I saw these and reminds me a little bit of the honeycomb wheels plus someone had a set on their sonic.

Noticed that they were 5x100, which got me thinking about my x-11.

would they fit and which tires would work well without rubbing? Don't want to worry about hitting a pothole in Pittsburgh and damaging the wheels (Saw a Hemi jeep with 20" wheels with run flats that look like hell after a few months).

I like that second site, but myself, I'd find rims on ebay/craigslist/etc, if I had an interest.

I prefer to stay within OEM tire size, in regards to the width. Wider tires can cause hydroplaning sooner, and in winter months with snow/etc., lots of needless sliding around.

Those are actually pretty sweet! Inspired by the Porsche 935 BBS wheels of course:

The offset seems low, but with how much wider they are to stock that might actually be right. Not sure if it will stick out the sides or have rubbing issues since they are 3" wider than stock.
