight a little more (11.6 Helium vs 12.6 Britelite) Good to see you're happy with your choice!

yeah, I have 2 sets for sale since I picked up the volks. I'm still going to run the 99 wheels on the street though.
