The wheels are nice. The gold would look very nice with the white, however they are on 6.5 wide (for the 15"). My Heluims are 6.5 wide and with only 8 psi of boost I already feel like I need more tire. With a 6.5 wheel 205 tires are the biggest you can fit. I would look for something wider, especially since you indicated that you road race and auto X. Just my opinion.

FWIW I'm running 225-50-15's on 6.5" Motegi's. They fit.

A friend of mine had a set and when he got into an accident they shattered. They were great looking wheels but if you hit anything with them you're done.
