    Help me decide

    ok - had the car nearly a week - absolutley love it. It need new wheels as although the S-spoke wheels it came with are lovely looking - they weigh about half a ton each! - well seems like it anyway.

    I need to reduce my unsrung weight so new wheels are in order. I'm trying not to stray too far from the factory look - just want to enhance it. Will be sticking with 17"

    please help

    1 - O.Z Tribe Evo - c£750inc Tyres



    or

    2 - Image RM2 Custom split rims - c£1500inc tyres

    Me run tings.... not tings run me!

    how wide are the RM2s going to be? If they're going to be wide with a decent dish/rim, i'd pick them. If not Tribes get my vote out of those 2.

    out of those two: O.Z Tribe Evo
    EDIT: I think they'd suit the colour(s) of your car better
