I am interested in purchasing the 18" Lexani R-Six wheels from carid.com for my Cruze. Does anyone on this forum have these or know of a picture where I can see what they look like? Has anyone purchased wheels from carid.com? It appears that they are blanks that are drilled to fit our bolt pattern. I am wondering if they are drilled by Lexani or by carid? The site says they are the "lightest wheels in the market".

Thats why I have a photoshop thread- post up a picture of each over there and when I get a chance, I'll put them together for you.

Will definitely do that. Appreciate it.

And when you're done, change the color of his car to black granite ;)
:) My last car was black. I promised myself I would never own another black car. Way too much maintenance. Nothing beats them when they are clean/polished/washed, but they show the slightest imperfections/dirt so bad they usually aren't.

These are the exact wheels (silver w/stainless steel lip and black label cap) that I'm going to order on 5/7. I've been talking to a rep (Manny @ext. 889 he knows his stuff) @carid and asking a ton of questions... I know that Lexani forges/cuts/drills the wheels to your specs...tell the rep what size tire you want to run and how you want the tire to fit in the wheel well and he sends that order to Lexani and they build the wheel from that info. No need to figure out offsets or measurements or anything, they take care of all that. I'd recommend when you order, to talk to a wheel rep and have them place the order, don't depend on the online ordering form. It's too much money to take any chances IMO. Hope this helps.

Not a big issue for me because my car never gets dirty, just dusty. Plus I get unlimited car washes if it does. Sometimes I wish it was jet black although i'm very happy with the granite.

Do you mind posting the details including size, offset, tire and price you were quoted? I have a few wheels in mind and ultimately will depend on price.

I'm going to use a 245/45/18 tire with the R-Six 18X8 wheels, offsets can vary depending on the wheel/tire choice and how you want the tire to sit in the wheel well, I told the rep that I wanted the tire to sit flush like the stock tire. I've not actually ordered the wheels yet, so the rep at carid could not tell me exactly what the offset is going to be, he did say that all that info would be available after he sends the order to Lexani. I forgot to mention in my prior post that it could take up to a month to get your wheels delivered. In some cases even longer. For me this is not a problem, I've been waiting for a year plus for the "right" wheel to come along, so a month wait will not be a deal breaker for me. As far as price $1192.00 delivered (with free install kit and the delivery charge)...not cheap I know, but forged wheels are not the cheapest way to go if you are on a tight budget. Oh yeah, as far as tire make Goodyear or BF Goodrich, haven't decided on that just yet.

Thanks. Not a bad price if it includes tires which I assume they do. I want 19's so i'm sure it will be close to 1500.

Can't wait for pics. But for $1500, I better get 2/3 piece with mad lip.
I've always liked the no/low lip one piece designs....I like this wheel because it is simple and not a 5 point star design and the 8 and 10 point designs are a bit busy for me ... the R6 is a little different but not too crazy. Pics to follow...could be a bit of a wait though...(up to 4 weeks before wheels arrive)

The design looks ok except for the center lug cap. Reminds me of wheels from late 80s. I prefer exposed lugs.
I had some 20's on my Cadillac with a similar cap. I like the look of open lugs also, but this design may have saved my life. I had 3 broken lug studs I may not have noticed if I had not heard them rattling around inside...
