MB Motorsports VR5S 18X8

he he looks sweet, but expensive ;)
Well really it was much cheaper than the ones I really wanted. These were only $164/ea and the tires were only $141/ea for a total of $1350, really wasn't that expensive. Plus the place I got them from matches each wheel and tire, ballances them, and mounts the tires, and I got lifetime free replacement certificates for the tires. So when I get them all I have to do is put them on and I am good to go! :)

I am soooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it just a visual thing or will the car ride better?
Both actually. The stock rims are ok but not that visually appealing. On top of that the stock rims are really bad, they are way too soft and get dented or bent easily.

Right now I have 2 rims that are bent soo bad they can't be properly ballanced, and I refuse to pay the $350 per rim to get stock replacements. The rims I bought are 1/2 a pound lighter (less unsprung weight) and are made from a better material so they won't dent so easy, not to mention half the price.

So there was many benifits to this long awaited upgrade.
