    Cool Rims to fit VR-4

    I'm just tired of the stockies and I had to sell my last set of rims to help pay for my last semester of college (took a little longer than I expected). I'd like a set of 18's or 19's, must be at least stock width or up to 9". If I could find a set, I'd go with the ADR Kasai's like 3000gtpro has, but they've been discontinued for a while now and they're becoming extremely rare. I will definitely consider different styles, just stating my preference.

    I have a set of 18" rims for sale. Here are some pics, including the wheels on both my white 95 and my wife's pear yellow 95:













    The tires are really not any good, so I'd remove them before shipping. These rims are not perfect. And the fronts will require a 1/4" spacer. But I have another set of these rims on my 600+AWHP 95 VR4 with the spacers and have no issues with them. I may be able to round up a set of "ET" lugs for use with the spacer. These lugs extend through the spacer to provide the same (or greater) thread engagement than the stock set up.

    sweet. can't believe i already got a reply. Those don't look like they're in too bad of shape. I'm not worried if i need to use spacers. I mean, I'd rather not, but it's not the end of the world if I need to. What's the width on those bad boys? Can you pm me a price? and I'll mull it over for a couple days. Hell, I may even just buy em as an inter-rim set (pun anyone? lol).

    We have a set of these at the shop, that we can install new tires on for you. We're refinishing the wheels (some curb rash we're going to take care of, etc), so, we can even paint them any color you want (black, silver, gunmetal, etc)








    (how they would look on your car, in gunmetal)

    We're painting them anyway, so, it won't cost any more for any specific color. We're painting our truck a gunmetal color, so, we could just use some of that paint for the wheels, we have black and silver here in stock too.

    It depends more on what kind of tire you want. let me know what kind of tire you're looking for (snow, all season, blah blah, any brand in particular you want, type of tread pattern, etc), and I'll get you pricing for the whole shebang.

    If you need tires to go with a set of 19's someone might sell you look here:

    Just a word of advice, I bought tires from them and they where 5 years old already according to the manufacture date stamp.
