Hi what's up? I'm a proud new owner of #1786 Release Series 8. I'm a devout Element owner who needed a newer commuter to help prolong my Element's life. I guess I can't think out of the box! I'm currently seeking wheels, what do y'all have?

Thanks. No Slorocket, you must have that confused with something else, IIHS rates it as good as xB2. And with all wheel drive, seats that can be completely removed, it's the most versatile car outside of a minivan especially when i'm carrying around 3 100lb dogs!

Thanks everyone, glad to be here. Still debating 16 or 17s for him. Hard to think about getting new tires when he's only 6k miles, so preferably looking for wheels that can use current tires. Hmmm, so any ways to go!!!!

My RS8.0 has the Motegi FF7 wheels in a 16". oem steelies weigh almost 21 lbs. these weigh a lil over 17 lbs. about a 4 lb weight reduction per wheel.

I put right at 40k miles on mine in the last year so the tires on mine are replacements as the factory did not last long (about 29k). I now run TRD springs with 17x7 Rox Racing wheels with Hankook 225/50 series which take out the gap-age... I think I want to go to 225/45 next or I am going to go to a set of staggered 18" next... I still have the factory Enkei wheels that came on mine taking up room in my shed. I have them on ebay right now for $280 + $100 shipping... just thought I would throw them out there... they are 16x7 with a +50 offset
