you need wider rubber, looks good, just put some 225's on that and no taller than 45-50 the tires on there now are too narrow

ZOMG JDM VOLKS ARE WORTH $1000000000000000
That's sarcasm right? I don't think people have had much luck getting wider rubber than 195 in the front without flares or raising the car a good deal.

The Volks are expensive because they are good wheels. The 002's are made of powdered metal, and have fake plastic rivets along the rim to make them look like a multi-piece wheel. Someone on here has a picture of the wheel's failure mode (which is catastrophic). Additionally, they are heavy. They look good, and are obviously the look you were going for, but I found it hard to ignore the negatives when i was wheel shopping a while back.

I like the low offset look, but i could never justify running so narrow a tire. Particularly if boost enters the equation.

Yeah - my Kosies were super cheap (~110/wheel), 15x7 (lots of good tires available, wide with some sidewall) and weigh *11 LBS*.

What's not to like? If you're worried about how they look, drive naked, it'll keep the eyes off of them

I wouldn't mind getting some K1's in a low offset, if they make them.
