I have a friend who's trying to sell me a set of 18" KONIG "Flights" (just the wheels no tires), they're still in the box set of 4 for $900.00. is that a good deal?

I do undertand that 20" wheels are very expensive and so are the tires. But let me tell you they would look nice.

Ody-ranger,
Thats a good price, it depends if they fit and you like the style. I bought 17's and wished I had 18's...

This is very confusing...
I have a bunch of friends who are telling me to get dubs 20" wheels. However, in my area no one has done that yet and it's possibly because they go for $2,500.00 and up.

I will do my best to get me a nice set of dubs.

They're telling you to get 20s because they're spending someone else's money. Friends are supposed to do that.

I'd go with 18s or 19s. My problem with 20s isn't about their size. My problem is that no one makes a style I like. Every model that's made as a 20 has that BLING BLING look to it. Sorry, not for me.

Linh,

Thanks for the compliment, I will try to post a pic here.

I just need to find out as to how to do it.

Well I was at the SEMA show in November 01'. There was a Lexus 470 with 26" wheels and tires/yes, that's a 26" wheel! One of my concerns is simply the rotating mass/unsprung weight of some of these wheel packages...nice way to kill performance/braking/handling.
Try contacting www.wheelspecialists.com, they are in Tempe AZ, speak with PHIL. He is working on some wheel packages specifically for the Ody...price should be very good too!

don't forget..the bigger the rim the worse you ride!
I personally don't care, but some might....I think i'm going with 18's. was considering the RH M6 as well...but might get a set of VOLK TE37's in gunmetal instead.
