Wheels, thoughts and more wheels...

Xmas time is around the corner and since I dont need new socks would probably like some new summer wheels instead. Thoughts? Which will hold up the best?

Definitely have to be 19's

1) VMR, V710 of course.
2) Neuspeed RSe14
3) OEM 19 Talladega's
4) Miro
5) TSW Nurburdging
6) 3dsm

Any thoughts, experiences, opinions will help.

Going to do a polished alloy look or gunmetal.

Based on your list it looks like you're not looking for $$$$$ multi-piece wheels. If I were going to do 19's again I would get Hartmann HROC's. They would look great on a Rising Blue R

I'd do 3dsm if you're bagged. Neuspeeds if not. Those are my top two choices for my ride

Neuspeeds and 19" Talladegas would be my top picks there. Or maybe consider the Audi s4 wheels that are similar to talladegas.

I know they're not on your list, but the Forgestar F14s are nice. Similar to the V710s, but I like them better. If I had the cash, I'd get them for my car.

i really like the look of the stock wheels.. the design fits the R perfectly.. that being said if i were going to upgrade the only thing i would consider is the 19'' euro talladegas. the S4 wheels aren't a bad look either.
