I remember a few years ago I saw on a forum a fully modded Infiniti G35 with forged Volk rims and, guess what? Wearing Nankang tire.
My point is, if every bit counts, go for broke and get full forged wheels and lightweight exhaust since they are both expensive anyways.
I get your point, but you missed mine. It's not just about affordability, but if you're spending money for "performance" anything, then the money is better spent on something that gives you true performance enhancements. I've heard an M3 with a muffler delete and it sounded as good as an Meisterschaft race exhaust, droned less, and shaved more weight. I don't know about you, but if I can get the sound I'm looking for without spending a ton for it, why not?
Meisterschaft or Stoptech BBK? Which would be your choice?
