Default Wheel choices (photoshoppers needed!!!) UPDATED!!!!!!

**** Edited with an actual pic of MY car with the recently tinted windows*****

I've been kicking around the idea of some new wheels for the bonnie, and have found a couple that are half-way affordable, anyone have any experience with photo shop to try to put these two wheels on a white SSEi for me? My goal is to have 20% tint on all windows and the black/dark wheels with a polished/chrome lip, I think it would look mean as all get out and strictly business. Anyhow, here are the wheels, both found on discounttiredirect.com, the wheels are 18" if it matters.

Wheel one:


Wheel two:


Pic of my car:




Any assistance with this request is greatly appreciated.

Leave the 17" chromes and get 2001 model year chrome center caps....they look way better then any black or gunmetal rims. Sorry mang, I'm biased.

Either way, good luck with whatever you decide to do. You will be able to fetch a good price is you want to sell your stockers.

Actually, that'* not my car, i found it on cardomain and decided to use the picture only because of the side angle. This is my car, as you can see I've got the simple silver 5 stars, if I did have some chromies I probably wouldnt even be in the market for new wheels:


Anyhow, I greatly appreciate the photoshop corvettecrazy, you da man! I think I like the black ones better than the dark grey/anthracites. I'm going to try to tint my windows today, and have some better pics of my car. Thanks again.

Joe.

Thanks Jim, I got the car back from having the windows tinted today and I think it turned out pretty good, looks much better. I'll take some pics as soon as we have some decent weather. Now comes the hard part, talking the wife into letting me buy some wheels and tires, ouch!!! Thanks again fellas.

Joe.
