View Full Version : Finally...new wheels on -->

Well after waiting I dunno how freakin long, my new wheels arrived last week and were put on last Friday...but due to it freakin raining EVERY damn day since, I was just able to take a few pics finally Saturday after washing my car.

These are "temporary" pics haha, I took them quickly just to finally get some. I planned on taking better ones Sunday, but of course it freakin rained again Saturday nite and my car got dirty again :x

Also these wheels will most likely get replaced next Summer when more choices are available. I don't have a picture of it yet, but the brake caliper comes extremely close to the wheel :shock: so close I was afraid it was going to rub...but it just clears it, whew.

Anyways, they are 18" Axis Crux wheels and I will update this thread when I'm able to get better pics.

Oh and btw, yeah they are ONLY 18s cuz I needed to use my stock tires as I can't afford new tires right now, especially when my team is being sponsored by a tire company and we should be receiving our tires soon anyhow. I'm not complaining, even tho I do think the tires look too fat for the wheels, but considering my car isn't lowered yet, it would look hella 4x4.

I just can't seem to get used to black rims. For some reason they just never seem to look right to me. Maybe they remind me of wheels whose hubcaps fell off or something? :? They look like nice wheels though! :lol:

I hear ya - Spent all saturday afternoon washing/waxing/detailing, then it goes and rains. damn the rain.

Also, nice wheels - too bad you didn't go bigger though. Maybe next summer when more wheel choices and tires from your sponsor :)

Yeah I originally planned on 19s. But like I said, these will most likely be temporary considering every Spring I bought new wheels for my Accord lol.

Yeah its not cheap, but usually doesn't cost me too much when I sell my other wheels first.

I would have hit 3000 posts by now but they keep getting deleted :coupe:

Are they the same 7.5 wide as the stock rims?

But the question still stands.

What I need to know Nikki is what you use to wash and polish that thing? I need to get me some of that shit!

did you ever get the tint done? or lower her?

Nikki
07-11-2006, 11:14 AM
Tint has been done. Its not dark tho...I only went with 35% cuz of the harassment I received in the Accord having 20%.

Lowered soon...probably by the end of the month!

Nikki, what springs are you going with, CMS? :smoke:

^^ Cool! Im sure you seen me say before, i just love the blacked out look on vehicles, cant wait to see pics of your 6er after you lower it :twisted:

The G6 is a very simple and clean design and I think those rims are way too busy for the car. Up close the wheels steal all the attention from the car and from far away they would probably disappear, especially on a black car. But what do I know, I'm keeping my stock 17" cast aluminums.

5 spokes always look good but the spoke is a little to bulky for my taste but don't get me wrong it looks good. :woot: :woot:

Nikki
07-13-2006, 06:13 AM
These wheels are just "temporary" for me anyway. At the time I had like 3 choices of the style I was looking for and these were the best out of the 3.

Honestly, pictures don't do them any justice...they look much better on the car in person.

Daniel

I am on NIkki side! Those are the shizznet! LOL
Seriously though I just saw the new avatar and saw your car domain page!!!! :woot: I AM IN LOVE.........I have similar rims and it is true that in person wow.
Great job on the headlight overlays it took me a while to do mine but they turned out perfect great job.

18 x 7.5

Nikki, The rims look GREAT. :P

Rims are next for me, and I think black will look really good on my silver coupe...

You said that these 18x7.5's just cleared the brakes ??? I want the same size :wink:

When I've been looking at TireRack.com they say that 18x7.5 and 18x8, and 18x8.5's will fit our cars??? Would you or anyone else be worried about rims wider than 7.5 inches ?

Normally Im not a fan of black rims...but I think they look great with that car. Seriously.

One thing I do think you should consider is the Knight Rider swoosh light on the hood ;) I know its cheasy...but it would be badass. The next step after that would be the cut apart steering wheel. :)

Edit: Im just kidding btw. The rims look great though.

It depends on the offset if you mean how far into the wheelwell they go.
