dropped on RS*R Sport Intelligence coilovers. I can still go lower in the back I just need different tire size for that. Once my Continental DW tires wear out Imma switch them. On the front I got 255/35/18 and I will probably put them on the rear as well.

Anyone know the weights of the 18' rims for these? I don't assume they are racing rims right?

i think i read somewhere that they are around 23lbs. i also read that one dude landed his sti wagon or some car and hit a ditch and a telephone pole and no damage to the wheels. he actually hit the pole with one of the rear wheels. for the price, size and offset they are awesome if you ask me.

Im looking for more of a weight savings over stock with a more aggressive offset for tracking.

Good thing I found this thread. After recently waiting forever for a set of rims from a member on here I was actually considering mb wheels.

Quick question as there is no need for a separate thread.

For example, if I order a set of mb battle's from discount tire should I be ordering 2 18X8 5-114.3 43MBR's and 2 18X8 5-114.3 30MBR's? I assume those numbers 43 and 30 meant offsets in which case for front and rear. They are both the same width so I also am assuming you will have to stagger your tire size yourself.

Well they weigh less by around 3 pounds, touring wheels are around 26lbs if i remember correctly. if you want track wheels that are light, why not go for the enkei RPF1's? they are only about 3-400 bucks more plus there are other enkei wheels that are good for track that are light.

go with the 18x9.5 with +15 offset, but you are right the 43 and 30 is the offset. the ones that you are thinking would look kinda retarded on a 350 unless you run big spacers. only other thing is that if you do get those that you are thinking of ordering they wont be as concave as the ones in my picture. with the sizes that I am running i could run a square set up tire.

right now discountiredirect.com has $50 instant discount if you purchase 4 wheels. comes to under $800 if you take off the "installation kit"

these have to be some of the best looking budget wheels ive seen. im considering picking up a set for the track. anyone have any idea what the 18x9.5 weigh?

around 23lbs


Edit: well after searching some more maybe i was incorrect on the weight. seems like they are more close to 27lbs but they definitely don't feel that heavy. strange....

yea for track they might not be the best solution. i would rather go with rpf1s for track but as far as a DD set of wheels you cant go wrong with them for the price.

Im a little confused. Do they make the battle's in a different size and offset or are you talking about the weapons?

Edit. Your pic seems to be of the battle. I guess they do make them 9.5 and a different offset ???

Yes, the MB Battles do come in 18x9.5 +15 offset. Which is better for our cars than 18x8 in +43 or +30 offset.
