motegi looks dope, im getting those next summer. I wouldnt suggest those rims for 16's though cause they will look smaller than 16' because they have a lip to them.

well... anything above 16 inchers affect 1/4 mile times right? thats my goal.... low 1/4 mile times. plus.... a drop will make them look a little bigger if not better......

if you're going for performance, why are you putting heavy rims (weight for 16x7 Motegi's FF7 is 19lbs) on your car?

16's are going to look tiny/stock, is your car lowered? And if your going for fast 1/4 mile times, you might want to save/spend your money on other things ya know.... i.e. save for a supercharger. I don't know what you have done to your car... so enlighten us!

if you want performance, get ssr competitions; end of discussion. btw, id go with 17" so you can put some 235/45's on the front and 215/50's on the back, cause youre gonna have a hard time finding those sizes in 16" form.

i would get light 17's...less tire sidewall roll potential, and u can fit a big brakekit..which if u wanna go fast is absolutly necessary

check out BBS, SSR, and im personaly a fan of Kazera as well

Those are ok...Im a big fan of the black chrome and polished lip look, but I would trongly suggest you consider on 17's. If performance is in mind, have u looked at maybe getting HFP wheels? Thats the route im taking. They look great, and the weight difference is very minimal compared to stock.

i would recommend 17 inch 5zigen fno1r-c's i had the 18x7.5 bronze ones and they were light as hell. so 17 must be weightless
