      Is there a source in the U.S. for the new 18" Ronal R50? I want those for my MS3 like yesterday.

      so true, turbo wheels do own me...so sexual, totally perverted.
      I AM "UNDER THE RADAR"

      i said if before and i'll say it again...life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

      How cool that the've brought back the classic '62 Buick hupcap!





      j/k...

      I love good turbo-style wheels!
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      He also went by "tnord" and most of the Mazda posts were under that name.

      They look great on cars!

      This is amazing. And thanks for the explanation on page one. I was also wondering what their purpose was, and now that I know, I love them even more.
