I'm so excited, this is my first set of aftermarket rims (Maxxim 187's). While I know they're not the fanciest thing out there. It's all I could afford right now and they match my car perfectly.

I love it. Nice and clean, not too crazy or ricey looking.




Nice, new Kumho 712's in 205-50-16.


I'm also really impressed with the place I ordered them from. http://www.whalentire.com. They paid attention to every detail, included socket lugs for free and even threw in some neato chrome valve caps!

Well whatdya think?

It was a steal. The whole package, mounted/balanced, including lugs & locks was $830 shipped.

Nice Rims

Those rims look kick ass. Would they fit on 2con gen Mx-6?

Those rims are AMAZING!

Yeah, they'll fit on a 2ndgen no problem. Same bolt pattern.

Thanks for the compliments :)

Here's another angle:

Thanks!

Those rims are on 17" Yokohama Paradas. I've only had them for a couple of months and get quite a stares. During the first week I had over 10 people at work that I've never met ask about them.
One even went as far as to buy the same tires and rims for his VW Golf.

Nice!!

I love the way they look. I'm thinking about getting those for my 93.

How would you rate their service and about how long did it take you to receive them from the order date?

Their service was great. They shipped the same day, but since they're located in Butte, Montana they took about 6 business days to get to me. But otherwise they were as good as dealing with "The Tire Rack". Everything was packaged well, and they even threw in bags for me to put my old wheels/tires in.

It's not all about the name of the rim!
The ones you picked are perfect for your ride.
Good Find!

Now lets just do something about those amber fog lights.



94 LS, 5 spd, B+G sport springs, Tokico struts, Platinum +4 plugs, NGK wires, Vibrant FSTB, Ractive RSTB, K&N filter, 17'' Falken's w/215/45/17 Yokohama Avid H4's, and a pioneer system
