ok, so the time has FINALLY come to purchase my wheel/tire combo :lol: . i had it all figured out for a long time now, i'd get silver flik wasps from edgeracing..... but i just checked the website today and now these nice falkens are on sale, they went from 225/wheel down to 170/wheel, and all of a sudden i like those.... i've always wanted a dished look five spoke wheel. am i just being indecisive or are these wheels nice and should i get them instead of the fliks?? here's a link to both wheels:

get the fliks. don't second guess yourself. get what you've been wanting for a while, you'll be happier with them in the long run. you didnt want them for so long for no reason.

werd!

Besides if you want a dished 5 spoke, you need to look at ACE ZEUS!

ya see, i have wanted a dish five spoke for a long time, it's just that i could never find one that was affordable and well built, and i think falkens have a prety good rep. so technically that's what i've wanted all along. but then again i just started liking a mesh style wheel. i guess everyone goes through this. it's so easy to be indecisive when you're about to blow 700+ on wheels. besides, i think those ace wheels are a liiittle out of my price range, for the 18s anyway, besides, for 5x112 it seems they only offer the 18x8.5, which i think i'd have rubbing problems with when i drop my car with the neuspeed sports.

You're living my story.
I've pretty much decided on ADR M-Sports in HyperBlack... if that helps any.
