Reading Topic: Would these look good?

The only thing I have seen "Spreewells" look good on, were huge honkin' SUVs. They are "all the rage" nowadays, just another big hype up, around here, an S2000, a C5 Corvette, a Camaro Z28 all have them and a few other cars that just don't deserve an overweight wheel.

Functionality over aesthetics I say. I have mounted tires to Davins before and needless to say, full steel wheels off of big box truck weighed less than that Davin.

You don't want to transform your 6 into a pimp car, do you?

Actually, I've seen a 6 with these on. It was a yellow with sports kit. Didn't look too bad. It was 18".

But I agree with what's been said - there are nicer alloys.

Mmmmm. More rotating mass. Slap them on the 6i and see if you can get the car to peak below 100 whp on the dyno. :sarc

Then why not stick with a Civic that's all TFATF'ed out. you know.....an airplane wing, dropped to 1mm above ground, 20" rims that rub, a fart cannon tail pipe, neon lights, a big fat tach that hangs off the A-pillar, etc etc?


I mean, why buy a real car like the 6? If all you are going for is looks, then take yo' skrilla to da Hon-duh folks. bling bling with my spinnin rims yall! :sarc

Aside from the lively banter about the posted Wheel-Max alloy being gay or non-gay, what we could use is a heads up from anyone who has seen after market alloys that are comparable to the 17" alloy upgrade on the 6s that could be fit (fitted?) to the pedestrian 6i. On a related note, I understand them low-profile tires don't stand up for mileage, and would settle for a decent set of non-pimptious aftermarket alloys that would really compliment the 6. There's not much chrome on these cars; methinks an understated alloy look would better than California-lowrider-tinsel-glint. What say ye?

Agreed - those are a little to much.

About the 17" Mazda wheels - it happens sometimes that someone sells the stock wheels (often complete with tyres) here in the Buy/Sell forum. Check that place out from time to time and you might get REAL Mazda OEM wheels for your 6i!

Edit: I see there is a complete set of 17" wheels in the "OEM '03 Mazda 6s parts" thread there now!

There is a rule, if you like them then get em but if you get them you have to redo the interior of your car in leopard pattern, put hydraulics on your 6, put fuzzy dice on your mirror, and you have to wear a pimp hat with a feather whenever riding in your car.

And then you must have one of these in each one of the 4 passenger seats:
