My goal is to have new wheels on the car before the gathering at Englishtown in June.

Anyway, since I can't afford HRE's (they are sweet!), I will settle for something a little more affordable that will look good with my PPW.

What do you guys think of these?

Also does anyone know if the Tire Pressure system is transferable, if not my stock rims must stay!!

So what have you decided on or are you still looking? I keep going back to the ADR's in hyperblack.

Are those Enkeis going to be for show? What size are you thinking of getting?

I'm going to stick with 18's but go wider, just like the Nismo wheels.

still looking - the ADR is nice but I think I want gun metal or hyper black, also found some 5zigens that are nice too.

I have the stock rims, but want to get some dimension/depth in the wheel well without going bankrupt. trying to keep the ppw and aluminum look going.

thanks for the suggestions, I wish I knew someone local that I could see them live.

Well, when I finally get mine this spring, I'll post pics. I have a PPW and don't want anything too dark. I also have to watch the $$$ on wheels. I think anything under $1k for wheels is a good deal. It's the tires that's going to kill me.

I read that 18's are the way to go for track performance. Other pros to 18's are better handling, easier on tires, lighter, and not too outrageous (I like the lower profile than 19's or 20's). Obviously, since money is an issue, I won't be buying any Volks or HRE's, so ADR's seem to be calling my name.

How about these? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=43959

I have seem writeups or how-tos on transferring the bands onto new wheels.  You have to do most of the work.

i got a quick question about those ADR rims..i clicked on the 19" rims and saw the same ones. the sizes are: 19x8.5front and 19x9.5 rear with a 35mm offset for both front and rear. with that 35mm off set for front and rear, will those rims fit flush with the fender? in example not be tucked in or be sticking out? thanks..

I seem to recall several people with that setup and no complaints. I think someone actually took pics to prove how flush the tire/wheel combo is within the well. The OEM offset is about 33 mm. Don't know if that helps or not.

You can keep your factory TPS on aftermarket rims.

Here is a pic of the sensor mounted on a new rim.

go with Enkei RPF1s super light, big sizes and nice low offset to set it out against the fender, besides like half the price of TE37s
