    18" 5 star with a decent lip? decent price?

    Anyone know of a decent 18" rim like the CCW 550 that isnt going to cost me an arm and a leg? I'd like a smooth 5 star with the bigest lip possible...just think that look is mean! I also like the sportmax 962's but would want them all chrome or polished. Any help would be great!

    thanks blue28...there are some wheels there that could fit the bill. It seems that a fat lip on a polished rim is going to be expensive! Has anyone seen in person a rim in the "hyper silver" powdercoat?

    I really like those, but they might be too narrow. The 18's only come in a 9" width and I was hoping to do a 9" in the front and a 10" in the back. Have you ever seen hyper silver in person? Does it look like a polished rim? Thanks for all your help. jb

    Thumbs up

    IMO, The Petrol Octane probably the best looking one I've came across!
    Plus you can get it in a 9.5" wide wheel, but it cost more than some of the other wheels.


    Good luck with choosing !

    That's my ride with the Imagine's. I run 275/30/19's on all four corners. Same width as stock so I don't know why it would be too narrow. And it's actually called hyperblack,hypersilver is alittle lighter. It does not look like a polished wheel does. The lip is polished stainless..clearcoated. 3.25'' lip. Hope this helps. I am VERY pleased with these wheels.

    im in the same boat you are. been looking at a lot of wheels but cant seem to find anything to pull the trigger on. i LOVE the ccw's but cant afford $3k on just wheels. i also want at least a 10" rim in the rear so i can run at least a 305 back there.

    my car is red, and personally i dont care for black rims on a red car, too ying and yang for me. a gunmetal looks good, but i dont want to buy anything until i see it on the car. i dont want to drop $2k on rims and tires if im not in love with them

    thanks...for some reason, when i opened the page this time, your previous pics showed up. those rims look fantastic on your car! i have a red ss convertible so i might go with the silver. Anyone have the hyper silver version of these on their car? Seth, what lowering kit are you running? Again, your car is hot...only way it could be better is if it was a drop top

    Thanks bro! It's the Eibach pro kit. I'm gonna have to disagree on the vert, I don't like the trunk on the vert.

    If you like. Try this http://tirefactory.com/virtualwheels.cfm. I think you can test some of sportsmax rims with your model. That is a virtual simulator.
