In my neverending search to find the perfect black rim for my brilliant black beauty, I think Ive come across a wheel that actually fits my criteria-
reasonably priced, unique, and from a reputable manufacturer (as opposed to 'ebay' rims).

Check them out:
http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse...132731&InfoID=2505&ShowLarge=True&SnipID=3010

....now I talked to the guy at discountwheelwarehouse.com and he said that these rims "are on a boat in the middle of the ocean and will not be here for another 4 weeks". Kinda sounds like bullshit to me, but anyhow Im not waiting that long. I found them on a couple other sites on the net but could not find any information regarding their offset or lug pattern (they appear to be an 8 lug in the pic....odd?)

Does anyone know anything about these rims if they will fit the RWD C? And also if KMC wheels are made according to the order? I tried sending an email directly to KMC inquiring but I dont anticipate to recieve a response anytime soon, hence Im turning to you guys! They are definatly a serious looking wheel and the lip looks HUGE on them!

Just to make sure.....I want to order them in a 5x115 lug pattern with an offset of +15 to +20 with some 265/35/22 (pirelli) tires for proper fitment?

Will the 22x10 size also fit? Im not sure what the 10 means, I think its the width correct?

Thanks in advance guys for any info regarding these rims! I havent seen anyone on here with them on yet.


If for some reason I can not get these, Ive narrowed my 2nd choice down to these:

Just one man's opinion...

My biggest concern with both of these is that the lug patterns don't match for either wheel in the pics. The KMC shows as an 8-lug, and the DVS' show as 6-lug. Has the dealer left you with the impression that both of these wheels are made in a 5-lug pattern? You obviously know that bolt pattern for the C is 5X115. Just MAKE SURE that the bolt pattern is legit. Don't let them sell you a 5X4.5 termed as 5 on 4 1/2 either :nono: . On widths...a 22X9 will fit great, a 22X10 will fit in the rear but not the fronts. Not even close on the fronts, and it's going to rub on the control arm. You can do 8.5, 9.0, and 9.5 in the front but nothing bigger. And in some cases the 9.5 can have rubbing issues. It's all about the offset once you get the right width (which you have).

I think they are both great-looking wheels. Nice chrome lip...they'll pull of the black-on-black thing really well :eek:mfg: . Barring any bolt pattern issues I actually prefer the DVS. IMO it looks cleaner and more like a multi-pieced forged wheel. Although I don't know anything about the quality of the wheel because I'm not familiar with DVS.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS VENDOR!!! I bought 22s from this place and they gave me all sorts of B.S. and eventually shipped and charged me for a bunch of parts I never authorized (lugs, chrome polish, lug wrench). I had to call and talk to a manager (45 minutes on wait over two calls) to get refunded on the accessories. I even sent them a fax beforehand (written notice) not to bill me until I authorized the order (they had to change tire sizes to fit the 300c from what is on their website). They were supposed to call me back about 5-6 times over the course of the week and half it took to complete the purchase. They only called once. I had to continually chase them down. In total I spent 2-1/2 hours on hold trying to buy something from this place. Some of the absolute worst service I've ever seen from a place. I don't know how Superbuytires.com is, but they have a similar selection. Buy from DiscountedWheelWharehouse at your own risk.

hey M&M.....thanks man. although they have good prices and seem to be a reputable site i wouldnt doubt that their customer service is lacking. i made a similar mistake as you when purchasing rims from my old car offline....they took almost 6 months to get here!

anyways, i agree with you guys, the lug patterns worry me and i would not purchase these without making sure they were 5x115 with the proper offset, this includes making sure they are not "redrilled" so i dont hafta worry about stress fractures

im waiting for both DVS and KMC to respond back to me about these rims prior to me purchasing them. im probably going to shop around or have them recommend me a vendor that has the rims in stock so i dont hafta to deal with the BS from discountedwheelwarehouse.com

anyone else know any good/legit wheel sites that would perhaps have these in stock?
