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?
They show up as 702 shipped. Not a bad looking rim for so cheap.

^that looks great dude but I really think dropping the car a bit will make them stand out even more, other than that car looks good

Looks great, you can get away with lowering it a bit and not have any issues at all with rubbing

Strange.. I called discount tire yesterday on these to find the weight and pricing and was told they were 21 lbs. If that is true it's music to my ears.

Did you actually weigh yours? Anyone know for sure?

The acutal UPS package per wheel was 28.7lbs on my ups shipment. I figure the carton couldn't weigh more than a lbs.

Finally got to join in with the rest of the Battle crowd! 18x9.5 +15 all around in Matte Bronze. A drop via Eibach Pro Kit and Tokicos is coming soon!

My only complaint about these wheels is the chrome ring around the center cap. I plan on masking off the carbon fiber in the center and painting the caps black to match the car and lug nuts.

Is it weird that I'm considering selling my Volks for a set of these and putting the $$$$ difference in the bank?

Its a little strange, yes, but I dont think its a bad thought, at all. MB's are a really good quality budget wheel. This is just my DD and I plan on building another DSM for my "go fast" needs... so I didnt really see the point in dropping like $2k on a set of wheels that will probably end up getting curb rash, etc.

Damn I'm soooo happy just bought my mb battles last night
Their so sexy but tires are not best size cause I'm on coilovers.
225 in rear n 215 in front.. But it probably change Soon.
Also one thing I really like about the mb is how it looks with stretched tires
Mmmmm

Just got the matte bronze 18x9.5 +15 on brand new 245/40 Sumitomo HRTZ... couldn't be happier.

Stock suspension, no spacers.

I had trouble fitting 275/40 (NT01) wrapped over 17x9.5 +15 up front. Kinetix Arm barely got -1.7 up front. Car is dropped 1/2".

Hopefully they don't rub at the track.

Smile MB Battles

Hi all, I have a Black 2006 MT, all stock. I was wondering if anyone has a picture of a black 350z with Gunmetal MB battles. I'm choosing between bronze and Gunmetal. I've searched the forums and only found a bronze, Thanks!
