This is what I was thinking. No offense or anything. But seems like you have an extremely nice build going on, why ruin it with cheap tires and rims. Might as well invest in some legit light weight wheels. That's my two cents but who knows maybe he just has them on temporarily until he can afford legit rims guys.

I don't see the problem with XXR wheels, not like he's trying to play them off as other wheels.. Pretty nice car, though I would never buy a built car already, no fun in that. But definitely has potential. Take care of it

i think what they mean is that the car has a lot of potential and should have better wheels on it than cheap xxr, especially because its being driven.

I wanted BBS wheels, but no cash for $600 per wheel. I am currently spending my money building up my Trailblazer SS. I plan on getting some form of a drag radial. I like M/T, but I am not seeing any ET streets in the size I need. Car will not hook in 1 or 2 with these crappy tires. Will spin in high boost in third.

I swear I've seen this RSX being tossed around here...

It seems like people keep selling the car after a while.

My friend traded his 2005 STI and cash for this car in September. He picked this car up from the original owner that built the car. I traded my STI to my friend. He wanted a STI real bad. I am looking to sell this car so I can pay off the rest of my Trailblazer SS. I plan on buying a GT500 mid summer.
