While I wouldn't want them, those orange rims are quite spectacular.

The 16" 'Sport' rims came on the Edition #1 I bought.


They are 16x6 ET44 Front, 16x6.5 ET40 Rear


They do look good, but the Contis are noisy...


I went looking for tires and there aren't many choices for those odd wheel widths - 185/50/16 Front, 205/45/16 Rear


So I embarked on a 453 wheel search to get all four the same width.


https://www.ebay.com/itm/Size16-7-0-....c100227.m3827


I contacted the seller and he said he had them in Black - I got four 16x7 ET30 Black Centers

Love the 'JDM' lippage'


Now onto finding centercaps, TPMS sensors/valvestems, and quieter tires I can rotate lol
