Good to see I'm not the only one. I prefer RSO's but a few friends are trying to talk me into RVK's :D

If your going to go for an aggressive look, RVK's would be more my choice

But, everything else, id go RSO's

RSO are proven to look nice on libs.

RVK are nice too though and could also look good. Plus they would be a less common style for a lib.

Plus the RKV only has 5 holes.
I'm not a huge fan of multi fitment wheels with all the holes. Or even wheels that look like multi fitment even if the extra holes are for decoration.
Having said that the RSO still look really good.

Why are you getting rid of the wheels you've got? They look really good!
I got this plan. It's called 'Save Ass'. And the way it works is this - I slip outta one of these windows and I run like a bastard!

Thanks Reuben, it's a tough decision but I think I'll go mainstream and get the RSO's at this stage.

Thanks Corsair, I love the XXR's and I am definitely going to miss them, by with the offset they scrub and after taking it to 3 separate places talking guardwork, I can not stop that without cutting into the car and doing some big work. The wheels are hitting the guards pretty hard with the roads around here so they will have to go. That and I have to admit I'm excited at the prospect of getting 19's :)

Copying Nick :o heh go with whatever you want they're both good. IMO I went with completely different wheels to what I wanted, and don't regret it. It's nice to be different sometimes! Think about it
One of the youngens, so play nice.

Hahaha I know I feel a bit weird buying the same wheels as other people, but I have been looking at the RSO's for a while now. I've got some time to think while my XXR buyer gets his money together, so I may end up with RVK's, you never know. I do like that idea because they're different, but RSO's also look a million bucks.

Sup Kody B! Enthusiastic young fella!

Even if others have the same wheels you may not have another member in the same state with the same wheels

Enthusiasm is a good thing... right? :)

Yeah I don't have any issues with anyone having the same wheels as me, I just feel bad because I feel like I'm 'copying' their style.
After a little incident on LGT forums about my XXR's, I've come to realize that some people get... emotional when you have the same wheels as them.

Regardless, I'm just going to get what I want and be damned anyone who gets emotional! :D

Yeah, the guy got shut down by a few members and then deleted his comment, so it wasn't really an issue but I'm very aware of my wheel choices now.
With some luck, my wheels will sell this week and I'll be one of the members who is making Perry's (Takuma sales guy) Christmas a damn fine one :)

Also, I have my lip on but am not putting a pic up until my badge arrives, becauseracecar.

Lol, I wouldn't waste the money for a track day in my car. It's not nearly set up enough, that and it's slow as hell XD

It just looks like a race car... :D
