The wheel in question is 17" and weighs around 13lbs. I had made up my mind on the Volk GT-N's but I saw the picture below and I got kinda turned off on the wheels. I'm still considering the gt-n, but I'm also entertaining the wheel above and the RH CP-035 in gold... all 17".

The wheels on that A4? S4? are very nice. So are the Gt-ns though!! What color and generation Lude are we talkin about here?

The rims on the S4 look good, however looks out of place on a European ride.

I personally like the CP-035 best out of ur 3 choices

i'm almost certain the first one is the SSR competition (Type C in Japan) TireRack.com sells them exclusively in the US. 17x8 offset, Anthracite with polished lip.

the second ones look like the Volk GT-N but they remind me of the Blitz wheels.

here is SSR's Japan site http://www.speedstar.co.jp/collection.html
http://www.tirerack.com for the US distro

I would go with the gold CP-035.. but all 3 wheels are real nice...

Also, about that pic of the black integ, do those wheels look photoshopped to anyone else? like how the edges on the bottom of that front wheel look kinda jagged? i dunno, it could just be late =) If they are photoshopped, it could be why they dont look quite right. I suggest trying to see these wheels in person if possible.. pics dont do some of these wheels justice (and others look better in pics)

Thanks for the input guys. This is for a white 5th gen.

I think the SSR's look better without the stickers on them. They just come in the box, not attached, and noone is putting them on. I don't really like the gunmetal... but the wheel shape is somewhat interesting and less "common" than the CP-035. I really liked the picture of the GT-N's on that blue RX-7, but the three pics I've seen on hondas (two R's and an S2000) don't look right.

I'd buy those Technospeed's if they weren't twice my pricerange... Honestly, I feel like I'm having to trade looks for lightness, so I'm trying to "settle" on looks.

I'll always have a soft spot for things like the SE-37A and Sienna Generation II.

Have you ever considered the GTP's? Those are the cool looking 3 piece wheels that kind of look like the TE37's. I think they are really nice looking wheels. I wanted a set for myself.

I never liked those. They're way too flat for me. I like a wheel with at least a little depth to it. I think I've ruled out the GT-N's at this point. Since there's really only one place to buy the SSR's I'm just trying to get quotes on the CP-035's.... and I'm actually gonna buy something this time instead of just talk about it.... quite a change for me.
