Since it seems almost everyone is asking for opinions on Wheels I thought it would make sense to put up a thread with photos of those of you who have aftermarket wheels. Obviously some websites have animated versions to try and get an idea what it will look like, but there is nothing like a real life look especially when it comes to choosing wheel diameter.

I think it would be beneficial to stick to a format so all info is provided.

Sedan/Koup: (Your Version)
Wheel Make: (Brand of Wheel)
Wheel Model: (Name of Wheel)
Wheel Size: (Diameter, Width, Offset)
Tire Make: (Brand of Tire)
Tire Model: (Name of Tire)
Tire Size: (Section Width/Sidewall Aspect Ratio/Diameter)
Suspension Modification: (Springs/Coilovers/Etc.)

*Side Profile Picture of Your Car*
*Stock Photo of Wheel*
*Stock Photo of Tire*

Comments: (Anything you have to say Pros/Cons of the Wheels or Tires)

Like I said, I think this will be beneficial to people looking to allow them to see different styles in real life situations.

Cool and fun thread, hope it catches on.

2010 Koup EX

18x8 Motegi MR116 wheels with a 42 offset

215/40R18 Toyo Proxes T1R tires

Eibach Pro-Kit springs with a front 1.2" and rear 1.0" drop











I really recommend these tires if you can afford them, they're nice and sticky and do pretty good in the rain. They're a bit more on the expensive side unless you can find a really good deal like I did on eBay.

Thanks Fas. :)

These are pretty old pics, I've done a few things since then. I'm waiting for a few things in the mail, install em, take new photos and enter FOTM. Then hopefully I'll be done modding if there's such a thing. :rolleyes:

@Jcaloon - post a pic(you're askin what people think, no pic)

I hope to post pics of my rims/tires in march. I'm getting 18X8 Enkei L-SR's with Nitto NT555's. They'll be 225/40/18s. Offset for these is +40, so i'm assuming it may tight. i've talked to 3 different dealers and they said it'll fit my car. even when i told em I have an Eibach kit on.

@ jcaloon - those wheels aren't too bad (not crazy about the colourful lip though), I personally prefer the look of the ti15's

Bump.

Come on guys/girls. If you keep this updated people know who has what, what fits, what rubs, etc. Makes life easier for everyone.

I am the only sedan with EX Koup wheels that I know of, so for reference:

I wanted to get some nice A/M wheels, but I didn't want to drop a grand...
