Yes that color would be perfect on a white kizashi. You can buy a good aftermarket that is lighter then the sport wheels but it will set you back 1250 Tot 2500 dollars without tyres easily. I have 2forge zf1 18x8 but I know some day I will go to the original sport wheels. If they are avaible 2nd hand..i would try to find them cheap and have them powder coated charcoal Grey for around 300? And they would be like new. My original 18 have minor chips and they are probably never painted after 2011.

I'm running the Speedline (FRONT) wheels from a C5 Corvette, on the front and rear, at the moment. They weight 17.5 lbs! The car's fuel economy went up like 6 mpg's. Crazy

( In this pic, I actually have the 18x9.5 rears on it...but I just took them off and put another pair of 17x8.5's with 235/45's on them.)

What mileage are you currently averaging? The Kizashi isn’t exactly a fuel sipper so that kind of gain is impressive.

And those spokes look like they make for good grab handles for taking the wheels off for tire rotations and the like, lol. Much easier than any of the Kizashi’s OEM wheels.

Well, since the overall diameter is 25.0" (vs. the 26.3" that the stockers are) It did change the overall miles the Kizashi thinks it's driving by a tad. But the (inaccurate) dash display used to say around 26-27 (tops!)---now it says 32.6 to 32.8 mpg. ha

When I do the math myself --- it's getting around 25.5 to 26 mpg --- with traffic (used to get around 21 or so)
