I'm generally not a fan of these threads but I want some opinions on which rims you like for my car. I'm not gauranteeing I will go with the majority because I have my favorite but I have it narrowed down to these two.

Here's my car.


Here's the first set. They are Enkeis.


The second set. Motegis

Buy 2 of each and mount the sets on opposite sides of the car. That way when you get tired of looking at one set of rims you can park the car so you see the other side until you get tired of looking at that side then you can park the car so you see the other side until you get tired of looking at that side then you can park the car so you see the other side until you get tired of looking at that side then you can.......

I guess I'm the lone voter...lol. I like the look of the motegis a lot better. I've always been a sucker for the beadlock imitations. How much do they cost?

i like the motegis alot... almost got a set too... but i think they would look better in black on your car.... both sets look like a gun metal maybe...

if your going the color shown go with the first set if your going gloss black go with the second set..

they are not a beadlock imitation they are a 3 peice rim or imitation of it.

well rims with the bolt pattern (most are imtation and not real) if they are a true 3 peice wheel they are made of multiple parts... held together by the bolts... the bolts are actually holding the face of the rim to the rest of it.

here is an image that should better help you...



and beadlocks more commonly used on offroad/mud rims actually hold the lip/edge of the tire in so you can change the tires with out a mounting machine

no a three piece is how the rim is made and assembled... a beadlock is made to hold the bead of the tire on..... you actually never disassemble a 3 piece but you do a beadlock.... like i said a3 piece is how the rim is built...

and you can buy fake versions of both... but the motegi is a 3 piece look alike

AAAAAH! I must've been posting while you were posting the second part of your second post.

Thanks for clearing that up. Those probably get pretty expensive....

I like the teg's cause I have a set of them and I love them. They wear really well and they are pretty good quality.
