    Wheel Thread - Photos & Examples

    Post a photo here with your car and the new wheels you put on. Stock wheels need not apply because we already know how those look on the car.

    Let's see them ... oh and please at least tell us what wheel you have on the car.
    Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by hundreds of engineers that get paid thousands of dollars for something you bought at Pep Boys because your buddy who doesn't have a job told you it was 'better'?!?

    I'll add to this post once I take better pictures....the weather has been so damn shitty up here...snowed 6 inches this past Monday. But then we ran the auto-x on Wednesday!

    I love the exhaust....just love it. SOOO aggressive at higher rpms, yet quite on the highway. At my auto-x's, every single person says I have the best sounding car around.

    The SSR GT2 look really good... so do the CH-R, but they lose points for being 20s.

    yeah- I have too many wheels me thinks. I have a set of wheels for any type of driving.... Stock wheels, daily driving, D-force for mountain runs/autoX, SSRs for track, BBS for shows.

    SSR wheels and BBS wheels are FOR SALE!

    1500 shipped for SSR with hoosiers
    3500 shipped for BBS with brand new PS2s

    if anyone is interested..........

    How much do the SSR GT2 and BBS CH-Rs weigh. I think the CH-Rs were supposed to be heavy weren't they?

    the BBS wheels are little piggies- They look great though, actually ride VERY well for 20s and its really hard to tell the extra weight- Normal daily driving or fast daily driving, its hard to feel the difference.

    I wheel and tire combined weights-

    BBS 20x9 with 255/30 PS2 = 56lbs
    BBS 20x10.5 with 295/25 PS2= 58.6lbs

    SSR 19x10 with 265/35-19= 43.4 lbs

    I measured my factory 19s at 47.8 front and 49.9 lbs rear

    THe D-force wheels weigh 45.x lbs wheel and tire

    Greg, they look great. Nice combo.



    Hope you don't mind. Here's mine. It's not for everyone, but I wanted a color similar to the stock 18's. Anthracite on Space Grey.

    Are there any other pictures. I just bought a 2009 M3 Convertible and want to change from the stock wheels.

    I love the look of the 360 forged. The chrome and fat lip are awesome.
