    What do you guys think? I have coilovers and I got 1/4" spacers in the rear. Who's running these size wheels, give me some info on how they perform. thanks

    $1700 for four, clearance issues probably both front and rear, heavy because large....totally inappropriate IMO.

      If you're prepared for what that looks like and entails, then go for it.

          I would stay well away from 0 degree offset, especially on a larger wheel. Also, there is no weight listed. Could be over 15 pounds, maybe 18 or more. There are relatively cheap wheels out there (several Konigs, for example) that are under 13 pounds and have much better offsets (35 to 42).

            I don't think so. I know down below it says the auction is for 4 wheels, but at the top it says quantity 1, price US dollars $419. But anyway they are very impractical for Festys, unless someone is doing some radical mod$ to his/her car.

              Looks like it's for a set of 4. I'm guessing they have several sets. So when you put quantity 1 you are buying one set. It's a little confusing. I'm with you on them not being a very ideal wheel...the width and the offset are not in your favor.

                    Those wheels are atrocious. They're cheap and heavy. That size of wheel will not fit a Festiva without fairly involved suspension/wheel/tire work.

                        Do you think I could use this to roll my fenders and be able to run those rims with slightly streched tires? fastivab6tg25mr rolled his fenders and he was running 16x7. thanks

                          first look at die-laughings(black car with pink graphics) wheels & make sure you want your tires to stick out that far then just get the wheels you want, who care what everyone else thinks its your car to fix up as you please. there are lots of people who will post that someones car is ugly or they dont like the paint job or wheels on certain cars. but i have seen some cars with (to me) ugly paint jobs, fart cans,cars with different colored hoods, ugly wheels, etc but i dont post negative comments on them b/c thats what they like & they might not like my car but i love seeing all sorts of festys in all kinds of different ways. i could care less what people think about mine! except the people that like it. lol

                            haha right on man! I dont really care what people think but I just dont want it to not fit well, like I want to make it as easy as possible so I dont buy rims that wont even fit good, if you know what I mean. I think my car looks sick Ill post some pics but I really need some rims and I wanna go for that stanced look. thanks

                              then go with wider 13s or 14s with a better offset & you could even do some flares or roll the fenders the old way with a baseball bat. tons ow wheels on ebay that would work for you. good luck
