Those are crazy expensive.

I would get the Volk just because of the prestige.

Both sets in 17":

Volks are ~$500USD/rim (~$750CDN x 4 = ~$3000) - $1,910.00USD from Rotormotorsports.com

SSRs are $375USD/rim (~$600CDN x 4 = ~$2400) - TireRack.com


another thing, i jus want to get some opinions on which LOOK better, not which are more prestigous/expensive/blingbling

i'm pretty damn sure i can find some cheap knockoffs that look exactly the same
(no i'm not some autocrossing fanatic or 1/4 dragster that needs to shave off 0.05's of a second)

if you are just going for looks and not performance get the
SSR's they look much nicer in my opinion.

see that's the thing
i think the SSR's look better as well

but if i ever plan on racing/autocrossing my car one day, and those SSR's dont hold up...i dont want to spend a couple thousand dollars on rims...TWICE

*sigh*

LanEvo: that's what EVERYONE says, that i should get white ones
i just want something subtle, white is too flashy

the car attracts enuf attention already, i dont need/want rice boys going "woooo....T2 w/ white rims"

the gunmetal/anthracite would pass thru many people's "woooo vision" much easier....and that's wat i want it 2 do ;)

I personally don't like white rims on a black car... I know a guy w/ VW and it looks tacky. Others I've seen look cool, but they contrast too much for me.

I like the antracite colour, and there are some racing harts and motegi's that I like.

As for your question, the Volk are probably a better quality wheel and both would look sweet. Go with your fav's, you have to spend the cash so you have to like them ... who cares what we think.... :thumbsdown: :bigthumbup:

i personally like the look of the first ones better...but as everyone says...Volks alone make a statement.
