how long will you be planning on not getting rims on your car when you have the kit? If its not going to be long i would just get the kit first. But if you dont plan on getting one for a while, just get the rims first.

its depends on how aggressive a body kit you get... if you want an aggressive looking kit, get rims first. if the kit is simple, rims can wait.

bodykit, then you can decide what rims look good with the bodykit

usually, when others go the other way around, they can never get something suitable.

I went for a kit first, because I thought "Rims only matter when you're parked & 75% of the time you're rolling." Then before I could paint my kit I got a good deal on rims that I couldn't pass up. So I picked up the rims & then later painted my kit.

rims first it looks retarded with a body kit and no rims, it almost makes the car look like a pimped out car on golf cart rims. rims first!!!

^^ word. Get rims first. Specially since you have a GT so you'll be rolling on LAME GT rims or LAME hubbies. At least the GTS can pass as decent at a glance. Get rims first.

do you have springs yet? cause you need those before getting kit or wheels inorder for it to look right.
