So I have these rims in my garage....didn't know if I'd like them so I quick photoshoped them on my ride....

What do you guys think? Should I sell them or get some new rubber and pop them on they are (18 x 7.5) - any recommendations on new summer only rubber?

NEW - Red rim ( I liked the look of the Volks in another tread here - so I toyed with painting the silver lip)

Yeah, Tint is coming next week ;D

Well I had these rims from my old car, so I didn't really wanna buy new ones, performance parts have priority. So I either put these on, or keep the stockers....so there's nothing really to compare them to.... :p

Poll added, good thought... 8)

what rims do u have on right now? if u jus have the 17's i would switch them out for the ones u had left over from your car, and save the money and do some performance upgrades. The only cosmetic stuff i would waste money on is tint.

I don't wanna get too off topic, but has anyone seen a tire with a red line... kinda like white walls with red instead. And not thick. It's a small red line all the way around. I wanna know opinions and if anyone thinks it would look good.

I have a Tornado red with 18" Huffs..

I think those rims would look a lot better than factory. I wanted to have the pinstripe done of my rims too, but to stack an additional $500 on top of what I'm already spending...just couldn't do it. :'( Put those TSW's on your car, don't get a red stripe on the tire, just have the rims pinstriped!

Yeah, I have a hookup at a body shop, I haven't gotten it priced yet, but if it's 200+ for the sripes I won't do it, and I'll just slap the wheels on...as is with some new rubber. I would never consider it on the tire....not my style. 8)

Maybe he'll give me more of a discount if I have him paint the Rieger Rear Apron with the rims......I'm so go'n broke...damn cars... ;D

Mod's can close this thread, I sold the wheels.

Next stop - winter tires, then a set of 18's for next summer.......(too much performance stuff to buy this summer to afford it all 8)
