finally made a wheel decision

after much debate on this thread:

http://www.houston-imports.com/forum...=wheel+dilemma

I have decided on my wheels.

i was torn between the Beyern Mesh and the Stern ST-7, so I nutted up and made my decision:

Stern ST-7 in Hyper Black 18x8.5







cant wait to get them in!

i'll be sure to post up pics when they're on

It's nice, I just don't like how it bulges out. Maybe on the car it will look better.

hmmm....to each his own indeed....i actually like the way it bulges out in the center and the rim kinda recesses behind it...

anyways, i'm going through need4speed motorsports

the clincher for me was the price tag ---- $1320 for the entire package with 235/40/18 Falkens shipped to my doorstep

What offset did you end up with? If you can, take some pics from the top of the fender and down the side as opposed to the standard side shot...I wanna see some lip.
