These are more like the Eagle 025's I was liking. What do you all think about these? Also will my 245/45/17's fit on well enough on the 7" rims?

Yeah I liked that the Eagle 025's had the rivets painted black.

Everything I like seems to be discontinued... (Eagle 025s, 077s, 168s...)

Those aren't bad, the lip's just gonna make them appear smaller.

If I ever get the money together, ASA's are in my top 3 choices..very nice rims.

I like the second ones better. Id try and find an 8" wide wheel so the sidewalls are more vertical, instead of bubbling outward.

Sorry I meant that my tires are 225/45/17. They'll fit perfect.

Anyone think it will be a problem that they're discontinued? What do you do if one of them cracks or if you one gets destroyed in an accident?

When I get mine Im buying an extra so if one cracks I have a spare. They are cheap enough with them being on closeout.

Good Idea. I know Ive seen more than one thread on here of people looking to buy one wheel or sell three wheels because they ended up breaking a wheel.

Not bad, but that design is going to make them look like 16's ...

I know tirerack carries ASA's, give 'em a call and see how many they have in stock. If you can't get an extra now, perhaps you can set something up to get one later.

The Akuma's look pretty nice. Not a fan of the other rim though. Looks to plain to me.

Are you planning on buying wheels online, or at a local tire shop?

The ASAs will be here Tuesday and on the car Wednesday :D

Thanks for everybody's input

Those first one's are hot, depending on the color of your GA.
