Default XXR wheels any good?

http://www.nlmotoring.com/XXR-501-Wh...p/50158083.htm

They're inexpensive so I'm asking if anyone has had any experience with these wheels and if they're a good choice they're 15x8's.

I'll take that as a "no dude, you're a total noob" and just save up for the 6ul's .

So when I get the 6ul's then the right tire size for it is 225/50r15 correct? I want to get them in flat black looks cool.

You won't find that size. Closest size is 225/45

Why don't you just search? You keep setting yourself up for flameage.

They are pretty garbage wheels. On that note, I really like my Konig Retrack 15x7.5 wheels with +32mm offset. Nice 3" lip, and very light.

Lets wait for the XTRs to come out. Should be a quality wheel for the cheap.

Now I have a question:

Will I notice any increase in handling with these 6ul wider wheels and good tires?

Nope.

Just like a turbo, supercharger, or any other performance enhancing modification, it will decrease your performance and make you slower all around.

We do it cause we like to look tight y0

Are enkei's just as good as 6ul's? Because I found some nice looking enkeis in 4x100 15x8.
