They Villans are heavy so im not too keen on them. I dont know about the 5Ziegens, but the look the best of the 3 IMHO. I would consider those if they came in a black or anthricite center section, on my car.

Yea, but what is the offset for the wheels? The Team Dynamics are at least 45mm and I havn't seen any Konig in anything less than 40mm, and 5Zigin I think has a 43mm. I went with the Team Dynamics 17x7.5 45mm.

My friend had those exact konigs on his Jetta and he hated them. Not to mention the coating started to come off of them and they started to look like they had leprosy.

The 5ZR all the way! Those rims look awesome. I didnt know they were that cheap. What offset do they come in? And do they come in anthracite?

Just checked the web site, they dont fit our cars. You need atleast a 48mm offset for 17s...closer to 53mm the better....Damnit.

The 5zigen wheels come in a 48+ offset. If you don't belive me call auto imaging or I think www.aktusa.com has the offset listed. ANd there is a member at the I-club with those wheels.

Imprezive- I just PM'ed you

For everyone else interested in the monsoons, check out the Advanti Racing (ADR) Battle Z 2's available at Wheelmax.com I called and ordered mine last night. They are 17x7 with a 50mm offset and weigh about 21lbs. Yea its a little heavy, but for the price its not bad. $1275 shipped to my door in 3-4 days mounted and balanced with toyo T1-S's 215/45/17. I am not planning on doing much auto-xing anyway. I cant wait, need the car now!!!

Cool

The Team Dynamics are sweet! They are definately my favorite choice. I like the white ones myself.
