hey so i am buying wheels like tomorrow probably and want everyones opinion. i work at discount tire so i get a good deal. right now i am stuck because my friend has some 19x7.5 motegi's with brand new tires on front 225 45's and needs new on rear i would put 265 40's on the rear he had them on his 700hp IS300 for a while with 245's. tires will cost me just over 300 and he is selling me them for 500$ total 800-850$

observe here in gloss black, offset is 45mm

the other option i was considering was gunmetal MB weapons probably 17x7 in the front and 17x9 in the rear with 225's front and 275's rear with a 38mm offset in front and a 45 offset in the rear total price for these costs me just below 1000$

observe wheels in gunmetal here

i have always loved the look of the motegi's but i don't know if 19's are just too big and tires are a lot more $$
so what do you guys think?

how bout anything BUT a motegi... motegi wheels suck and they are entirely too heavy, same with anything ADR.

and if youre going to spend good money on wheels, you better NOT buy anthing thats LESS than 8" wide. if you cant put a 255 tire on it, you are wasting your time. also, try not to get a +50 offest wheel unless you WANT it to sit inside your wheel well.

............. and needs new on rear i would put 265 40's on the rear
265/40/19's will not fit on the rear, you need 30 series to run a 19" wheel.......................

yeah i thought 40's might clear but prolly not.... the 19's are pretty much out of the picture too big and heavy....... so after looking at option 2 and 3 in person today i am prolly going with option 3 with 17x9 with 275 40's with falken RT 615's but i was told i will have to roll in my wheel well allittle to fit them. do you guys think i will have to? has anyone done that on their car
