Help me pick. Which rims do you like better Ultra or Mayhem?

I had a major blowout this weekend.  I had no spare.  I'm converting my 14 inch to 18s.  Which one of these do you like?  The mayhem or the ultra?

I like the Ultras as well.  You guys must have great roads around there.

:plus1:  First thing I thought how many spare wheels.  That low profile and pot holes are not a good thing. For me they make cars truck and trailers look like old horse drawn wagons.  But then I am and old out dated fart.

Mayhem

But, both look great. I wouldn't do that big though. Other thing to consider, the tires flex as you pivot that trailer around, if its a stiff tire its not going to like sharp turns. And those low profile tires would not make 1 season where we live.

Won't you also need to change the fenders if you switch to 18's?

Yes he will or do modifications to the inner fender liner. Even with modifications I don’t think he would get 18”. I did 17” on my old Malibu with fender mod and just had enough room

I ordered a set from boat mate.  Pretty cool, they color match the deal for you based on your vin.

Did you say what you picked?

I like the Ultra better of those two options.  

 

Great photoshop by the way.

Contrarian I guess.  I vote for the Mayhem.  Like how the accent on the spokes flows with the white gelcoat color.

18" can fit with a decent amount of modifications (mine did).  That said, I highly recommend just upgrading fenders, which is what I will be doing this year. 

Oh, Ultra.
