those are the wheels i've been waiting to get for a while. its either the traditional badass 5-spoke or mesh like ASA AR1. looking at them again...the spokes seem really thick compared to any pictures i've seen of the K3. they must've used 18"s for the pics :(

what tires are you putting on there? did you get 17x7 or 17x7.5?

They do look a little thick, but maybe its the angle of the photo I took. I am using the stock michelin tires from the factory; no sense in tossing those things until they are burned up I think. I believe the k3 is a 17x7 inch rim. Again I think by Tuesday they will be on, and then we'll see what they look like for sure. Why so many holes..... I don't know, its just the way the wheel was designed, I think the other holes are the 4x100 bolt pattern.

Nice. Those should look really good. How much did they run you and where did you get them? Can't wait to see them on.

Thank you for the compliments. They ran me a little over 8 bills and change from the tirerack. You're right business those extra holes are for the 5x100 and not 4x100, :) Quick question: is the mazdaspeed suspension a little lower and litte stiffer than the 6 grand touring suspension? I had coilovers on my svt and boy whas she stiff, don't want to ruin my ride quality.

beautiful. simple but strong. i like the black/silver contrast too since it really emphasizes the wheels.

wait til your get rid of those nasty stock tires and get some nice performance ones on there; you'll never look at the car the same way again :D

now if i could just get these in hyperblack brought over from japan:
