Keep those rims man!!! I don't know anyone that has those on any car in the GTA either! Itz only 1 year, big deal. You'll rip your hair out after that year passes and you'll be pissed that you sold those nice rims!

320I'S are not fast to begin with. I really haven't seen that much of a decrease in performance after I installed my 18's
