You will never find Spoons rims for 400$. You will be lucky to find them for under 350$ a peice. I am buying the 16" slipstreams from modacar.com tomarrow. (Payday for my g/f).

And what is "ight" ??? Is that a word? :grin:

the spoons weigh about 9.8 pounds each and the slipstreams are 11.8 i beleive. dont quote me on either of those because it depends on if you get the 15s or 16s. but if you dont want to pay around $2500 for wheels and tires go with the slipstreams. modacar has them for a great price but the problem is the shipping charges. so...if you can...go to a local wheel shop and if you are cool with the people that work there or if they just have a way of doing it, see if they will match modacars price on the wheels. thats what im doing. then you dont have to pay for shipping. and theyve got the 15s for like 112 and the 16s for 125 (i think) ad remember the 16s are going to be heavier but your handling will be better due to extra inch of metel rather then rubber that is obviously stiffer and will have better response.

how much more u think the 16's wuld weigh it cant b that much ...

i cant give you an honest answer but i know its not all that much. i know for sure that it isnt more than a pound. but you have to look into what exactly youre going for. drag racing go with the 15s. or if you just want it to look cool and handle nicely then go 16. and remember the 15s are cheaper for the wheels and tires and youre going to need 4 of each obviously and that adds up pretty quick especially for something that isnt really all that important

what are u smoking

spoon rims in 15 is 385 EACH
16 is 485 EACH

stop dreaming if u dont have enough mony just get the rota's. just dont tell anyone that they are real spoons cuz that's so INSANELY gay.

and if ur daily driving on these, then what's the point u know they're gonna get scuffed up and stuff.
