Alright, I need an opinion here.

I like my K1's, but I've always wanted something polished with a dish. I'm sick of ridding around on these sunk, curbed up Kosei's. On the other hand, I'm not sure if I wanna get thrown into the "OMGZ Racelands and XXR's" category. The offset and width of the XXR's are both nice, but weight is a downside.

Here are my K1's:



Here are the XXR 513's that I want:



Otherwise I've been looking at the chromium black XXR 527's, what do you guys think?


I know it's my car, but I'm torn on what to do, and I'd like some outside input.

I don't see anything wrong with xxrs.
15x8.25 for under 400. Ok with me.

I think your car with the chromium 527s would look good.

I think the Koseis look really good. Plus you have some legit wheels while you save for something even cooler than XXRs (not knocking XXRs at all).

I have that same dilemma. I love my kosei's but I don't like the offset. I like the XXR's but where I work the boss would never stop makin fun of me. So I decided to save up for some 6ul's or some enkie's. Cost more but it's worth it.

weight of each?
tire size running on each?

personal opinion?
kosei's
Kosei K1's = 13.5 lbs
XXR 513 = 17.0 lbs
XXR 527 = 15.4 lbs

Currently running 205/50/15's on the K1's, but would run 195/45's on my next set of wheels.

Currently tossing around the idea of big spacers on the K1's and maybe repainting them. But with spacers, I wouldn't be able to use my current tires (which I JUST bought). Ugh...

1st reaction: K1's
2nd reaction: 527's black
3rd reaction: the other ones

I've always liked the K1's on the NA

Would you not run into traction problems dropping down tire size?

Real opinion, stay with a 205
I'm not sure, possibly. The tires on my car in the first pics are actually 195/55's. I don't have pics in here of the 205/50's, they're meaty. I like the little amount of stretch I'd get from 195/45's on an 8" wheel.

Might be some stretch with T1Rs
