Why do you want to change?

Check out 18" M6 or some LTW5's.

dammit chris! your rims make me want to switch to 19"s!

i might consider it since i can roll on my csls for awhile and save up to get the rims and tires. but i just want some opinions on some other 18's

to be honest ive been contemplating picking up some rims and realized i wouldnt be happy with anything under 19in, id say save up and go that route because if your like me youd blow your money then wish you saved and got what you truly wanted

I think you will be much happier with some 19s like Chris' Linea Corse z2s. But if you want to switch until you can afford to go to 19s, I would recommend some 18 M6 wheels or the Miro Type 279:

M6 Wheel


MiRo Type 279

19x8.5 +38
19x9.5 +45

VMR V715's in Hyper Black w/ Stainless Steel lip sounds like it might be a good option for you if you decide to go 19".
