TSW's are good quality rims. I've had 2 sets before and they are not low end at all.

Well stock wheels are +48mm, so if these are +35, that means the wheel hub is pushed out 13mm AND take into account the wheels are 8" wide, so add another half inch to the 13mm, thats about an inch total it will be pushed outward.

So look at your car and determine if you pull your wheels out an inch will it rub.

The inside of the wheel should be ok due to the offset.

Tenzo R was really popular in the early 2000's. Kinda like a XXR priced company.. Along the lines of that, Konig, etc. They're not terrible..

Do your homework on the wheels. Find reviews on them, read up on quality, manufacturing processes, basically google em and read everything you can find on them.

I think anything bigger then 17 youre increasing chances of damage. And keep your steel wheels just in case.

Why would you go off-road with brand new wheels anyway? why not swap your steelies on with some beater tires when you plan on off-roading?

I mean, you get what you pay for. Like anything. I'm on some Rota Attack v2's right now. I'm not a fan of replica wheels, but it was a deal I couldn't pass by. I plan on upgrading to some BBS's, Gram Lights, OZ's etc soon enough. Nothing wrong with being on a budget. Hell, I've seen several thousand dollar wheels bust. If you're worried about strength, look for forged wheels. Stronger than cast. My old Volks were forged and cast (forged spokes, cast lip - two piece GTN's). Those things could take a beating.

what color what color what color, will you paint them

to LegionSpecter,
enkei wheels are pretty strong, i have never broken rims before even with nyc potholes so maybe I am doing something wrong.
OZ makes a few wheels as well, msw, sparcos, all are made by oz.

i wont get any until july if i do at all. like i said before, i have a tight budget and that budget is whatever i get for my birthday from family. if i have enough i would like to get some konig illusion blue or lightning blues (if konig can make some with 5holes). i am kinda limited because the "maybebabies" would have the oem 15x6.5 yokos slapped on it because like i said tight budget

i would try to find a job, but i have to go straight from school to tomball everyday to pickup my sister from her dumb private school, and dont get home till around 4. i cant stop doing that because my parents pay me by paying for my gas. i think thats worth it because i drive pretty aggressively (the info thing in my car says my average mpg is 22.2).
which is why i asked about the wheels in the first place.

fast enough to get from cy creek to Salem luthern (about a 25 mile drive) in about 15-20min in mid day traffic. what suprises me is that i have driven on one of the most fun routes in my area every day for almost 9 months now, and have yet to see another txic member out there. ive seen a few around my neighborhood but cant be identified due to absence of stickers because of a lack of virtual payment for them. i have the 6 bucks in cash too.
