time to buy some rims, need suggestions...

they're going to be 18s. looking for something with slender spokes and not much of a lip. like i want the spokes to go out all the way to the edge of the rim. possibly black w/ polished lip but most likely just silver.

post a pic of what you think would look good on my car along with the name of the rims so i can look up prices and such.

also, i need to know what size tire to go with. i want to match these up with about a 1.5" drop so i don't want the height of the tire to be taller than stock. thanks guys.

Like anything, for me I have to see it on the car b4 I can decide. It's that way with a woman as well, my girl comes up to me all the time with a piece of clothing and says what do you think, I'm like put it on then I will tell you.

I in some ways considerer modin a car like a woman dressing for a night out. tasty every little detail counts. thumbsup

But I think a 5-6 spoke setup would look good on your car, I prefer a little chrome like the stock ones. Also I have to tell you your car looks great stock, be real careful as you could make it look bad. thumbsdown

Get the 5Zigen FN01R-C in bronze. I also know a guy that can hook you up. I'm going to get the FN01R-C in 18's and they only weigh 17lbs! So, not only do they look really good they also don't weigh to much. Also, the 17's weigh all of 16lbs!

My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!
