new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

Well hey there!

Got me an 06 black cherry XB...love the damn thing... and after my first 2 mods (bright ass HIDs/k&n cold air intake), I realized I need a place to further facilitate my obsession that no one seems to understand. )

Seriously- my coworkers are like..."uh..why would you buy rims, those are hella ghetto".. wtf? Because they're gangsta! good god! I guess coming from a deceivingly ordinary looking white chick(me) this is kind of odd. ehh...

Getting back to the point- anyone know of a local riding club that meets up here and there?

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

WOWZERS! ok ok..i should get on that seeing that I'm a photographer..who works for a camera rental company....constantly surrounded by cameras.....hmmm...I feel so guilty right now.

Yes- will clean, shoot, edit and post!!

p.s. I see that you're a pretty big name around these parts... )
Question for you- I'm going to get rims/tires in the next 2 months...looking at Enkeis or Tenzos...any word on whether one is more favorable?

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

hi! welcome to the site. yes part of norcal balliztik here we let the drama go and just hang out. more often outside of car shows and event than actually at em. we have meets in various places often dictated by where cheap drinks can be found lol. where exactly are you at in the SF bay? what wheels are you looking at exactly? like model and size and such?

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

and youre a photographer? tsk tsk tsk. you better be guilty. jk lol.

not a big name at all. nobody knows me.

okay enkei's quality and finish is good. why not look at Konigs, BBS, Volk/Rays, SSR, OZ Racing. these are all race heritage wheels and all have a great reputation but not always so affordable though. depends on your budget.
tenzo's: you get what you pay for.

you also haveto take into account what type of wheel design you like?

research. good luck.

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

ohhai! Well, I love the anti-drama, chilled out aspect of this club. Totally awesome, and what I'm looking for, esp. since I'm just starting out, and not too terribly confident in my ride. I have a lot of learning to do!!

I'm located in the Daly City/SF region.. how bout you? Do you guys ever meet within 20-30 miles of DC? I'm def. interested. )

So in terms of rims...I'm torn (17s):

TENZO DC6V1 black
TENZO mach 10 black or charcoal
enkei ev5 hyper black

comments?

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

we meet where ever. one of our guys billy (screen name "uprising") is out that way too. no need to be worried about the look of the ride either we stock to fully modded xb's and tc's just all scions in general are welcome

and heres the pics so others know.




in my opinion i like the first set i like wheels with a bit of lip although with the offset of all of em they will be sunk in a bit. it all depends on the look you're goin for

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

Dizam- thanks for the input, I seriously appreciate it!! My buddy has the same tenzo dc-6s on his baby blue miata.... they look sick. I'm leaning that way fasho. ) Here's the thing- I'd like to keep the purchase under $1,200...and I want good quality tires. Plus I'm impatient! Ever since my uncle (higher up @ SF toyota) introduced me to the XB, I have wanted one, and wanted to mod the crap out of it.

Should I just save more to get better rims, or are these "good enough" to not get laughed at? I like em... but I need honesty...

yellow- where do I look for updates/news on balliztik meets?

Re: new SF bay xb toaster pilot- know any local xb clubs?

to be honest, be patient and check out our "members ride" and it may help you decide in what you want. ive went through quite a few wheels till i found what i was looking for.

save the money, and GO BIG.
