Those do look more sporty than the old ones. They match the personality of your car more. Now if you would ditch those ugly wind deflectors..... :lol2: Sorry just had to say that. I have always been in love with your car, and it is a turn of to see wind deflectors breaking up the clean lines. I'll keep 3 cents and leave you the change. :D

That was good!!!!! I nearly wet myself after reading that. I guess it was the way you worded it :D

Josh......I got the 149 quote from the website and they were actually 20.00 cheaper once I got to the store. So....I actually only paid 144.99 for them.....and 99.00 each tire. He gave me a good discount for the tires since I bought the rims there. The rims and tires came to like 1058....or near that. I do like the rims though!! They do make it stand out. If I didnt have the stickers then I would have gone with a black powder coated rim.

Pretty much my same opinion. I like the before picture better but then again I perfer chrome over alloy. BUT this is only my opinion and I hope it, in no way, affect how you feel about it. If you like it then :thumb:

Oh no!!!! I dont get mad at people if they dont like them or have negative comments. Thats why I posted the pic here. I wanted to get people's opinion and see what they thought. I do like them alot and I looked at a few different styles before I bought these. Its kinda like buying a car.....you get that "feeling" inside your stomach and thats when you know those are the ones you want. I dont get offensive in any way :D

Those chromies are phat! "17" right? At first I thought they were Cobra Replicas like the ones I got off of Got Wheels. I paid $1407 for chrome with 225/40/18 feet. At least now I really have some idea of what I am dealing with asthetically when mine get here. How much did you sell them for? I like the gunmetal too. Before I came to a decision about which wheel to get, I was going to get the black full faced rims with the polished lip. (Of course they didn't have the fitment) As long as you like it rock on!!

i see clear lenses on the rear, are those originally for the front and you have them on the back(though theyre a LITTLE to small, unless you did some rear bumper work)?

and i like both rims, the car is hot hot hot either way.
Yeah the clear lenses are smaller on the rear :rolleyes: Unfortunately they do not make rear clear marker lights.....so I bought two sets of front clear marker lights and just out them on the back end. When you are u close its noticable but from a little distance its not so bad......well lets just say not bad enough to NOT put them on my car :D
