This time of the year for rims!

I am struggling in the wheel options. My budget is $1300 so JDM wheels are out of question for now. I was looking around WheelsNext...and Konig Unknown looked really appealing to me. I always liked how Axis Spiders looked on cleancoupe's car but they are discountied. If you guys have advises on color and wheel style please let me know what you think. My car is black AV6 coupe...

The G35 rims would rub like a mutha...offset is too low. Thats what I've been told to get GNs...but I can only get them in 17" lolz I am too broke for 18s. Than I would get them in bronze.

You said $1,300 for wheels, the price per wheel is less than $1,300 for four 18s.

$1500 with tires?! Thats cake!

I wish I had like $1300 to drop on some rims. All my sets were below that and I think they are alright. Nothing to fancy but good enough.

kinda sucks that g35 rims are not same size all around. maybe somebody would sell 2 front once and find 2 more front once from other ppl if they messed their back once. i like how they look and they should be pretty light if they forged i think. is it true if they are forged they are lighter then similar 19" rims?

Since your just 'hoping' for it to come with tires, i know a good set of 18's you can get that dont come with tires that you can easily fit into your budget... WEEEEDDZZZZ!!!

But you might not want to drive on those rims.. Save up until you can afford tires too

Oh, and dont get the SA-70's those are mine

Well I singled out everything, and came across two of my choices. As you can tell I am a fan of multispokes no five spokes for me I don't have ENDLESS or Project Mu brakes to do that . Here are my two choices: Sport Maxx 006 Gloss Black/Chrome Lip (Bling Bling Son), or R1 Milano Gold w/ Polish Lip. R1 Racing wheels are just replica rip-offs of all different Rays and Hart wheels lolz.

R1 Milano:






Sport Maxx:

Guess what I'm looking at some Volk AV3s tomorrow looking to pick them up this weekend 18x7.5 +44 225/40/18 Dunlops 85% thread left. I won't buy them unless they are bent to shiatz, because price is TOO good to pass up.
