    I always loved the look of 5 spoke rims. It's hard to beat that look for me.

    After looking through hundreds of photos, I have come to the realization that the stock 21" turbine is a pretty sweet looking wheel and in my opinion better than most aftermarket alternatives.

    Agreed, I have also not yet seen better looking wheels.

    Thought the chromed slipstreams were the best wheels I had seen on a brown s until I put the arachnids on.

    It's a good thing that we do not all have the same taste otherwise we would all be driving the same car....

    Main reasons I got the Arachnids over the 21" Turbines were that they were lighter, better economy, and less likely to sustain damage (stronger). Otherwise, I would have been fine with the Turbines and could have saved myself over a grand.

    I suppose another benefit to the arachnids are that they are not as commonly seen, yet still a stock wheel.

    New owner here looking to add a set of wheels. Came across this set of Road Force Rf15 but could not find much info. They look good however I am not familiar with this brand. Anyone ever heard of or experienced Road Force Wheels? Considering a staggered set of 21x9 and 21x10.5. Would like to hear some opinions. They are cast alloy, 28mm front offset, 40mm rear offset about 40lbs for the 21"

    If you can afford forged wheels that is the way to go. Reducing wheel weight helps the ride as well as handling.
