What do you guys think of this setup using Giovannis and Nittos? $3k
Any thoughts on the rim design?

Those are not too bad. I actually like them.

BUT, I will NEVER buy from a seller that only have 5 feedbacks! Too risky for me, unless that seller have tons of feedbacks.

They're TIS model 10's with Hankook tires. I'm trying to get rid of them. I'm willing to work with the price. So let me know if your interested. Only had them on for about 2 weeks. I ended up going with 26's :D

Thanks---Those are really nice but I was trying to stay at or under 22 because of the long trips between SC and VA. I've had 24's before and they made long trips more bouncy than I preferred. Especially, through mountain roads.

I really want the HRE's but am having a hard time parting with 8k for wheels---probably 10k with tires...ugh Santa is not that good!

I had HRE's on my 02' Z06 (547's) I sent two of them back due to finish problems after 9 months, the car was never rained on or in cold weather, and it was under 1000 miles, they repaired or replaced them but they were never just right. They were great looking wheels but after what I paid and how long it took, just did not want them anymore

Thanks and good to know. I think the closer I get to buy time the more I am inclined to go with a nice silver or maybe even alloy wheel. I realize it's probably a sin to put anything but chrome on the '07 but it's just a bit much. If I do go chrome it will be low profile (but 22's) with some black in them.

Thanks all...
