Default wheels, dubs, rims etc... and tires

Ok, I am looking for a website that I can preview selected wheels and/or tires on a likeness of my vehichle. I thought I had seen them before, one site you could even choose the color of the car, to get a better feel of what the wheels would look like on your car.

Anybody know of any website addresses for this?

Also, if you see my car. I have a silver/bluish paint scheme (factory) not sure of exact paint color name. But I also have dark tinted windows all around.

I am thinking of going with smoke or black finish w/ chrome accent type rims. I think the dark colored rims will look nice on my rolling pallete. What do you think?

Also, at the same time, am thinking of going to a 17" or 18" wheel. Anything I should think about in my decision process to this upgrade? Also thinking of changing to a low profile tire, possibly 50'*. Will the larger wheel/tire change my mpg? if so, by how?

One last question, any tips on getting the best price for both rims and tires, is there a "best place" to shop for these either online or brick & mortar store?

Thanks for the input.
