I reckon the MPS rims look the goods, but 2009 RX8 would really set the car off

I really like the black rims. Also like the tinting on that photoshop but just be careful with tinting the rear lights.

i thought about using a 2pak but wasnt too concerned with applying a clear. Just used a quick dry enamel, and will see how this holds off.

I got my new wheels and tyres today.

Ended up going with Akuma N-05s 18"x7.5" with Pirelli 215/35/18 tyres.






I was going to get it lowered at the same time but have now decided to save up some more cash and get struts and springs at the same time. Most likely King low spring with KYB struts..?
