the Foose were a great option, but sadly i cant get them in 115 and high offset
the Gianelle have too much silver
i had the thought of chrome stock GXP wheels they are 225 a piece brand new, but chrome is gonna throw off the look of my car and also i'm back to stock look
call me a retard, but i'm getting the same wheels again... i cant find anything better

ahahaha ******* LOL

well heres why i sold them, i bought them for 1300 last year, sold them for 1860 bought them again for 1430, and the extra money i used it towards my second 13TW5 driver. which cost me 340 which leaves me with an extra 100 bucks to go towards my box

its all business now i have the rims listed again for sale for 2000 as brand new, if i have someone interested illl sell them again and buy another set

and while searching and what not, look what i found

Hard to find an aftermarket chrome that will take anykind of abuse without fail. Itz easy to say you will keep up with them, much harder to to do when you live where it'* cold and snowy almost half the year. The chromes in my siggie sit in the shed. Ruined in 2 winters of not polishing and salt. Anybody need a boat anchor, I got 4 for cheap.

well the problem with me is i hate anything with a lip and sticking out, id rather have it facing the inside than having the hub pointing out. i just think it looks stupid with high offset.

the rims i sold believe me when i tell you they are BRAND NEW, i took very good care of them and took them off first day snow came down and washed them really good. and i will be doing the same with the new ones coming, i guess i'm just too scared to ruin the look i already have.

so V i'm assuming you're running your stock rims?

Black with the black and red look best. Chrome looks sooo bad. I have never understood the fascination with it. Sure back in the day, 50s and such, chrome was IT. But now it'* only real on wheels and i just don't like that much shine on wheels.
