I'm currently leaning towards the Konig Illusions (2nd one) but I also like these 2. Curious as to what you guys think.

EDIT: New wheel added to the running: Enkei EKM3's... but I don't know how to add it to the poll. Let me know what you think.

Konig's a reputable brand. Personally I've never used them but they're very popular. I remember when they first released the "Illusions" it was a big deal at the time. Out of the three go with the Illusions, they look the best.

If you like Konig Rims consider looking at "BBS Rims".

Personally I like machined rims because they look clean, unique and no one has them. I'm still trying to find these exact rims. They're near impossible to find.

Yeah I'm definitely leaning towards Illusions. If the Lace was blacked out I probably would of gone with that. I want to stay away from silver/chromey. Trying to stick to black and blue. Will I be able to remove the TMPS sensor from the stock wheels and put them in these? Or am I going to be riding around without them (Can't afford another $300+ for new sensors)

No worries there. I plan on getting Hankook Ventus V4's I've heard great things about them. Discount Tire Direct has them for $99 each. with a $50 discount for a set.

shattered, sorry to hear about the rock chips. Could you take a picture so I can see what I may have to look forward to if I get these? Overall I've heard good things about Konig but a friend of mine is telling me not to because they bend.

It only happens to the rear. Its because the spokes stick out past the lip which sticks out past the fender. I have the 18 x 8s but I bet this wouldn't happen with the 17 x 7s. My rims aren't usually clean enough to tell that they are chips. Still kind of sucks, only had them for 9 months.

Whatever I end up getting will be 17's. Why do you think it wouldn't happen with them?

Konig and Enkei are both great brands, I had Konigs on my Suzuki Aerio like 6 years ago and sold them before I got ride of the car. The guy I sold them to still has them. Also look at 5Zigen, I had Super6's and loved them.

The Illusions are nice, as everyone has stated, but I like those last Enkeis you put on there. Know of anyone else having those? If not, you'd be a bit more unique in that aspect, since someone else also has the Illusions. Thinking about some Platinum 212 Widows with some Hankook Ventus V12s, myself. :)
