Default sportmax wheels

Hey guys, I figured that I would put it on here, but I am looking for a pair of the sportmax 002's in the 15x8 size. If you guys know of anyone that is selling some, please let me know. Thanks, Steve

I want black wheels with the beautiful machined lip. The car is also black, so I think it will all look like real stealthy. I also plan to run 195/45/15, these tires are expensive when you run across them, but with this, I think that I can get away with minimal rolling on the fenders.

Those wheels are just so damn sexy. I think I will start looking toward ebay here soon, if nobody is selling.

I just saw it and they were having a discussion about it on cr.net, this was a while ago though, but they said that it gives a little more room to allow just a real slight roll. When I get the time and the patience, I am going to roll and pull the fenders the right way and fit some 225's on at least the rear.

You have to get a fender roller, and a special heat gun, and you just take it real slow, haven't done it before, so this is going to be interesting.
