Anyone put either on their car? I have a black 3i with a yakima rack for my bike. The rack has red accents so I thought a red stripe on a black wheel would look good. Maybe paint the brake calipers red too? Thoughts or opinions? Im open to other suggestions too.

I looked up the Koing forward since I didn't know what they look like. HATE IT! But that's just my opinion. The TWS Trackstars look so much better.

I thought they looked cool online but when I did a wheel visualizer they looked awful. the tsw's are my #1 so far

I think you can't go wrong getting either Tinker's TSW or Oliver's Drag wheels, they both look great.

I on the other hand am saving up for a TSW Nurburgring in Matte Gunmetal form. It is pricey, but based on their site, at 18" it is more lightweight than a comparable Enkei wheel pricewise I've seen on Tirerack.

The TSW Nurburgrings are nice looking wheels and the weight savings is pretty significant...I almost opted for those instead of the TrackStars that I got. In the end, I like the time attack scheme just a bit better for the way I wanted the car to look. The wright savings might have helped out a bit but with a sub enclosure in the trunk I pretty much said "fuck it" with respect to saving weight.

The main problem is I have to keep it 16". Everything is made in 17". TSW are the only cool black with red stripe wheel in a 16". And they aren't exactly cheap.

Frnchplayr15 btw can you tell me what Konigs those are, what size and tire setup you have?? I'm thinking similar type of rims for mine? or 17x7.5 TSW Nurburgring Gunmetal.
