Default New wheels! Nothing special....

Just got my new wheels in today, I'm a poor bastard and couldn't afford the 15x9 6UL's I so badly wanted, hope Emilio doesn't hate me for this one. Anyways, got these from Tire Rack, TRM C1's 15x8 +20 in Bright Silver finish. $435 shipped, I had to order these under a 90 model BMW. Luckily, for anyone person on here that has a BMW I have a set of FREE lugbolts that comes with the wheels if anybody wants them!!!

Got tired of my XXR's giving me nothing but **** for alignment capabilities (15x8 +0).

More pix tomorrow when mounted!

Thank you sir, pictures mounted tomorrow! Original theme because its a Merlot was gold spoked wheels with polished lip, so I'm pondering maybe trying to infuse gold in with this wheel somehow??? When the funds are right i'll drop some $$$ on them 6UL's I still so dearly want!

Can't fit bigger on these wheels with my setup lol, these are going to be street wheels only. I have a set of steelies I use to mount my strip tires on. Actually in the process of building a 1.8 right now to turn up the boost.

Honestly not a bad street wheel for the price. Get us some mounted pics!

But yeah, I'm gonna try to track the XTRs.

Can you get an accurate weight on that wheel?

I looked a little, most relative thing I found is that the 15x7 with tire is already at 31.5lbs.

actually 225/50 isn't really stretched.

at least not any more than what EVERYONE here is running: which is 225/40
It does look tall as hell .
195's on the other hand, will look stretched as hell
