You got a ton of choices and ideas here - a lot of EC members upgrade with aftermarket rims. I have a GTS with the premium wheels, so the rims are tolerable in that they reasonably flow w/ the car. I've never been a big fan of the GT and 15" stock rims you have though. spineyes

This color will look good also.
The color contrast Red and Dark, like on Isaac's car looks good... thumbsup

Post a couple pictures of wheels that you are thinking about and maybe we can give you some other ideas once we know what you like.
I have a post like this also right now. Some people might say "It's your car, you decide which wheel you want", but it's just nice to see what other people think sometimes.

Forgot to tell you that every red car with white wheels have had people say "man, get rid of those white wheels". I too, hate white wheels.
