j-dawg wrote:Personal opinion here - it's rare to see a P80 car on anything bigger than 16s that looks proportionately correct. 17s are case-by-case and 18s almost always look way too big. It's hard to find non-OEM wheels in 5x108 and 16/17" that aren't chintzy garbage, so I just stick with the Perfos. I feel like one could probably pull off bigger wheels by going really low, but at 0-1 inches of drop something about 18+ wheels feels off to me.

If I thought I could pull off 18" wheels on a P80 car, I'd have a set of these. I'd add 75% to the value of the car in wheels and tires alone, and these are the cheaper version of the wheel.
Those are pretty nice. I agree, though, I like the Perfos. Perfect size and look to me. Not too big like the 18" Pegasus, but not too small like my 15" Antlias.

Someone mentioned Comets! I have Perfo's and they are nice and 16" Unfortunately the Comets are 17" But there's an almost identical wheel called the Meteor that is 16" I really like the looks of it!!
