I have found a great deal on a set of chrome rims made by Maas.Its the style M52 or maybe the style M53.But for 22X9.5" rims with tires mounted and balanced is $1750 including tax.
Does anyone have thses rims?Please take at look at there site and let me know what yall think.

The M53 is nice, but personally I like the M54 better. Have you considered that one and if so is there a difference in price?

does anyone take the weight of aftermarket wheels into consideration, as far as affecting performance too much etc...just wondering cause i have to see anyone ask about wheels weight around here, not knocking anyone in any way, just curious, as to oem wheel weight, from the SE up to r/t, so that it can be compared against the aftermarket wheel weight, and u know just how much more unsprung weight u are adding and or rotational mass as well..

thanks..

It has been discussed quite a bit on other threads. For instance............

And also what tire size is best when running a 22" rim?
Shane,
The best tire size and most commonly used is 265/35-22. This size does a number of things well:

1. Reasonably low profile while maintaining comfortable ride quality and improving handling.

2. Keeps your speedometer and final drive ratio very close (within 3%) to stock.

3. Gives the right amount of extra width without causing clearance/rubbing problems.

4. It's a common size now and easy to find and get good deals on.
