Wheels... what i'm up to.

I ordered my wheels last week. Simmons FR17s 17 x 8s with 235 kumho ultra high performance rubber..... By by 3000 bucks. Should look good on a eb2 thats lowered 3 inches. Now i know thats alot of ****ing money to spend on wheels but it should be worth it. they will be here in two weeks, and they are gunna be a long two weeks. i will post some pics asap. also fitting camber kits this weekend.... 300 bucks.

Yup I had those on my eb, I sold em, im gonna wait till the new fr19 simmons come out, and might get a set of them or 18s, 17s were just abit small for my liking. Plus the price should go down on the 18s. 19s should be out around september october.

IF YOU DONT TRY IT YOU WONT KNOW.

yeah but i dont like the price of rubber for 18/19 ich wheels. and sice the tyre doesnt flex as much they scrubb out quicker. But isnt it funny how 17's can look undersized, when having 16s used to be expensive and considered huge?

Id rather spend 3000 grand on the engine or gearbox

Unless your cars already blown then i cant argue

Actually I think it looks pretty good with the original wheels. But, the new ones will look outstanding!
