Default 18" rims for '04 SE?

I've been looking on TireRack this afternoon. The best looking 18" rims I've found so far are the moda R8s, ASA JH8s.

The URL for a pic of my style Bonnie w/ ASA'* is:

Check 'em out and LMK what you think... THANKS!

Jim,
Not sure whether I would like the polished chrome or regular. My car is "light bronzemist", so I'm not sure how chrome would look -- too washed out... too much like bling-bling... not sure. BTW, I'm a 42yo family man, so bling is not my thing. However, I DO want some nicer rims than what came on the car.

Here'* a really poor shot the dealer took before I bought the Bonnie...

Default Some choices for 18" rims [Four pics posted]

Here are some of the choices I found and then quickly edited onto my car using Paint Shop Pro. The front wheels were slightly turned (inward), so these are NOT perfect. However, you'll get the idea of what they look like. Let me know your thoughts, please. THANKS guys!


Moda R8


JS5


Minardi Z18


Kazera Dual PCD

Inox were mine too before I wound up getting more interested in going fast than in looking good.

I would like to say chrome looks great on Bronzemist.But you should pick the wheels
that make you want to keep your car clean. It took me awhile to find the right wheel
that had everything I wanted in a rim. So good luck in picking a wheel.
