Hmmm... good question. I bet i would have some custom magnesium rims made. 18" x 9.5" wrapped in some Yokohama AO32R rubber

Those babies stick like glue!

Hmm, well my car is black and though I'm not buying rims for my car (it cost $2500 from my cousin, not worth dumping any money into it lol) but if I were, I think my E36 would look amazing with some black rims, maybe even carbon fiber if I was really going crazy and spending tons of money on it, you may be amazed at how much faster your car will be with lighter rims, I remember hearing that for bikes every pound lost on your rims is equal to about 3 pounds lost off the body in terms of performance difference, and considering for cars the difference is probably even bigger and you've got 4 tires, I could easily drop 20 or more pounds by going carbon fiber....

But enough pipe-dreaming.

Once I get a respectable car (looking at either an Evo IX/X, BMW 335i or 135ti (yes, the 1 series is coming to America! Imagine the 306HP twin turbo 6 from the 335i but in a tiny 1 series, mmmm) or an E39 5 series or E34 M5) then I will put some nice rims/tires on it and do some serious performance mods.

Well Performance is a strict ratio, thats all. Nothing more. Power:Weight. So if you can reduce weight and sustain the same power, youll be all the faster. There are many parts out there that can reduce wieght, and add better performance aswell. Rims are just one. Right now im tempted to get a new flywheel for my truck. The new one weighs 11.9lbs. The stock one weighs 26.4 Big difference in throttle response!
