Default Brand - Drag?

So I found some 15' DRAG rims that look similar to the gold rota slips.. What's everyone heard about this brand and what's your opinions? Thanks guys
P.s. I like Rotas but this would save me shipping and $100 on the rims themselves.

Drag is just a knock off, and from what I've heard there is nothing wrong with them

I'm sure you're right Joe but you're link has no pictures so I can't say for sure And Pata, they're on discount tire but a friend of mine gets the hook up there...Like I mentioned, they're cheaper than rotas and would save me shipping costs. At the same time, I want to make sure i'm getting something worth buying

black with a polished lip or black with a polished lip? hmm, i guess black with a polish lip then. lol. just messing with ya. but yeah, gold can be nice on a blue car seeing that blue subarus have some gold rims and look good. its kind of natural to me. but i always love some black rims on civics, especialy black on black. the gold and polish lip are nice rims though. im just telling you what id go for. so pick wisely. its your car.

Yeah yeah, black on gold or black on black...Hmmm female ninja. Too bad they don't have attractive pink rims, any i've ever seen are awful looking. There's a photo shoot for EM1 Crew on the 26th so I should get a move on, we don't want these ugly white things in the pictures!

Both Drag and Rota brands just make copies of more expensive wheels. They're about the same, quality wise, so it shouldn't really matter which one you go with...

So here's the latest...I need black rims. I was quoted $850 for the rims I want, and my gforce tires like I have now. But I think craigslist can beat that price Also, they have to be black because I tinted my windows today so it's only necessary that my car gets turned into a ninja. It was an impulse purchase and the car looks bad ass. Pictures soon

so your not going for the 15" drag dr23 on discounttiredirect.com? because, those with some normal street tires, and i used a seattle zip code for shipping costs, and it came to like $630 total. just trying to save you that extra money.

Will the tires you have now not transfer over to the new wheels?

Yep, the white rims are 17's...The car came on steelies with bald tires, hence why I just through on the pos rims with kick ass tires But now it's time to graduate from 17 to 15's

I know right? I was discussing that the other day with some other EM1 owners! But 15's are pretty clean, and maybe I won't have to get a camber kit afterall
