Default Wheels and other car things.

Hey I'm looking at buying some rims and tires for my 01 SE bonny. I was wondering what you guys think would be a good size. Not 16 cause thats what it comes with and I want bigger. My car is silver so help pick also with color of rims, chrome, black, etc. Also I'm thinking about buying underglow for my car, what you think would be a good color? and are they easy to install?? Thank you

i would go with an 18" silver wheel, not chrome, i dont think chrome looks good on silver cars.. and underglow is all personal preference, i dont think any color is really better tahn any other

myself, i try to keep with an all-red lighting scheme to match the dashboard, but i also like pat'* (1993SLE'*) white underglows

With the underglow, keep in mind that red and blue are illegal to drive with in most states.
Also the 00+ body style doesn't allow you to hide the tubes very well. PontiacDad has a red kit and has had trouble hiding the tubes.

I have a green and yellow scheme...you can probably guess why, hehehehe.

Any install tips? Just bought some LED'* today and I'm not sure about how to get the wires INSIDE my '99. I'm thinking of mounting the control box under the dash beside the steering column - easy to reach and out of the way. I'd prefer NOT to drill holes but, if I must, I must.
