Lookin good. Here... now we dont have to click the images.
It's killing me that I can't name those wheels! I've seen the center caps a million times but can't remember what they say for the life of me.
Rota and xxr already came to mind. They have that design but wrong center caps. lol

117 for 4, LOL. They may not be the highest quality but I like the way they look.
I'll let ya know if I have any problems.
WOW, regardless of the tier in quality.. thats a GREAT deal... And, they look really nice with your car's red! :donatello:

Do you plan to get some tints on that beauty? (sorry if you mentioned this somewhere else)

When I said 117 for 4 LOL it was kinda like saying "you gotta' be kidding!" No, they were 117 ea.
I'd kinda like to go 20% tint (except windshield) but I don't know who does good work and I don't
want somebody to just schlock it on. Not many more mods with the possible exception of a rear
sway bar. Not into coil overs or lowering, just that my generation never got into that.

bahahaha. I hadn't responded yet because I couldn't find a way to say "There is no way dude, I would never buy wheels for that cheap what is wrong with them." hahaha Had us going dude.

Believe me, your generation was plenty into it. It just isnt your cup of tea maybe. Slammed cars have been around since modding began.

When I was (a lot) younger and into muscle cars the big thing was 1/4 mile and it was cooler to
raise them up instead of lowering them down. Tuner cars weren't even around yet (1960's)
Don't think serious modding even started til the late '70s

No way man. It just wasnt the crowd you were involved in so you didn't see everything the rest of the tuning world was doing.
One thing I learned. Nothing is original. Meaning, what me and my friends thought we were doing was ground breaking because it was our first cars and we had no idea what was out there. Only to find people across the country and world were doing them decades earlier. Internet has given people the ability to share trends and let them grow futher. But youd be surprised how like minds think alike.

Slamming cars the way I am interested in is a Japanese thing... not a low rider thing. But who can say if American hot rods and low riders came before or after the Japanese mob, the Yakuza, where slamming their own VIP early model toyota and even mazdas when they were more luxurious than sporty.

Bosozoku style cars started in the 1950s in Japan. Like I said, you'd be surprised how expansive the automotive world is. Id say people were even slamming cars before the Bosozoku era I just don't know what they called it.

You're 100% correct my man, I didn't even know "tuner guys" existed until about 15 yrs ago
I'm not a tuner guy and just wanted a nice car that was fun to drive. I think the ILX is perfect

NOBODY commented on my "artistic backdrop" WTF...?
Just kidding, of course.
Actually, the second thing I thought of after staring at your wonderful ILX was how well maintained that grassy area is... wish my backyard could say the same.

By the way, I'm guessing the TPMS sensors transferred to your new wheels with no problems?
