K, it's getting close to that time... time to get wheels. nother 2 weeks i estimate, and for MONTHS now i have been torn between these 2 types of 17"s...

#1


or

#2


i NEED to make up my mind cuz i wanna have em b4 jan. is over. i am kinda leaning more toward #2 lately cuz one of my buddies has the 1st ones in silver and another friend is ordering them, so i wouldn't wanna look like a copycat in this small ass town of ours. lol. and w/e i get, they r GONNA be in white. they'll be going on the red civic EX in my signature pic below. sure could use some 2nd opinions. THANX! :D

yeh i think i'm gonna go with #2 the koing rated R's now. does anyone know of a brand that makes these IDENTICAL wheels for cheaper in 17"x7 white 4-lug? (like motegi makes mr7's and konig makes tantrums and they r the same wheel) i'd like to go the cheaper route if i possibly can. i dont care the name brand, as long as they look nice and r cheap. =)

most of konigs rims are a copy of some jap. rims.
like mine are the konig temper r's (no longer make), which are a copy of the volk gtn's

The TE37s and the Rated Rs are not much alike actually. Their designs are very different if you look at it from the side, not the front. The TE37s look a lot better, IMO. But you're right, they do cost an arm and a leg.

I'd go with the Rated Rs. I've seen some on sale for cheapo ... $700 17s with tyres!!

Get the Volk TE37, they're much lighter and stonger. The konig's are more for show...you get what you pay for and Volk is worth it. Just do a search for them.
