Lookin' good! I'd forgotten about the VPD's. IIRC, it's someplace like Club1320 on honda-tech.com, that offers these to FWD drag racers. Only sells 'em in pairs. If you've found another place, do tell!

looks amazinggggg

Can anyone explain the performance advantages/disadvantages of smaller/larger wheels? Same for +/- offsets....

My friend has a set of GM/Chrome lipped 15" Sportmax 002's on Falken Azenis that hell give me for 400 flat...I'd take em but i feel like theyll slow me down and hurt braking...will they or not really?

i'm yet to perform on these but i here they give you a better gearing/slighter faster acceleration.

at the expense of hub bearing wear and tear

They've also got gunmetal. I bought a set of those about a year ago.

The car looks great! =D> What size Hoosiers are those?

let us know about the durability?
from what i know they are delicate ,and should only be on drag cars, but ive seen them autox'd alot, they say "for Comp use only". i wonder how long they will hold up on the street.
i have a set of VPD's in 16x7, they are street wheels.

I've used them for a full season of autocross, approximately 2 event a month, 6-8 runs up to 1.5 mile courses. One of the sites is pretty rough and I haven't had a single problem, but it's not like they've ever been through a pothole.

Wow. That's nice. Very handsome wheel and the stance is aggressive. I like how the low offset gives the spokes a concave look.
