I like 'em, and Drags aren't the top-of-the-line wheel, but they aren't a bad wheel either. My brother has some 18" Drag wheels on his Sunfire and they are beautiful wheels! They are DR-18 with a chromed stainless lip:

oooo, those look nice :lol: yeah, i know they aren't top of the line by any means, otherwise they wouldn't have been $390 shipped haha. However, I'm still of the mindset that they might be of higher quality than the Exels and Nexos I was looking at it and apparently wasn't meant to have lol.

I got an email update saying that they are supposed to arrive at my house Wednesday. I'm at school, so I will get some pics when I go home this coming weekend. After I get out of school on the 24th, the car will get inspected then I'll get the tires mounted, get the lugs and mount the wheels. woot.

Thanks, bud! I really like your Enkei EV5s. I looked into them, but didn't wanna drop that kinda scratch for them right now. I like this wheel, it fit my criteria, and for $390 shipped brand new I can't complain!

:rofl: touche touche! you got me at my own game :lol: Yeah, I'm really eager to get them on too! My dad wants to inspect it first, and after he does and I'm done with school (2 weeks) they will go on! Then, I start saving for Tokico HPs so I can get the Mopar lowering springs on :rockon:

haha, yes I'm gonna go there despite the fact that my dad will probably want to kill me, if all the hills and potholes don't get to me first! :lol: I think It should look nice with the mild drop. 4x4 stance sucks.

Drag is arguably a cheap wheel, but I'd still consider the quality of them to be better than Nexo or Exel from what I've seen. Hopefully this proves to be true for me. I'm gonna order up some Gorilla lug nuts soon and see if I need some hubcentric rings. I don't know what the center bore of these are.

Fixed that for ya
those are gonna look sweet Ryan!

I'm hoping so! I was iffy about it until I saw them on EckoPlatinum's car and they looked great. Even though his are gold, and 18"s I still think they will look good on my car in gunmetal.

Alright, well I had a paper due at 5 PM so I didnt have much time to get pics of the wheels. I did get two pics though! I was excited to see I got hub rings too! they appear to be brass. I thought I wasn't going to get them because I didn't get the lug nuts

no... they're 18's. read his posts. he bought them so he could use the tires he already had. Can't you tell that they have longer spokes than the pics of the 17s I posted?

Slaw - I guess you could have some adapters drilled for all 100 bolts. I'm not a fan of universal fit wheels, but that's all these came in, so oh well.

Sean - I'm ready to lose these nasty ass 7 spokes!

Thanks everyone! Hopefully they'll be on in a few weeks when I get out of school. I'm excited.
