what's a better deal here?
what do you guys think I should go with here? I love both of these rims and I can't decide. Matrix shadow 17's with 235 40 17 tires or helo slick chrome rims with 205 40 17 tires. the 205 are a lower profile aren't they? either set is going to cost me about a $1000 so I need some input, my car isn't dropped but I do have a molly designs kit also. I am also interested in if the chrome rims will way a lot more?

I like the chrome ones myself. They will be heavier though, if that really matters to you.

if yoru getting 235/40/17 it better be 8 inches wide.

if you get 205/40/17 then a 8 inch wheel is too wide.

and no 205 is not the profileit is the width. 40 is the series(PROFILE) it is the height in percent fo the width. i . e. 40 percent of 205 etc.
