TSW Nurburgring Wheels????

Has anyone tried these wheels on their RX-8? I have been looking for a wheel in this style since I don't feel like shelling out $3k for the R3 wheels. Wondering what they would look like on the 8. I remember seeing a thread where someone could photoshop wheels onto your car, does anyone know this thread or have images of their car with these wheels?

Link: http://www.tswalloywheels.com/alloy_...urburgring.php

I think the "mirrored/polished" finished would be better than the gunmetal though. Any thoughts?

click the wheel configurator in the center of the page, should have a pic of an audi on it. They dont have mazda on there but you can view cars with whatever rims you want on it. I think they look pretty good personally.

I've done a little research on these wheels and found some S2000 guys running them. 17" wheels are only 17lbs. Freakin' light. They are pretty well priced too from what I've seen.

Somebody get them!

S2000 guys are liking them as they come in friendly non-staggered sizes (17x9 +63) and are reasonably light.

Also consider the new 949 6ULR wheels, similar price, size and weight:
I think charcoal looks awesome.

The new TSWs are also getting popular with the BMW community since one of the designs look like the original CSLs.

bump, somebody get an accurate scale.

TSW very specifically states that the 17x9 size *starts* at 19.2 lbs each

They look a lot like the R3 wheels

edit- maybe not I just looked the r3 is missing a few spokes.
