enkie evos

Im looking to upgrade from stock rims on my 02 wrx. I don't want to spend too much. I like the enkei evo 5's and evo 6's and they are in my price range. Any body have any experience with these? Do they bend easily? I live in new york city so there are a lot of potholes around. Are 18's a bad idea? also what tires do u guys recommend?

Depends on what you "do" with the car for the rim size and type of tire (no need spending an arm and a leg for these things if you don't autox, drag, whatever......). Just normal day to day driving?

yeah, my car is completely stock. I just drive to work and around town, no track racing or anything like that.

If you're in NY then maybe a decent tire for rain traction and maybe snow ?? All on the street I presume ?

If you're worried about potholes, then you may want to seriously consider 17 inchers. That way you'll have a bit more tire sidewall to absorb those jolts.

I have the evo 5's 18 inches and live close to chicago and it is pot hole HEAVEN. I proud to say I have survied a half of year. I have hit many unvoidable potholes due to traffic no dents or cracked rims so far knock on wood they are very sexy I get complements all the time too. I have nitto invo tires which are sticky as hell in rain and dry but I throw my stockers during the winter though.
