i cant find the wheel im looking for, they have it in only a 17' and i want it in a 18".......really sucks, that i cant find the look im going for.
i want that thin multi spoke look like the Bmw's, and German cars have..
not to copy, or think i own a 50k car, But its the look i really like, and i cant find it..

i imagine cleaning in between all the spokes will be annoying after a while

Maybe it's the wheel manufacturers that aren't making what you want. Is that the fault of tirerack? I guess it would make more sense to say that they suck for tC people that want a type of rim that they don't carry... Are you going to start a ______ sucks thread for each website that doesn't have what you have in mind?
I have no connection with them, it just seems like a stretch to be all up in their grill about this.

I like tirerack for the user reviews of different tires. That helped me by my last set of tires. I wish they had more info on the yoko s32A tires.

its not tirerack's fault. the 5x100 selection in general is sad.
tirerack has gram lights heh, i plan on getting those

personally i want somthing like the oz rally style rims... a nice lightweight 16 point wheele. IN WHITE!!! and i cant find it anywhere

I am very sorry to see we earned the status of "Sucking" just because we did not have the wheel style you are looking for! You mentioned you are looking for the type of wheels you see on BMW's and other German car's, in most cases the O.E. wheels for BMW's come from Breyton and the O.E. Mercedes wheels come from AMG, both of which manufacturer wheels exclusively for those car companies!

Never bought from Tire Rack, but I always read their helpful information in a few car forums that I have joined. It's nice to see the vendors participating in this way.
One more time...Go Roger.

www.discounttire.com is much cheaper then Tirerack for wheels or tires... They don't carry Bridgestone Potenza's but they carry stuff just as good that cost half as much...
Does anyone know where you can get a good shorty intake, like K&N or INjen for cheap?

i had to post again and say i got love for tirerack. i got my last 4 sets of tires from them.
how mental is it that i can get tires from them shipped here for less than i can buy tires here lol.
