Question New Wheel Choice, Whatchthink?

For some, it's all about the weight...for others, it's all about the look. For me it's 50/50...which has led me to these 3 choices for Trigger's next set of wheels. The TSW's weigh around 3 pounds more per corner, but look better IMO. I'm 33% Interlagos, 33% Apex EC-7, and 34% Panaroma...Whatchthink?



Apex EC-7 (Profile 1):
F: 18x8.5" ET35 - 20.10 lbs
R: 18x9.5" ET58 - 20.65 lbs



TSW Interlagos:

F: 19X8 5-120 ET35 - 23.85 lbs +/-
R: 20X9.5 5-120 ET48 - 23.60 lbs +/-



TSW Panaroma:

F: 20x9.0 5 120 ET35 - 23.85 lbs
R: 20x9.5 5 120 ET48 - 23.6 lbs

If you don’t mind me putting in my two cents, SRG963; the Apex EC-7 would look amazing on your G8.

You got my vote for the Interlagos, I dont care for the last choice, and the first is to much like the wheels you have now and had in the past with the Breytons.

Interlagos look good!

I voted for the Apex wheels, but they are similar to what I saw on your car a few months ago. Hmmm..I thought your profile pic had your current wheels, but your profile pic shows the Sport 19's..I think?

Only difference is I plan to go with GunMetal and then do the 18x9.5 +43 in the rear. That different rear will be profile 2, so a tad more concave (which I really dig).

When you guys want to get rid of your current set-ups let me know. I'm in the market (will be) & mod money is going to be gettin low, cam, heads, intake going to happen in a month or 2. I don't think I'll be buying new this year.

Apex are a mix of the VMR and Breytons. They are concave more like VMRs but more pointy like the Breytons.

Apex are hot. Trying to justify it as we speak. Have a feeling I will have a harder time selling my Camaro rims and tires. They may have had their time. I was just looking for lighter.
