your opinions on these rims

here are the 3 rims i have narrowed down too. gimme ur guys' opinions. i have a silver celi with the apr wing and 15 % window tint in the front and 5% window tint in the back. so there is a lot of black on my car. so tell me which ones you guys think would go best.

i am leaning towards #3, since it closely resembles volks te-37s. the motegi rims have a +42 offset which i think works with our celis. also, what kind of tires whould i have with these 17x7 rims? ive read the past posts and ive heard that wheelmax gives you some sorry ass tires. well let me know what i should do to avoid some problems. i blew one of my tires because i guess i made too sharp of a turn on a flat tire, i just around 10psi, so yea, its time to get new tires anyways, so im just gonna get one of these package deals on wheelmax. tell me what you guys think.

The First two rims are very cheap. So I would think the old saying " you get what you pay for" come into play.

i'm not a fan of black rims at all...get one of the last 2. i think i like #2 a little bit more than #3, but they are close.

I'd go with one of the first two. The motegi's are to heavy and will reduce some reaction time. They have a nice look but they're heavy as hell. I switched my motegi's off and the car actually drives better and faster.
