    What do you guys think???? New wheels!!! both are +/- 0

    Hey guys wanted to get some opinions on a possible new setup. LMK what you think. I've never, ever been torn between two wheels before in my life. So I need some help on this one.

    My plans are also to lower the car more and flare the fenders 5mm/at least an inch.

    I prefer the 15 x 7's.... but they're just Watanabe copies aren't they?

    What you really need is bumpers from any other country than the US

    yeah just watt copies.....I have other cars to play with so I'm not really worried about the name brands for this ride, at least not yet. Just want a good looking daily.

    ...also already have the jdm zenki bumpers front & rear, if you've never crossed my car's journal, they are posted there. I just have chosen not to install them yet. I don't have the brackets or signal lights.

    LOL they are two diff. styles thats to hardcore dorifto for me. I think I'm diggin the 15x8's though. I can picture how nice they'll look once the bumpers on an dthe fenders have been flared.

    I'd go the 7's for practicality. I've got 8's on mine and it scrubs even with the guards lipped. Putting camber tops in to eliminate the problem. But realistically you'll only run 195's on either set so just grab the 7's

    195/50's on 15x8 0's will only need rolled guards to sit flush with some camber dialed in at the front.
