:o  When I was younger and had money, No taxes to pay, I would have been looking at new wheels .

 Now I am quite happy with the stock wheels and the 225/60/14 tires, If I were to switch wheels and tires it would be very expensive$$$$$$. :cross:

The Rota RB wheels are only available in 16x7" with a 4mm offset right now. If your not going bigger than 225/45/16. Then I would not recommend the 8" rims. The Rota RB wheels are exact copies of the Panasport wheels. The Rewinds are similar but have a more rounded spoke but they are available in 8".

I love the stock wheels, but go have fun finding any decent tires in 225/60-14.  I think it is down to 3 companies that still make them and none of them are that good.

The package would be spendy to put on the car, but 16" tires are cheaper than proper 14" tires are getting.

I'm confused.  Neither wheel is listed in 16x8!  

Konig Rewind

Rota RB
There is a 15x8 RB listed.

Maybe the eBay listing has fubar'd measurements cuz someone measured the rim w/ a tape & saw it was 8" across the bead edges??

I'm gonna get Sportmax 002 or 501 in gunmetal, or Maxxim Screech in black.

As much as I like the Screech, I think I'll probably end up with (one of) the Sportmax's...

hehe with all the rims you guys post up seems like there is enough variety for my likings :P

I just wish they were lighter options, the rewinds are decent but some of those nice looking rims are like 17+lbs.

I tried looking for those Special Rota Grid 16 x 8 +10 cuz those look HOT. I think I want to get my hand on those for sure when I have the money, if they aren't too heavy.

but damn. If I had the money i'd get these right now. Ebay Link

$620 to me is pretty cheap

I'll be going with the SportMax 002's in 16x8. I have been looking around and the 15's are getting to soon be like 14's and the 16" tires are not much more than the 15" tires that are still around.

I maybe wrong on the Konig Rewinds in 16x8". But I've called the Rota supplier directly. And the RB's are not being made in 16x8" in the USA. At least that was the case a few months ago. I still don't see why you'd want the 16x8".
