Thumbs up Pulled the trigger on new wheels...!

Thanks again to Jon Henson @ www.driverzinc.com for his expert assistance and pricing once again (I believe this is set #5 I've purchased from him),I bought the just released Enkei Performance EV5's in a hyper-black finish with 215/45 Nitto Neogen rubber for $1107 shipped to my door...mounted/balanced/valvestems/lugnuts/centering rings and wheel locks.
Wheels are 17x7 w/45mm offset and are just a hair heavier than my stock 16x6's @ 19.4lbs vs 19.1lbs.

What do you guys think..?


Wheels were just released for sale from Enkei yesterday so I dare say I'll be among the first to have them,they are coming out of a Nevada warehouse and should be @ Jon's shop this Friday and I'll have them next week ready to bolt on....I'll post up some pics as soon as they arrive.

Please add Jon to your list of available dealers to work with,he really is a great guy and when you deal with him,he'll be on top of your order from start to finish and will always be available after the sale to insure a smooth transaction.He handles Eibach products too so my Pro-kit will be purchased from him as well.

Feel free to email him with any questions, jon@driverzinc.com

Thanks,I dig the finish.I'm generally not a fan of glossy black wheels,this hyper-black process is more of a colored tint like the smoked titanium finish on my Rushforth Superspokes,you can still see the grain in the alloy:

[QUOTE=musclecarjohn;2777812]What do you guys think..?

[QUOTE]

I do like these...

I said no thanks because I want to keep my car looking "normal". I don't want to draw any attention to myself (=bad things happen when this is done). But for the tires alone, that's not a bad deal at all.
Should have bought them and kept the tires for the winter, and sold the rims on here or something

I only looked at the top one (they were all stacked on top of each other), but the tires had TONS of tread left. I bet they're gone by now. The size, I think, 215 50 17
