Default wheel options

I'm looking at maybe getting some 18" wheels for my Aurora, but I'm not sure what would look good on it.. The wheels at tirerack don't really appeal to me all that much, so the "wheel simulator" on the car doesn't really appeal to me all that much. I'm looking at wheels from discount tire right now. these are two wheels that I have taken a liking to..

Price $130 per wheel

Go for option #2. might be a little more expensive, but will look much better.

I like the first ones better. You can probably find someone on here to do a photochop for you if you provide a good side pic of your car. Let us know what you decide.

# 2 in chrome if possible. I see alot of #1' * style these days... seems like every wheel maker is doing one like it , laquered aluminum and black also. #2 has a slight resemble to GXP wheels.

And both great prices if their quality made.

I like the #2s. They're a little simpler and won't detract from the rest of the car any.

I'd go with the second set. It suits the car better. Cleaner, classier, but sporty as well. Here'* a couple quickies (didn't have the mouse for the laptop). You get the idea though
