Well i ordered these off wheelmax.com july 1st and they came in yesterday. The rims look real nice, but i thought it would be a lot deeper by the pictures on their site. they are 18x8.5 with a 35 offset sitting on 235/50/18 michilin tires (sp?) im missing one center cap so I'ma have to call them up about that. but they look a bit better without the center caps.
I'm still debating on getting some springs. But feel free to photoshop it and lower it to help me decide quicker :)
O i didn't wash the E yet, but i was to excited about the rims! enjoy the pix!
They look great! How much did they cost? Any clearance problems at all?

They look really good at stock height, which is surprising. I would have expected a bigger gap. It really sets your Element off.

18s are the only way to go!

Whoa, you have Michelin Pilot Sport summer tires on your E! Good choice, your E must be handling like it's on rails with those tires. Those are like $250 a piece at Discount Tires! On the third pic, does it looks like the front wheel is sticking out past the fender or is your front wheel turned a little bit? Anyhow, the new wheels looks good on your E!
Thanks for the comments guys. I actually bought the tires used for $40 each. they still had lots of thread left and after buying the rims I didn't have much left for tires :)
But yes the tires handle GREAT! Btw I got the rims on sale for $554 shipped and I believe this style is sold out. I'll post pix with the center caps and washed in the next couple of days. thanks again!
