I think I'd rather have the FOUR (4) bolt pattern than the SIX

I've got the Drag DR-21's
I ordered them from www.discounttiredirect.com when they were doing their $100 off sale and got them with 205/50/15 Falken Ziez 512's mounted and balanced all for $528 shipped.
here are some pics. I really like these wheels. They are a knock off of the Enkei RP-F1, and are really lightweight

I have the bronze Heliums right now. But they only come 6.5'' width. I want 7" so I can go with 225's and I want black wheels.

40 offset looks fine on 92mazdarati's car. Just needs wider tires they look a little stretched.

IMO the offset actually looks perfect for the car, not too aggressive, but just right. I'm not trying to be the Drift King, just want my car to look clean, and it does. Thanks for your opinion though

No doubt, your car looks very clean and those wheel do help it, that's not what I meant.

Lookin good 92mazdarati, Great price to. I bought some rims for 350 and looking to spend about 250 in cheap kumho tires so you got me beat. I may just sell what I have and follow your foot steps. I wonder if they can get anything in a 30 or 35 offset... - Bryan

Performance wise...40 offset is a bit on the high side

Ahh, yeah but for daily driving there fine. I plan to pickup some dedicated track wheels in the future.

I've autox'd on both Kosei K1's and K1 TS in the same size wheel with the same size tire and similiar offset and have been real happy with those setups as well

does anyone have the REAL weights for these two wheels? if they're light, it'd be great, cause discounttire has an awesome free shipping + 10% off deal right now (ends today, i think)

What size tires do you guys run with 15x7? Id like to use 225/45-15 but there isnt much available and i think 225/50-15 might be too big.

ihmcguinness, im gonna call tire rack now and ask about weight.
