Yeah, thats what the ACR is mainly for, handling. I believe they only have 15" or 16" rims on it, for the Auto-X track.

They may not look 'good,' but they're purpose isn't to show off and look good. They're meant to be light and strong rims to hold up well and be an advantage while racing with them (autocrossing or road courses -- NOT drag racing...). If you look at all the serious competition cars, they all don't have 'nice looking' rims. The only nice looking ones that come to mind are the gold spoked rims on STi rally cars.

I'm not sure that anyone was debating the usefulness of the rims were they? He said they suck.... he didn't mention anything about friction coefficients compared to stock srt rims did he? Or anything about traction, turning, handling or anything else either. Except for the fact that the handling was sick. I just dont like the way they look. I haven't seen the mad rush for everyone here to pick up a set of 16" steelies for the Redline... so I guess looks counts for something huh?
