Default You like these rims?

Hey. I'm shopping for new rims for my 1999 Bonnie, she needs new rims. Well she doesn't really need them but it is like a christmas gift to myself. I hope this link works and the specs are 16x7, 40mm offset (is that compatible with the bonnie) and 5x115.

Hey guys,

My car is silver. I think silver and chrome go together nicely. The chrome trim on the side looks good with the silver color, that'* where I decided to get chrome wheels. But that'* my opinion, apperently other think that chrome should be reserved for dark cars. I've seen some silver cars with chrome wheels and they look nice.

I'm personally sick tired of painted finishes so that is why I want chromies.

i have the complete opposite opinions as you. i think chrome is overused these days, and i think it looks better on darker colors.

But thats what we are all entitled to here on BC, opinions.

I think it all depends on the individual car really. If you like the chrome, go for it. I've been paying special attention to rims on cars lately. If I might make a suggestion though? Look at machined or silver painted rims too. I think they're more subtle and just as show stopping as chrome.

Edit: The spokes look AWESOME!.
