Csa Edge Rims

i went out mag wheel shopping today and from the VAST range we so lucky e series owners have i concluded that i think the csa edge is a nice not so over the top rim. i didnt like it at all once shown in the catalogue but once up against the car it looked quite nice. the one that was put against the car was the one with the black insert (i think its platinum). looked nice as my car is cardinal red with the standard grey body moulds with black inserts in them. my question is what do you guys think of these rims on an eb?? and should i go the silver or the platinum on the inside. id love to see these rims on a car if anyone has any. thanks guys!

Well, considering most CSA designs are about 10 years behind, they'd look perfect on an EB! Seriously! I've seen them on an AU and they look sh*thouse.

Re: Csa Edge Rims

Well, that's just my personal professional opinion. These people don't even do a single 19" or 18x9 wheel.

MrPlow is right... compared to some other companies...

CSA has dropped the ball :(

May I ask how you come to be a professional? Its a pretty narrow minded view to say that a company is crap just because they dont make certain sizes.

Also, what do I want with a 18+ size wheel? There is no way i hell im paying 260+ per tyre; what a joke.

17' is big enough. And we are talking an e-series here so the options are VERY limited.

Im not going to be a sheep and get some crappy EL XR6/8 wheels, been there and done that and it sucks. Ill drive on stockies before going factory again :/

Well, a professional would be someone who works in the industry, which I do. I started in wholesale and I am currently working in retail a tyreshop assistant manager, until March when I will be assigned a store to run.

You are picking on one thing I said, which is twisting the fact to suit you. I said a few other things, so you may want to re-read my posts.

As for 18"+ wheels, well, CSA don't cater only for you, do they? A few years back, 18s were in, and 19s were out of reach for most people. Your garden variety SS comes with 18" wheels as standard, HSVs run 19s as does the GT-P. I've run two sets of 19s on my Falcon, and my current rims are 9" wide at the back. Just check the forums and you'll notice a lot of people running wider rims on the back, and 19x9/9.5 rims are not uncommon either these days.

True, there isn't much out there for pre-AU cars, but that still doesn't change the fact that CSA designs are OLD. Two of their new designs, Shift and Blast, look like something Advanti or even Speedy would have done 5+ years ago. Sure the Gladiator and Dominator look good, but two styles don't make a range. They're becoming a bit like Performance Wheels, and that's NOT a good thing.

The market is changing and they are not keeping up with it.

Hey, I respect that your entitled to your opinion......but working in the industry does not make you a professional.

It just makes you someone who works in the industry.

That's not to say your wrong about CSA

Assistant manager heh. I remember when you were on out of work bum getting banned from the forums and I still reckon your AU was at it's best without the bodykit and with the AU1 XR 17". But that just an opinion too.

Re: Csa Edge Rims

Raptor, I was never a bum! hehe Just between jobs. The longest I've spent in the jobmarket was 3 months because I wanted to get into the industry that I'm in now.

As for my AU, yeah, it looked good back then. I think I'm over the Jap-style front bumper.

Anyway, getting off topic...

Re: Csa Edge Rims

Raptor retracts the "... out of work bum ..." comment and good on you for getting into the industry you wanted. From my experience it could do with some people that know what's they're talking about and want to be working there.

Since when have you worried about hijacking threads? Lol
