Are thr any other rims other than tat that helps both in speed and handling for RX7?

Everything else helps, but Shotguns help the best ;)

Looks like im sticking with the 8 spokes for this one.

I have shotguns on my hi-ace and it handles pretty well.

Thanks for the help :D

I am a qualified dresser here. pls pm me if you want any help.

For your case, you can try rays superior EX rim but have to use a stock body cuz the rim is too heavy and grip.

Thx for asking. ^_^

Hi all

Which rims provide the most stiffest handling (not slippery)?

Enkei JS+M, RS+M, Shotgun, Stellar, RPF1 or others not listed?

JS+M works well on my RX-8. Stellar works ok on my Evo 8, but slower acceleration and speed drop a lot during corners.

Any idea?

Thank You

This thread has been posted like half a year ago...so I don't think the person who started this thread would bother updating it (since it is already known what are all the rims which appear in WMMT)

Anyway...referring to your question: Just choose any rims which visually appeals/eye candy for you...remember this anecdote: "Dress-up Does Not Affect Performance"

All I know is the following items that will affect the performance :

1) Rims
2) Bonnets
3) Wings
4) Mirrors

Stickers, neon tubes and name plates are just for decorations only. B)

Dressups do not affect performance.
You want more grip? Select one more bar of grip.
You want more power? Select one more bar of hp.

I don't know. Some days I believe it does affect; others I dont.

Like today when I played so bad I thought it was my setup because I changed it just before playing.

Enough said, dare.

Only the ones who really put in effort to set up their own cars will know wat I mean.

If u still believe that change dressing parts won't affect its performance, then so be it.

Different people have different views lo.

Agreed on certain areas. Shotgun rims are best when your cars is of pure stock and not other aero set bodies, period. ^_^

Tat will depend on whether you have put the correct aero, the correct rim, the correct bonnet and the correct wing.

Most of us will think that pure stock is good, but not for all cars.

If you need help in your parts, pls sms here.Thx.
