Quoting MMCVR4:
^ looks nice! What are the specs on the wheels & tire size?



I will have to dig up the spec's. I don't remember off hand
 

+1 those look pretty good on the white car.

To the OP: The Exel's look better, but 1.5" extra inches of width tips the scales the other way. And they don't look bad.

Not to mention I think the 7" wide Exels are about .5lb heavier than the 8.5" wide SSR's. I'm going to make the decision soon, still waiting to get the other 3 wheels back from being cleaned up (they were rattle can'd black...had a body shop remove the spraypaint and clean/polish the original finish.)

I'm leaning toward keeping the SSRs and selling off the Exel 5spoke wheels.

Yeah I m really starting to like the SSR's. Plus the Exel's don't have decent center caps (they are stupid fake chrome plastic hokey things that look like a giant knockoff nut). For the same weight, and 1.5" wider wheel, obviously the SSR's are the better wheel. what it really comes down to is I think I can sell the Exel's for about $200 for the set to any DSM guy relatively quick. The SSR's in gold might be a hard sell to get the $450 I think they are really worth.

I don't know, so indecisive /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif

I'd just like to point out that the car with the Gram Lites is mine from back in the day, and it is Kensington Gray, not GREEN! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Run the goldies and drop the car down a little more.
