Not my style but they look nice, offsets too low for me- at least they arent 0. Mariner blue ftw

Decent looking, but I think the 13lbs is wishful thinking. That looks to be a pretty stout wheel.

They look really nice, only problem i see is the 7 inch wide. Totally should be x 8 or if possible x 9.

Don't mind everyone else talking about the offset being off. It's great. it sits flush with the car and widens your wheel base.

I dont think there is any problem with 7 in wide. I fit 215 falkens on my 7 in wide rims easy, i actually really like how the sidewall of the tires sit flush with the lip of the rims.

Again, if i had a choice i would have went bigger though.

that's the look the konig rewinds couldn't pull off. if they made those in a 16x8 et30 i'd be all over them.

Those wheels look really good, but I bet they rub on a really hard corner. :(
