Those wheels actually look badass on your car.

Too bad the offset and tire widths are all wrong.

Aside from the "drift" looking tires, I think it looks hella hot. How'd you do?

edit: how much of a drop is that and how bad do your tires rub?

I didn't move the car. I just put them on to see what they looked like. Ride height is 11.75F, 12.25R. Work Equip 03s, 14x8 +8 front 15x9 +23 rear, 195/45s all the way around. The tire stretch is unbelievable.

They are for sale, if anyone is interested.

i like the look of those rims, but first 14!!!!! why 14s. Second for a 9in rim who the hell puts a 195 on it. **** I got 195 on my 8s and that is only cause I need stiffer springs or flares before i can do 205 or 215

I would run a staggered wheel set like that. Makes tire replacing a pain in the *** and doesn't seem ideal. You seem to be running a lot of rear camber o_O

Still want them, either in a 15 x 8, or 16 x 8. +15 seems pretty ideal to me. I know a lot of people...not here granted, really like +0 offset. +15 seems like it pulls pretty close to flush, If I wasn't interesting in drifting though, a +0 would probably be my aim, for drifting though I'd really rather not box the car out and make it HARDER to drift....

that rear tire is a T1-R, isn't it? It looks like it's on the rim wrong. Is that a drift thing?

yeah, that's all i got. i don't understand this "style", so i'll just shut my big fat mouth

i prefer the original Savington-mobile.

I don't understand the "drift" thing.. Seems totally pointless and hella gay waste of money to me.

Why do I get the feeling that Savington is only checking for reactions? Those are not your wheels and I think you only put them on to see how they looked in your car.

i kinda like how it looks, but im sure its not functional at all,
i live in an area with lots of pot holes, my tires protect my rims,
if i did something like that, i'd be replacing rims pretty often

Other than me having a hard time reading the thread title,it does not look too bad.

The Cr.net guys would be sucking your dick if they saw your car with those wheels.

the wheels themself look nice, the offsets and the tires are all wrong for the car, i guess it's a drift thing but i can't grasp the appeal of it

If my car were a solid inch lower than it is right now, I could definitely see it looking pretty neat, but it's also totally unuseable. Just looks retarded as it sits. My friend couldn't stop laughing at how awful it looks, especially the front.

My buddy got the wheels with a turbo Miata he bought (exhondaman's car, actually), and I wanted to see what they looked like on my car. Don't worry, I haven't moved to SoCal.
