Definitely! But I already have lightweight 18s on mine. Trust me, they make a big difference. If I get a whole new set of wheels, it'll definitely be some 20s for the "show" factor.

Car looks awesome! Also being a college student my build is "slow and steady".

Keep up the good work.

I'll buy your 18s if you ever decide to get some 20s.

Sorry, these 18s will never be up for sale
Will be going with some better tires soon for some road course racing my uncle wants to get into. Should be fun.

If you're interested though, I'm sure I could find you a cheap set if you wanted.

Thanks. I'm still debating if I want 18s or 20s. I like the performance of 18" wheels, but I love the look of 20s. I might just end up buying some lighter 20s to be honest.

Honestly, that's what I'd do. Only reason I went with the 1LT wheels is because at the time, my tires were brand new and it seemed a waste to replace them. Plus I didn't have the funds for wheels and tires When I decide to replace both, I'll be going with light 20s as well. And keep the 18s with better tires for the track.

I was in the same situation as you, but my itch for some 20s grew bigger everyday. I ended up buying my RS wheels from some dude on craigslist for $500. They had 10miles on them haha. I've been thinking either some TSW or ZL1 factory reproductions. TSW are probably a tad bit lighter, but they're $300 more. First world problems *sigh* And yes, keep those 18s for the track and kick some butt.

That's a great deal you got! Depending on what you're going to be using the wheels for and the weight difference, I wouldn't hesitate spending the $300 if it was worth it. But it'd also depend on which wheel I like most as well.

I've barely just now started to consider replacing my wheels. I guess because I had brand new tires and after lowering the car, the 18" wheels with the beefy sidewall just look plain aggressive to me

I agree. I would really like some 18" Forgestars or TSW, but they cost an arm or leg. Plus I would also have to buy some tires. BUT DAMN THIS LOOKS HOT.

BTW, who does this car belong to? I might pay them a visit. Hopefully they have wheel locks. jk

That's Dangeruss's car. He's a member on here. I think he used to have those. Don't know if he still does or not. They're his drag wheels.

Pretty clean looking car. I'm going to get a heritage grill for my car. Would you be interested in a stock grill by any chance?

Actually, yes I would. How much are you letting it go for? I'm looking for an extra to try to paint gloss black.
