@Saynotopistons...

Do you have a winning blue 8? What wheels you running if your such a boss?

No I don't and I'm running stock wheels. Yes, they are better than the turds you've chosen thus far.

If your running stock then as far as I'm concerned, your opinion doesn't matter. Eat my troll ***.

Why don't you spend $300 on some lowering springs and an alignment instead of $600 on some aftermarket wheels that are heavier and same size as stock? I know you aren't tracking your car, and you seem to only care about looks. In my opinion, a lowered RX-8 with stock wheels will look ten times better than a stock height RX-8 with aftermarket "look at me" wheels.

As with anyone else's. Apparently someone running stock wheels has more style and perception of what performs better than you. It's okay. You can attract all the junior high girls you want with those Need for Speed: Underground wheels.

ahhh i love car forums.......only place where grown men can argue with children that are not their own.

And to agree with nopistons those wheels are terrible and the picture you posted has not swung any opinion in your favor.

Could care less if you go with "cheap" wheels, rotas are fine as well as konig but just get something that is tasteful and that you feel you can grow with and not feel like a fad while you are in high school

He seems like the kind of dude that just cuts his springs for free.

Audis stud pattern (5x112) will work with wobbly nuts, but the centre bore for audis is 66 not 67.1

@JCrane82.

I'm the one with the blue 8 with the konig lace wheels. I started this thread and now I have a lowering kit to make the wheels look better. Even though I think they look fine already. I'm always ready for negative feedback lol

One of my buddies wants to sell my some Ray's Engineering 5 spoke rare black 57pro's. They are 19" legit Rays with stickers to prove it. He wants to sell them to me for 1200 with tires. Sounds like a steal right? Here is a pic>>
