Normally I like to keep quiet, but I owe wings west a promotion for giving me a free painted spoiler.

I had the kit installed and painted by them with a free spoiler a month ago (I actually drove up to Los Angeles for this).I didnt even know they were going to give it to me.

The rims are 14lbs each and are chrome and they are 1 piece forged. I can and actually have picked up one rim with just two fingers without any problem.
They are made by Centerline Wheels are are very very cheap.

The tires are Toyo T1's with skunk2 coilovers (although I need to lower it some more). the specs are 225/40 R18 at 22lbs per tire.

The front mesh metal grill was installed by me and even have PIAA 1100X.

My next exterior upgrade is chromed tail lights to match the chromed wheels and mesh grill. Then, I would like to paint the side mirror holding blue.

peace out,
j

Very sweet! I really like the Centerline wheels. How much were they? Centerline is a very highly respected company in the domestic speed market, so I'm sure they are very good quality. Where did you pick them up? Car looks very tight.

Yes they are 14lbs each

Kion,

Yes they are 14 lbs each. the tires are heavier than the rims, but they are very very sturdy.

canuck,
if you buy from a vendor, maybe $1000 unpainted with no spoiler, but wings west gave a promotional deal on the painted and installed kit with spoiler.

kilo,

you can get the entire wheel/rim package at discount tires or tires.com
the price will vary, but I but each rim cost me $250. Although not cheap overall, they are cheaper than most rims.
I would have bought the volk racing av3's but these are 31lbs.
I like the RH CP035R's but these are 21lbs and are way to expensive.
VOlks and RH should cost you from 300 to 500 dollars per rim (no tire).
I also got a good deal on the tires.

type s in la,
yes they are 18x7.

Surprise: the 19inch rims weigh 14.5lbs

Nocturnal,
Yes you can take the emblem off. a really small allen wrench will do the job,
Now you just need to fill in the divit left by the chrome emblem plate.

I am NOT a huge fan of the wing myself.
I would like the JDM wing because it is clean and more smooth and rounded, but WW said this is a replica of that wing (with there logo).
And it was free, so I can't complain...

Brillo,

much props to you for your wing. A lot of people don't like ww kit or they may not like a gt wing on an rsx. But I say get whatever you want becuase you want it. Not because some one else tells you to do otherwise.

c ya,
J
