those do look pretty damn good, nice and big

but am i the only one who thinks they look really close to these rims? Mille Miglia EV-S. I always thought this ever since the RX-8 came out.

in another comparison that i had to do cuz my friend said the spokes are different (and shes right)



The mazda spokes are turned in and of course have those lil holes on them, not as angular.



mine dont, and are different. but still, its pretty close if you are just viewing from the side.

LOL @ plum

Anyway, I never realized that the EV-S's and RX-8 rims are so similar til now. I bet they would look great on an RX-7 as well, since they look that nice on the MX-6.

Man, Plum's getting owned left and right lately j/k Chris

Those RX-8 rims are tight. Knowing Mazda, I bet they're lightweight, too.

Man that pic in your post KCMC582 makes those rims look identical to the RX-8 rims . I misread your post too

And I can make mistakes, everyone does (yes, everyone) .

I bet they are, the RX-7's rims are like 13lbs, so I don't know how heavy are those RX-8's

Damn! The RX-7 rims are only 13lbs That's crazy. Those RX-8 rims look light so they're probably not much heavier than 13lbs.

Yup, a lot of MX-6/Probe guy got those FD's rims, it looks nice and it works great at the track hehe PICS They aren't as hot as the RX-8 rims, but they are pretty good for the $ I used to see them on ebay for $250 a set with tires, oh and they weight 13.8lbs

They're definitely not as nice as the RX-8 rims but for $250 w/tires, they don't have to be I'd definitely get a set of those if I wanted a good set of wheels for the track.

I've always like how MX-6's looked like and alot of people have commented on how the V6 feels like a mini-VQ engine from the maxima sites (alot of those people have had Probe's and MX-6's before). And it looks like the shiznat's with those rims makes me want to look for one now
