    Thought I'd share a few pics of how the car turned out. Asanti rims customized their DA-174 model to fit the car. Rims: 10.5 X 22 rear / 8.5 X 22 front. Rubber: Pirelli P-Zero's.

    not feeling it, i think thats something you would do to the car in a video game, not actually do it in real life g0mZl.png


    it doesn't look completely horrible but i dont think that rim style suits the car at all, the stock 21" rims look best imo

    The wheels look great. How did the change affect your handling and ride?

    Hello Jack,

    The ride is a little stiffer as expected with the 22" rims however the handling feels slightly better with a little more rubber on the road.

    Actually looks pretty clean, any idea what offset they are running? I think they could have been slightly more aggressive on the offsets IMHO but still looks pretty nice!

    Looks nice. It's a personal preference of course. Glad you like them. The 21" rims are hard enough to not curb though.

    I think it looks very nice....hoping to do somewhat similar setup when my car arrives...hmm, why only 8.5" on front....won't 9" fit?....I ask cause mines 9" in the front and I believe others have done the same, no?
