    found a new Rim I can live with

    these are brand new, just released a few weeks ago
    These are 17x9 -12mm offset
    this is how they look out of the box, Im going to mod
    mine a little because I dont rims with this much black
    on them. After I do my mod, Ill mount them up and take
    some new pics.
    Should have them on by this coming Tuesday

    Thems'll make your VX look very Tonka-ish.

    I likey

    I wonder if you can get them with more offset though.

    They look great, but how heavy are they? They look rather beefy.

    my Cepek rims on it now are 27lbs each
    and these are 31lbs each. If they where alot heavier
    I was going to pass on them, but not too bad.

    Im going to bead-blast the spoke area so the 3 large
    spokes are Silver raw aluminum finish, and leaving the
    windows basically the stock flat black.
    Just how I prefer them, Ill post pics soon.

    Very nice, only thing that I don't like about them is the massive WORX advertisement on the center cap. The center caps are otherwise really cool, I just hate when manufacturers try to turn your vehicle into a rolling billboard.

    Look forward to pics!

    well, once I blast the spokes back to silver
    Im going to paint the cap silver too and the name
    wont stand out so much..I can even see how they
    look w/o the caps on.

    keep in my my Cepek rims have the name too on
    them, after a while you tend to overlook it anyways

    Very cool, aluminum I assume? I really need to get some steel wheels, aluminum and trails do not play well together at all Any update on those LED headlights you got your hands on?

    new rims

    finally got the rims the way I wanted.. for the most part.
    I took the black rims, masked off the areas I didnt want black anymore..
    has them sandblasted (bad move, actually made the finish way too rough)
    In hindsite I should of just had them media blasted for a cleaner,
    less rough finish) anyway, from there I took my pnuematic gasket remover..
    its a round rough scotchbrite pad type pad and went over the rough
    silver finish to reveal the natural aluminum finish underneath. Almost left an
    engine turn finish in the end.
    Mounted them up today and love the results.

    Looks nice! I was close to purchase the WORX Havoc about three weeks ago. There were on special online for about $850 (18 x 9). However, the tires guys recommended against it due to the offset...plus there was a 45-60 day wait for those. See pic attached when trying to see "how it will look". I wanted the flat version of those.
