you will be spending some serious mollah on your wheels AM. so your eyes should approve of the design. and am sure you will find the one that you'll love.

There is a silver 3.5 V6 here in hyderabad running 245/40R18 black konig rims with dunlop tires.Looks really good on the car.So if you are looking at 18's you should consider those wheel specs.
Cheers

I like twilight try on the black also. Hotswap too much in the face IMHO

sir haven't got a quote from konig yet but the rays people were fast ...sent me a pic of the rim they got in stock its 99B ggames ( pic attached) theyre for 1.1 L forged rims . "Wheel is under 4 kgs, RCF equivalent to forge wheel strenght. Very little rolling resistance for better grip,drivability and performance."
kinda confused about this one because its nice looking but a comparatively costlier than what else is available in the market .

Rays is straight into professional track racer territory. They are all about being light and strong with very little into looks. If you can afford it, nothing like them.

Only OZ/Enkei/BBS please.
BBS preferred. Extremely nice build quality (they have served my professor/mentor's Accord V6 for more than 3Lac kms)

If you can afford Rays.Nothing like it.The Rays name is enough to make a statement.No blingy chrome alloy can come even close.

"If you can afford it ; nothing like it" - RAYS ---Nice caption.

Adding to the conversation, All mugen wheels, trd, nismo come from rays foundry. Be it Nissan 350z, or honda s2000 oems come from rays.
