      Haha, I like Enkei's style of wheels. Plus I don't hardly see anyone with Enkei's around here, so I think it'd be nice to see a change Not too expensive for a set of 4 either. $170 a piece for the EKM3's.

      I'll go with the EKM3's. I realize all of their wheels look ****ty, but there are few wheels that look nice. And those few wheels are the ones I want.

      What do you mean by that? I have no way of seeing them before I buy them.

      EDIT: I understand what you mean by that. I looked them up on YouTube and there's a civic SI with the EKM3's and it looks terrible. Thanks for telling me that.

      RPF1s would look incredibly awful on a Jetta SE. There's no point in putting an honest race wheel on a car that screams "not made for performance."

      They are a great wheel, but you're REALLY looking in the wrong direction.

      You just need to buy an OEM setup from Paul @ Keffer. Can't beat the deal. My $900 shipped set from him came with tires that list for $650 + shipping on TireRack. A ****in steal.

      - someone who has owned RPF1s before.

      You don't seem to understand the concept of 'k'. It means thousand so its 50k and 80k not 8000k

      any girl worth a **** doesn't give a **** what kind of wheels you have, and it's guaranteed to look classier and overall nicer if you have something OEM on there then some "custom" looking crap just to be different.

      i'm tellin you man....trust us, we've been there. i came here at 14 y/o.
