How "ricey" will I be?

So as some of you already know, two of my Centerlines (17x7, +42 offset) are cracked, and I need to get my wheels replaced. These were the closest replacements I could find. They are about the same weight (0.2 lbs heavier) and they come pre-painted. I wanted to go with the 17x8 Motegi Traklite 2.0 wheels, but when I went to my local Les Schwab to test out how a 17x8, +45 offset wheel with 235 wide tires fit, it just stuck out too much. So that idea went out the door. So here I am with these 17x7, +50 offset wheels, which should put the outside edge of the tires inside my fentder 3 mm [Current + 8 - (10/2) = 3] more than my curent set up. Which is good for me, because currently the outside tire bulge is sticking out a millimeter or two.

Close-up


On my car via Tire Rack's "view on car" simulator.


My current wheels.


So... how ricey do you think the replacements are? I mean, they're not really ricey, since they're being purchased for weight/performance... but the styling has a hint of rice on them I think. Anyway, what I'm trying to get is opinions as to how much flak I'm going to get from other enthusiasts that see me rolling around on these wheels... until they get smoked (from a roll, of course).

200 a pop? Do you like that specific design, i mean it looks good but keep in mind you can pick up Honda silverstar 5spokes for like 5~600shipped. But i mean it's always down to if you like it or not because afterall its your car.

Honda Silverstar 5 Spokes are also ridiculously heavy. Ever since I went lightweight forged, I can't go back to heavy cast.

Anyway, thanks for the input guys, I guess they aren't as bad as I thought. As for "what do you like", I don't like them nearly as much as normal "solid" 6-spoke designs. I'dve prefered they have been true 12-spoke or solid 6-spoke like my current Centerlines, rather than the 6x2-spoke design. Anyway, as long as they aren't too funky junky to most, I should be safe.

PS I hate five spoke rims, just personal taste. :P

Does it actually come with 2 valves?...

They're really not that bad, and considering they are for performance rather than aesthetics, they should do the job quite well.

How did the Centerlines crack? =(

IMO the Centerline rims are "ricey". I wouldnt opt for another set of 17x7 rims either man. Get some beefier wheels and get some 17x8's. Why worry about looking "mexican" when its for performance? I think you have the wrong mentality for being "rice."

Look into some Enkei's.

Nah I found out that the setup that I wanted actually had 17x9 in the rear and that was too wide as compared to the 16 and 17" setup on the older models that had 17x8.5 +60mm rear wheels and would be great but styling wise they're not as good.

Those wheels not ricey at all imo, but if you looking for stronger and lighter wheels you should look into Enkei RPF1 those are super light and strong for being a cast wheel...

They weight .1 lb more in 17x8...If you looked between 18x7.5 Koseis have more advantage since they weight about 1lb less. I don't know how reliable are Koseis are since they are not forged, same as Enkeis but the RPF1s have more history to them, and designed after F1 McLaren wheels.

What size are you looking at? They weight 15.4 in 17x8. Enkei RPF1s are crazy light in 15-16" the weight ranges from 9 to 10lbs. I would say get the Enkeis they look really good. That were the wheels I was initially was going to get, but I think 5zigen FN01R-C in bronze looks much better since I don't care about the weight. My AV6 is not gonna see track or a supercharger lol...
