Thats a little pricey, and the start at 22"s

But those arent 22"s on the box. They must run about $1200 per wheel for 18"s.

Hahaha! Jim photoshopped those wheels on his box after someone posted pics of that Z about a year ago.

The Phoenix doesn't have a five lug conversion... Yet!!

*Edit* Matty, you're quicker than me!!

Those rims will stay clear for exactly two stops before they are stained with brake dust and scratched by something.

Cool idea though. But I wouldn't run them on our cars. Who would want to see our tiny brakes?

Its gotta get hot too. There is not circulation to the brakes from the outside. You know they say the stock steelies wear out the brakes much faster than the alloy ones do.

would be neat if they were lit from the inside with a spinner on them. otherwise, they really show how ugly dirty brakes are. How embarrasing

Their's plenty of room on the scion to fabricate brakes ducts. Though there is no way you could keep those clean.

Even with the hardest of the hard ceramic pads...

Unfortunately rotors eventually rust too...

They are pretty badass anyway. Almost worth buying a truck to tow your car around in so that they don't get dirty!
