They aren't spectacular rims, but I really like the design. Then again, i'm biased, I just bought them for mine. They come in Monday, so I'll post pics of them on my 95 then. They're a little on the heavy side, but since I'm not looking for spectacular performance just yet.

EDIT: They're ICW Racing 213MB

Check out the Enkei GW8's man. For style those are grrrrrrreat.
For high moisture areas like Seattle, go with an 8 spoke, since they will hide the light coat of rust that accumlates on your brake calipers daily.
For low moisture areas a 6 spoke looks nice, but I'm partial to those GW8's. I'm getting a set as soon as I get the rest of the car done!

^ those rims are like, too ghetto, I would not pay close to 200 a piece just for the rims, especially when they look like that.

Re: Best 6, 7, or 8 spoked wheel?? PIcs please

theres been a lot of these threads lately... no one can tell you what you perfer or "looks good", the best thing to do is use google images instead of having people argue which rim is better

just go to each rim site and see which ones u like then google it with prelude

work
rota
konig
Enkei
Volk

Yeah I'm real happy with em. I thought about going larger, but I plan on dropping the car. Just bought a set of KYB AGX struts and skunk2 springs off of 1BadBB6 that I'll be installing soon.
