Question OMG HELP!! I am buying new wheels!!

Hey all... well, my tires are so dangerous.
I started working again and with the 30 mile drive back and forth, I'm sure to have a blowout any day now. I got some extra cash from disability and decided NOW is the perfect time for me to get a new package. Since my low profile tires are a little over 100 each, and I want new wheels anyways (gunmetal with pol. lip ) I decided to just see about WheelMax's packages.


http://www.wheelmax.com/Specials/specials.html


I'm diggin the NEX-O P-6 http://www.wheelmax.com/Wheels/nexo/p6hs.gif

....and I always thought these were interesting (but kinda cheap looking in silver, and the gunmetal pic doesn't show up so here's the silver version anyways. http://www.wheelmax.com/Wheels/exel/h60.gif

Please if you have time, go there and tell me what gunmetal ones you think are cool.

And if you have any input on WheelMax (if you recommend or don't) please let me know.

I wanna make a purchase sometime next week so please help!

only thing that concerns me is that i don't see those guys on their focus page. look here:

http://www.wheelmax.com/Wheels/Cars/focus.htm

gunmetal with a polished lip? i guess i wouldn't be too upset if you were to buy a set of wheels like mine. Konig Holes. come in the right bolt pattern, 45mm offset, and are light weight. don't cost that much either. check them out here:

I have and didn't see too much... I'm really liking WheelMax's deals.

My budget is about 600-700 too btw.

Most people like wheelmax and haven't had any major issues. Their wheels seem to be good quality.
The only thing bad thing or a drawback with them is that you don't know what kind of tires you will get with them. Not sure if that's a concern for you.

Also, does Wheelmax give you the lugs for the wheels or do you need to purchase them seperately ?

from my knowledge you receive lugs but you will have to purchase the hubcentric rings.

Well, anything is an impovement on my tires now.... they are all bubbly with slits in the bubbles. Ooopsies.

I have Falkens.

When I purchase, I will call them and ask what tires and such. I'm pretty bitchy about customer service and getting a good quality product sometimes... lol

Thanks for the Focus Wheels link too, Whiteboyslo....

The Exel - M-6 in gunmetal are pretty nice too eh? So are some other Exels... hmmm???

After looking at more of those Exels... I really like em. Ugh.. so confused.

More input please!
