    Not everyone can afford real wheels. :hiding:

    I didn't know they made fake XXR's.

    Doubt it's sarcasm.

    Nevermind this post. I started rambling with intent at poking fun of @bootyluvr and his chivalry.

    100% authentic real XXRs. Made of the finest materials, at feather weight at 25lbs a piece.

    Taking time to save up for quality parts other than buying random little parts here and there that takes the same amount of time. When I was younger around 1998 I saved up for two years to buy 5 ZIGEN FNO1RC's 15x6 and Advan A032-Rs 205 50 15. If you want to do something right you should from the start period. Building a strong foundation from the ground up is the best way to have balance with your car. Regardless of the time it takes don't ever take short cuts and leave the excuses for the kids

    I don't autocross, but it will help in that situation by promoting more grip up front and allowing the car to rotate, assuming you're running a reverse staggered setup. The wheel is a 17x9 +30 et. +35 was very close with the 255 tire, so I jumped to a lower offset to dial in more negative camber.

    Correct. I had issues with the front end plowing when I was still running a 235 square setup. Swapped over to a staggered 255/225, and the car is more willing to rotate.
    It isn't cosmetic for me, however when I see a car that is setup to perform, it makes me happy. A lot of companies don't offer the sizing I want in the same wheel. Take for example the Volk RE30. As of right now, you can buy a 17x8 +35, but you can't find a 17x9 +22, which is ideally what I want to run. Plus you run into the issue of clearance for brake packaging. Whatever floats people's boat, I guess?

    Tires look pretty low profile to me. Do you know the specs?
