I went with Venomrex VR 602 in Tungsten Graphite. Kept the stock tires.
Just got my new setup installed today - FUGGIN STOKED.
The wheels are Motegi MR150 Trailites in Bronze, 17" x 8.5" with 0mm offset. They only weight 24.5 lbs each. The tires are 35/12.50/17 BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2's.
It get's dark wayyy to early nowadays, so here's my shot from the drive home:
I quite like the Trailites and they are high on the list for my next wheels. Judging by the price though, they can't possibly be forged, can they?
I'm pretty dang sure they are -- but if course, now that I've said it, I can only find people on forums saying they're forged because motegi's site only provides minimal info.
You're probably right though, given the price, I think they're probably cast now that I've done some searching. I emailed motegi to see if they can confirm. I'll edit my post for now - thanks!
Believe they are yes. Think almost all OE wheels are made there now, and most all aftermarket too.
Either way, great looking wheels, nice weight and a pretty good price.
Thanks - I agree!
They got back to me this afternoon - they're cast.
Here's my new set up.
looks killer, what tire and wheel combo?
