Default Need help with wheel choice

My car came in today and its allot better than i thought. The suspension is not blown but the teins are still going in. I'm on two spares right now and need wheels desperately.








I had gram lights on my NA but want to go a different route... Anyone selling their wheels? I'm looking for 16x8 or x9 with an offset that wont need the fenders to be pulled but rolled is fine. I was offered some Sportmax 002's but not really sure how i feel about those. Help?

Sounds like you have 6ul money. I hear they kick ***. You should get them.

You've got no location for people to help you. Many extra wheels on this forum from what I can tell. Hustler has 17 sets of 6uls.

Your personal taste and what you want to do with the car would help significantly...

The 15x9's are a perfect fit for an NB. I don't think you have to roll anything either.

Honestly they're pretty cheap for what they are, you can save a bit of money if you skip on the metal valvestems or if you have your own lugs lying around, but the 949 lugs are awesome

For cheap, the autozone whatever lugs for $30 for 20 work fine and fit on 6UL's. I have them.

You won't find a better deal in a decent sized wheel with light weight than the 6UL.

You could buy the new tire rack cheapies for $200 less for the set, but $400 vs $600? It's a no brainer.

the 15x9's are almost $800 not $600 for the set. Regardless, that still isn't a bad price. if i don't find anything interesting in the next few days im probably going to go with them
