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

Really? You think chrome is overused. Well have you ever seen a silver SSR with the chrome wheels. I thought they were BEAUTIFUL Hey, whoever said that the rims I've chosen might not go too good with my Bonnie, yes at first I thought the same thing but I went to www.tirerack.com and tried on different rims and found one similar to the one that I want, it looks nice. Honestly, I can't believe you guys don't like chrome, I mean on lighter colored cars. That'* a disappointment. Hey, when I do attend a meet, you can harass me about my rims. I personally like them. It'* what the wise Jack said," Hey, if it'* what you really want go for it. It'* what makes it your own style right?"

Not sure how much money you are looking to spend, but if you have the money to get new tires too, I would definately look into getting 17'* or 18'*. IMHO, they are the perfect size for a bonne.

nice looking rims, should look tight on your ride, i also think 18s fill the cars out a little better, im partial to black rims on light cars tho, as you can see in my sig


EDIT: to add, when looking at rims also try to keep in mind how easy they are to clean, IMO, nothing worse then spending hours on end with small brushes and finger throbing work for your rims to look good for a few days
