Default Help me pick my wheels!

Ok guys i have narrowed it down to 2 reasonably priced high polished aluminum wheels. I don't quite know the lip sizing yet but i do know it has a deep rolled lip, they have to get back to me regarding offset etc. Let me know what you think. Which one!? These would be going on my 02 t/a btw. Pics at http://www.cardomain.com/id/qwiktends

Pentia:


GT Sport. Rivits are optional:

Yeah i am definitly leaning towards the GT sports, i THINK these are them on this early SS probably 15's or 16's because they don't look too big. I will probably be going with a 17/18 combo and that is 1750 plus s/h and tax if u live in CA. If you want the rivits its an aditional 150.00 apparently. Looking at 2000 shipped probably i didn't inquire about s/h prices. Plus than i am gonna need 2 new tires, probably 315's so thats another 600 or so. Yikes almost 3 grand already.

Well, I did some research and found out that they were made by I-Forged. But I don't see any 17x11 sizes!! or 17x9's!! WTF! They look so damn nice and they don't come in that common combo???!!

Pentias IMO. Those GT's flat 5-spoke design is just boring to me - especially for a curvy T/A.

well they are not known as the "iforged" wheels, nor is the company. They are from the www.introwheels.com website and use that name...

They are still the same damn company. Intro wheels usually go for a good bit less since they are not multipiece wheels.

Our wheels are 2-piece wheels, whereas iForged has 2-piece and 3-piece wheels. Intro and iForged are seperately owned, but iForged is located in our building and we build 100% of the wheels that they sell.
