[]Hayden Baker

That's too funny. There's a great website called which allows you to put it all the measurements and will show you how that wheel and tire set up compares to another set up. I usually put in my stock wheel and the aftermarket one then measure off the stock wheel. It's really helpful

It's nice to see a manufacturer being so involved with the community they provide products for.

[]Robert Sixto

Nice little upgrade there! Although I loved the styling of that generation Eclipse, I know they are pretty sluggish by today's standards.

Anybody know what kind of wheels these are?

[]Robert Sixto

Hard to say, lots of companies have that kind of style. They kind of look like Work VSXX's to me.

[]Alek Merkoulov

They are Forge Line WC3s.... 1330 per wheel lol

[]Ernie Szots

They look like a BBS mesh variety.

[]Alek Merkoulov

Thought so too but they are forgelines

Does anybody have trouble deciding on what they want to invest their time and money into? I've been

[]Brian Post

My time is money and figuring out what to play with or work on never comes out the way I want it to. I go one way, then something (life) pulls me the other way. You gotta do what you can while you can! You really only live once - gotta enjoy every minute of it.

[]Yves Vds

Time and money are scarce. So yeah, I am always juggling between different things and trying to set my priorities right. But sometimes life is not only about work. So yeah, from time to time I spend some money on my car. Trying to keep it reasonable, but it is not always easy. Just do what makes you happy!

[]Mister Modtomic

How about an Audi TT tuned by HPA?

[]Simon Gelinas

Honda s2000. Buy now and watch it appreciate in value. Otherwise a c6 427 vert is a great bang for the buck.

[]Marshall Owens

I know you want a vert, but maybe get a newer Mustang with the the 5.0. You get almost 400 out of the box and you can make pretty decent power with the stock internals. With some mods, you can make them handle stupid good too.

[]Alek Merkoulov

There are 2 main reasons why I like roadsters; lightweight and agility. The mustang has the hp and torque I'm looking for but I don't get the excitement I want with everyday driving, especially in an area like where I live where the roads twist and turn. A small well handling 250 hp roadster would honestly be more fun for my use than the Mustang GT. That's why I was hell bent on the miata and frs for a while. Take off 800-1300 pounds and the give me the same hp and torque and you would give me exactly what I want

[]Marshall Owens

I have to agree with you on light weight cars. Agility is a huge fun factor for me personally. How do you feel about the S2000? They have a pretty stout motor and can take some boost when you want to turn the power up. Pretty much one of the best roadsters you can buy.
