After some inspiration from mdtoney, and prodding to puchase
by Seattlereign- I went for it and finally installed my new
AT Italia Flash Sports 18x8's today...(sigh of relief). Damn,
I love 'em. What do you guys think?





All opinions welcome! :)

Same tires I have, albeit a tad stretched out on my 8.5 inch wide wheels (*GLOAT*). Do you have an AIM screenname? It'd be very helpful, I'm trying to talk to RI CB5ers, I've got some ideas *grin*. My SN is of course Wapptor, and I'm around for now.

Funny you ask.
They were listed on ebay. I decided not to bid,
but instead email the guy. It turned out he lived a town
away- (after I had been searching for these wheels for
months...!) So, I met him and lowballed his asking price.
He took it, and well,....here I am. The right rear has about
a 1/4 inch of curb rash...that's it. Otherwise they are pristine.

Thanks. Glad you dig 'em.

I'm glad I could be an inspiration. Those wheels look damn nice on your car!! This is the first time I've seen the sport's... Seattlereign wanted those wheels REALLY bad. The darker finish looks perfect with the color of your car. :thumbup:

Those look freeking schweeeet! Now if I could just get a pic of both you and mdtoney's variants together.... that would be the icing on the cake. Any plans to head out west soon....? :lol:
Good job on getting those wheels, you really made the right choice. The colors work so well together along with the design of the wheels. Very Nice! :bow: :thumbup:

Very good choice

1. love the two piece construction ( I have a thing for modular wheels)
2. love the color coordination
3. I am tripping off the HMC finish on the centers and stainless lips ( chrome :puke: )

I saw those on a b5.5 in 19inch on the cardomain website but the 18 look more sensible.
