^^^First one is ADV.1, and second one is SSR, correct? If so...

First ones are DPE's, second ones are the RWB Sp1's.

**** VAD for not only being shady, but also for making a shitty copy of RWB's design (I know there have been plenty of widebody pkors pre-rwb)

btw, gotta love Hipstergram

Ok so they're SSRs. And I still say they're better than the DPEs

Figured i'd ask in here since I don't feel like making a thread about it. Car I bought came with a set of OEM CSL wheels, all 4 seem to have a bit of curb rash from the previous owner :/

anyone know what a set of those with wheels would go for if I put em up for sale? (Ballpark would help)

I was going to buy a set a month ago for $1200 with a little bit of a rash. Here you will get Low balled, so try craigslist or Ebay if your not willing to sell them cheap. I dont know why they are so cheap, if they are top notch wheels.

Some of you may remember my friend's S2000 I posted a picture of a few months ago. Well it's finally done (for the most part) and it just got a feature on Stance Nation. I have no idea how he drives it around like this in our area because the roads are absolutely terrible.

Varrstoen 2.2.1's (189.5 et12 wrapped in 225/35/18 front and 1810.5 et15 wrapped in 235/35/18 rear)

Keep in mind that the S2000 is a very small car. Maybe it's deceiving in that picture but the front bumper is about an inch from the ground.
