Why? They're heavy as hell. There are so many better 18in options out there in tires as well.

But they're the lighter BBS wheels I think.

They're like $1300 ea. from the dealer. I can buy an entire lightweight set for that price and still have money left over to buy Wendys.

Thanks! For some reason, I thought they were 18s. No idea why I thought that.

About $400 less per wheel at Mach V, but that's for the 18" BBS.

They should be 18's. 19's are purely for looks. 18's fit perfectly fine over the new calipers as long as you're careful.

They suck in my opinion. Fragile, bumpy ride, unnecessary. Aesthetically they look nice but not worth trouble. Had two bent rims in about 2 years of ownership. They got bent sometime in first 6 months. Their also heavy in my opinion two.
