The old rim guide wasn't getting updated any time soon, and it was all in one post, so pictures wouldn't be able to be included. So I'm completely re-doing the rims guide complete with the original notes, pictures, and ☆Maeda☆'s comments from the WMMT website. Enjoy the revised edition of the rims guide.

Credits to RIT_ninja for the original guide, Xeoreg & Geo☆☆ for information on the rim color unlocks, and Namco's website for the pictures

NT03 + M Dress up level - 6
used for endurance and for heavy cars
recommended for GT-Rs

This wheel excelled in endurance races and touring car races. Even though it is a slender fin type wheel, it is also appropriate for heavyweight machines. In fact, it used be used with the Skyline GT-R in endurance races.
The brace ring around the inside of the wheel lets the wheel endure high G-forces. The brace ring is also used effectively, as it improves the wheel design.
Colors available: White, Silver
-------------------------------------------------------

TARMAC WRC EVO LIMTED EDITION FORGED Dress up level - 10
best match for the Lan Evos

This wheel says nothing but everybody understands when they see its five beefy spokes that it was forged through harsh rally stages that require strength.
This is the most appropriate wheel for the Lancer Evolution.

Colors available: White
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/4830/jsmlh9.jpg)
JS + M Dress up level - 15
lightweight and brake-friendly
recommend for Silvia or MR2 or mid-weight class cars

The five slim spokes will help you get a taste for the weight saving and good radiation performance of the brake. Don't overlook the color! Black is really rare in the Wangan Maxi games.
Because it is slim and light, we highly recommend you use it for middle sided sports cars such as the MR-2 and Silvia.
Colors available: Black, Silver
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/9784/rpf1wi9.jpg)
RPF1 Dress up level - 19
design for feedback, lightweight and very stiff
the design and varieties of colors best matches any car for appearance (rice)

The design of wheels used in the top racing fields was fed-backed to the stock cars. Quality oriented light wheels with a high level of stiffness.
The twin spokes make these wheels seem light under foot and nimbler than wheels with the usual six spokes.
The color variation is also superb; you can easily find the color most appropriate for your car.
Colors available: Silver, White, Brown
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/1306/rsmbo9.jpg)
RS + M Dress up level - 29
very stiff and solid handling

Wheels inheriting Enkei's traditional seven-spoke design. Since the spokes are joined at the exterior edge of the wheel, they look larger than the actual wheel size.
You may think it is too slim at first sight, but each spoke has an enhanced rib, realizing high stiffness that feeds-back straight to the steering.
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/3857/rct4qv9.jpg)
RC - T4 Dress up level - 35
recommended for Imprezza-based cars

Racing wheels full of Enkei's techniques for sports wheels. The fact that it has been used for racing cars in many races proves its true power.
This wheel is most appropriate for racing cars such as the Impreza.

This heavy hitting popular wheel is a milestone in sports wheels in Japan.
It is no exaggeration to say that the history of Japanese light-weight forged wheels began with this wheel.

VOLK RACING GTM Dress up level - 12

midweight wheel, very strong
recommended for Celsior or Aristo (Ricer wheel)

A dish type wheel. This wheel is not light, but the pierced bolt and metal plating make for a glittering appearance, and the large and heavy spokes bring unrivalled luxury and forcefulness power.
This is the most appropriate wheel for big sedans such as the Celsior and Aristo, where appearance is as important as functionality.

Colors available: Silver, Black
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/5901/versusgabbanapl1.jpg)
VERSUS GABBANA Dress up level - 31

just a Ricer wheel, looks great for "royal" cars

A beautifully sculpted wheel with an Italian design feel.
If you are particular about appearance, and are looking for wheels that don't have toneless spoke design, this wheel may be made for you.
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/3626/volkracinggtckl1.jpg)
VOLK RACING GT-C Dress up level - 37
good grip? (maybe)

A wheel reproduced from earlier masterpieces using cutting-edge technology.
The characteristic shape of the spokes is still fresh even now. Many of the cars at the time this wheel was released were equipped with this wheel, so if you are a middle-aged ex-metropolitan highway runner and used this wheel, you should select this for your car.
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/9036/versusbl10sxtu4.jpg)
VERSUS BL-10 - SX Dress up level - 41
a Ricer wheel for Sedans such as Celsior or for Hi-Ace

This wheel has irregularly shaped fins that you seldom see in Wangan Maxi, however the twisted fins bring abundant surface composition.

-------------------------------------------------------

great looks with Hi-Ace body kit C

This wheel fits the upbeat atmosphere of Cal style in the West Coast. You must be a stylish racer because selecting this wheel means that you even care about the color of the attached ring.
You should use this wheel with the High Ace Aero Set C.

Colors available: Red, Blue

lightweight and attractive
this wheel matches with varieties of cars in terms of looks and handling

(IMG:http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/1823/superadvanracingver2jp6.jpg)
SuperADVAN RacingVer.2 Dress up level - 5
the "three clawed" wheel, famous for the R32 back in MT2 is now pitifully a RICER wheel

This militantly-designed SuperADVAN is the representative of Advan wheels.
The ultra characteristic triple spokes are expressive creations that have great style.
There are a variety of colors available and you can use this wheel in combination with any type of car. This is a standard of Advan wheels.

Colors available: Silver, Gold + Silver Lip, Black + Silver Lip, Blue + Silver Lip, Red + Silver Lip, Matte Black + Silver Lip
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/1506/avsmodelt5pj5.jpg)
AVS MODEL T5 Dress up level - 9
wheel that helps reduce car's weight, this wheel is lighter than stock wheels

A five-spoked wheel. By using twin spokes, this wheel not only looks lightweight but makes real weight savings.
The expressive power of the spokes as they draw an arc into a three-dimensional world is also quite magnificent.
Colors available: White, Bronze, Silver, Gunmetal
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/3511/avsmodelt6sc5.jpg)
AVS MODEL T6 Dress up level - 13

AVS MODEL T7 Dress up level - 18
a Chaser ricer wheel

-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/4967/advantciisg4.jpg)
ADVAN TCII Dress up level - 21
lightest yokohama wheel, very stiff

Although this is a one-piece wheel, it is the lightest and stiffest of all Yokohama wheels, thanks to its original hollow technology.
This is a time-proven wheel used for many famous tuned cars.
Colors available: White, Bronze, Silver
-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/9220/advanrsfu0.jpg)
ADVAN RS Dress up level - 27
lightweight design
for European looks (I guess, since Gemballa has their own set of wheels)
this wheel is kind of half handling (lightweight), and half Rice (Eur appearance)

Intrepid ten-spoke design.
The design of this wheel, with its many thin spokes that maintain excellent stiffness throughout the rim/wheel, gives us a taste of the never-ending challenge to save wheel weight.
These wheels come in many sizes, and can be used with European cars.

-------------------------------------------------------

(IMG:http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/2850/advanrgiibj8.jpg)
ADVAN RGII Dress up level - 39
this wheel is used for grip (maybe)

RC II, the leader of the fighting Advan wheels. Nothing unnecessary is to be found in the shape of this wheel.
All "battle-planes" on the ground should use this wheel.
"Maeda" used the old-type RG (Gold) in real life, and he remembers it with pride.

Black Enkei Forged and Black TE37's do not exist.

This thread isn't about what colored wheels you WANT, it's about what wheels are in the game.

Please don't try to confuse other people here...

Swapped my Evo8's Gabbanas for RC-T4 - I like the lighter weight of the RC-T4, but am aching for the handling of the Gabbanas. This statement isn't contradictory - my analysis is the Gabbanas are heavier and less push-resistant than the RC-T4s, but the RC-T4s have better accel at the cost of push-resistance (weight).

Would you like to write up a complete analysis for me for every rim tested on every car?

I only posted what data I did have, and RIT_ninja's information pretty much covers it.
