I'm from Texas and let me tell you, it's not cool. Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, CorpusChristi, ain't got **** on Florida man that's where it's at. Been to New York too, sucks *** over there too crowded. But Florida's where it's at beautiful state that's where I'm moving when I get my collision repair certificate and land a job and become and accomplished collision repair tech or painter or both.

I'm guessing you're about 17.42 years old.

XXR wheels aren't terrible... They aren't the best but they are not the worst, same with Rota's that used to be shitty and crack.
If you need a cheap wheel that you can replace easily, get XXR's or ROTA's.
Unless you mainly track your car or take it to AutoX's, it doesn't really matter if you get 6UL's or other ultra-light wheels...
But the decision is upto you.

Tires on the other hand, get good tires, don't cheap out, save and buy good tires.

I like passing people with expensive wheels. It makes me feel special inside.

Hate to join the necro-resurrection, but what the hell.

Just pony up and get some Ronals. You know you want to.

You are a failure. Enjoy your PM in the sale thread and your subsequent temp ban. We don't tolerate spamming to get PM privileges here. It is an insult to us.

Heyy nothing wrong with that... I don't have ebay wheels though (FWIW, a buddy of mine has a civic hatch with a built D16 (WTF??) and a massive turbo, he let me drive it a while ago. I'm used to ridiculously quick spool up with my car, his drove like a stock civic until 4800 rpms then set me back in the seat like a Z06 or something. Torque steer FTL.)

All of mine have been strong as hell, but they better be for weighing 300lbs each.

I have abused them as much as any other person has or will.
