wheel/tire package
like i have mentioned before i am getting sick of these 15" wheel covers thumbsdown i think it would be dumb to drop over $600 on GTS rims with yokohama's...whats the best wheel and tire combination i could get for $800?? any help would be appreciated!

Either flip through an Import Tuner, browse on ebay, or check tirerack.com. I'd go ebay first.
You could get a good, new set of 16's or 17's for around 500 bucks, but you'll pay about 400 bucks for all four tires, like Kumo Xstas or Yokohama Avids. Please pardon the spelling errors. Look for a used set that have no more than 6 months on the tires. BE CAREFUL. You get what you pay for!

depends on other exterior mods. I think a nice clean aluminum polish looks great.

take a look through the gallery and find some rims you like and try to match it up to something similar in your price range.
