Hey guys,

Normally, I'd do this myself, but due to time constraints on my schedule right now, I'm finding it impossible to sit down and do this. I've found what seems to be a clean set of the rims I want, and before I go out to see them and possibly pick them up, I'd like to "see" them on the car one last time. I've included 1 picture of my car and 2 pictures of the rims in question. I tried to find pics where the angles matched to make it easier:D Thanks in advance!!

^That looks awesome!! The car is sitting on TRD lowering springs and Monroe struts, and it rings in at ~1.1 inches in drop. Killer deal I got too, 200$ shipped for brand new discontinued springs!:eek:

I'd reckon you'd have a hard time finding some trd springs, but I'd look up "GLP Motorsports LLC", which is Gabe's facebook counterpart. I'd let him know and maybe he can get some for you!

As for the output pics, give me a minute to upload the pictures for ya!:lol:

With photoshop.. anything is possible, if you really know how to use the program well lol


Hmm.. maybe the picture doesn't do it justice, I'm sure it looks better in real life but the picture makes the output look really dull

It looks much better in real life, but you have to realize how far away that wall is to appreciate the shot:lol:

No tires, and he wants 200$. From the pic, it looks like they may have some serious damage on the inside lip. What concerns me is if the damage makes the rim not balance out right or spin out of true...

I called in a favor with my friend, and he'll be bringing in a trained set of eyes to see the rims as well:thumbsup: He'll be able to tell me if they are repairable and for about how much:D

I would say pass them.. there will be more wheels, sexier and safer, to come :thumbsup:
Thing is, these rims are hard to find locally.... If the damage is cheap enough to fix, I'll take them. My next best option would be ebay at this point:ugh3:

^That's where I've been looking and it's a dead end for these rims... I've put out a parts request at the local LKQ auto recycler for these... The ones I found where not thru craigslist, it was thru a mutual aquaintance who told me about them :D

just a warning, thoes rims weigh a ton.
Are they a lot heavier than the rims I already have? (I think they are officially called XLE rims, but I have an LE and I have them :dunno:)
