I'm not usually one to go with black rims, but they were cheap and I think they look decent with 235/40/18 BFG KDW's mounted. Black 18x7.5 ASA AR1

looks good man. I dont typically like black rims either, but they look clean.
The KDW 2's are intersting tires. I expected ride quality to go down with 40 series tires. Ride quality is much better, however turn in is more vague now, but grip is a lot better. These tires remind me of Falken Azenis Sports, but they have tread!

What pressures do people usually run BFG KDW 2's for Autocross? The KDW's feel like they want more pressure and I'm at 38 psi now.

Did you have to roll the fenders? Seems like everyone who's gone with anything over a 225 says they get rubbing if they don't roll the fenders.

No rubbing as the wheel offset is correct. The clearence on front suspension is real close however.
I love how mine look.

like the wheels, but you need to have some of those swirl marks removed damn there is a lot.

Sweet, how much did you pay for the set with tires? Those looks pretty damn good and I might have to grab a set :drive:

I've got a Black GT and I like that silver band on the outside of the wheel, contrasts with the black on the car and wheel nicely. Nice ride, man!

Just found this auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/18x7-5-ASA-...98800QQtcZphoto

tires and wheels for $1000, not too bad. Is that about what you paid? Obviously you've got 235s so you might have paid more on the tires but I think 225s will be good enough for TWS when I go in a month. I'm a little nervous since you said that you were not rubbing, but close on the front suspension. Taking corners at 90-100 at TWS, I don't want tires and suspension pieces anywhere near each other :)

BTW the offset they list in the auction is 52mm, is that correct for our car?

Thanks!

I didnt know this was thread about swirl marks. Try having your car more than a couple of months then talk to me about swirl marks. I dont need a noob telling about imperfections on my car. I will bet any money if you put youre car in that same kind of lighting you will have swirl marks too. :eek:fftopic:

swirl marks are absolutely no fun at all... only way to keep from getting them is to garage your vehicle from day one and never let it out... EVER! but hell, nothing you can do about it otherwise... the car loves to be outdoors so let it be....

:thefing: and :kissass: thats not the point of this thread. So no he doesnt have a point. I f*****g hate when people post off topic just so they can say something. If you have nothing to give to the thread dont post anything. I dont go around pointing out imporfections about other peoples cars. Niether do 95% of the people on this forum. I guess you guys are that 5% a** whole part. I am very offended and would have not done that to anyone else.
can we see some better pictures of the speed6? please
Back on topic. I almost got those same kind of rims. The ones I have now I have had for a while. Im going change them to a 5 spoke but I am staying with black.
Nice, these are the rims that I'm going to be getting in the next month or so.... after I get these freakin' headers fixed.
