Default (4) White 15x7 4x100 Kosei K1's with new rubber

I'm looking to sell (or trade) my white 4x100 15x7 +38 Kosei K1's. I'd like to get something either a little wider, or with a lower offset. These are perfect track wheels, plus they look straight up sexy. They weigh like 12 lbs and come with a new set of 205/50/15 Nitto NeoGen's already mounted and balanced. The rims aren't perfect, most have some rash on them, you can thank the previous owner for that.

Price: $650 OBO + shipping
Location: Wisconsin



They're all a little dusty, but here's a close up of each wheel:





I'm sure the rash on them could easily be covered up with some white plasti-dip, it's not even visible from a couple feet away.

I'm interested in these, and have the money, but my car is red so I'd have to deside if I'd like the look.

i've always been a big fan of the kosei k1's. Great rims!

Not sure if you're interested but got a set of 2004 Mazdaspeed OEM Racing Hart Rims (17x7) if you're interested.

Honestly, they look sexy on any color, I've seen 'em on a few already.

I wish mine never got painted silver before I bought them.

Red NA w/ white K1's is a true WIN; have no fears about that.

I'd totally throw down cash now to have those wheels. Good luck with your sale.

Hey, it's good to know the car looks good with them. I just googled some red cars with white wheels, and it does. I was kind of afraid of the import tuner look, whereas I'm going for the classic car look, but I dont think I really care. I'll buy whatever is a good deal and looks good .

I do need to research what performance difference there would be with a 15x7 vs a lighter 15x8 or 15x9. I was originally looking for RFP1s or 949s, I'm not quite to the wheel and tire stage of my project, but a serious buyer may be coming soon.

Not trying to boast my own sale here, but this is arguably the best performance wheel setup out there. The wheels are one of the lightest, strongest available, and the offset combined with the width is perfect for the track. I've got ~200whp and this wheel/tire setup has been amazing for me, very predictable with constant traction. If you want to search or if anyone wants to chime in, feel free, I'm confident in saying this.

I'm just looking for something a little more stance oriented, otherwise I'd definitely hold onto them.

If cast aluminum is strong then yes they're strong, if light is as light as a wider rim, yes they're light...

I didn't say it was the number one best rim ever, I believe it's arguably one of the best setups available for the price.
