    Is this for sets you have had but sold and moved on, or sets you have and use whenever you want?

    I'll play. Keep in mind this is all within the past year and a half that I've owned the car

    Winter mode - nothing exciting there. Not even pic worthy when they were on the car

    16" steelies wrapped in Pirelli Winter carvers


    Sold last years' setup
    REV GOLD Version 2
    18x7.5 wrapped in Goodyear F1


    Becoming a diva now.

    Transition mode (rocking these between March to May and again Sept through November)
    OEM 17" GT rims w/ all-seasons


    Summer option 1
    OEM Lancer GTS rims 18x7.5 (the OEM center caps fit right in place)


    Summer option 2
    5Zigen Pro Racer Super 6 18x7.5 (weighing in at 17.5lbs)



    Still can't decide if I'm gonna powder coat the summers or not. They will be wrapped in Dunlop Sports

    if the offset of the mitsu rims makes them fit flush they will look really wicked. otherwise I'd go with the 5zigen
    there's no such thing as too much zoom zoom

    I believe they're +42 or something. I honestly can't remember. I've been researching so many different rims, I went cross eyed

    So I'm probably the official OEM rim whore

    16" GS Rims (2004 - 2008)



    18" RX-8's (2008 - 2009)



    18" MS3's (2009 - 2010)



    17" GT Rims (2010 - 2011)



    17" Snowflakes (2011 - present)



    This year I was aiming for MS6 rims but now I have other plans for her...
