I would have to see the pic of your car tell if they look nice, but I will say I like the rim

Those are good advice, guys. Now you have made it harder for me. Now I'm doubting myself. I AM going to get new rims after the christmas daze. (meaning maybe the second week of Jan) I thought about gettng bigger rims and tires but I live in Ohio and moving to New York in the fall, those are notorious for killer potholes so I kinda want to stick with 16'* for enough rubber to cushion. I may be mistaken. I'm just assuming.

You think black would look good? Yes I think so too but I'm afraid it'll attract too much attention. I don't know, Ohio Patrol are ****** here, they pay attention to everything. How anal are they? Enough for me to not to wash my car, because I'll blend in with other cars. I mean honestly, if you were on the side of a highway, which one would you notice the most? A dirty car or a gleaming car? (assume it is winter) or a car with chrome rims or a car with black rims. (assume it'* summer and the car is gleaming)

Plus those rims are only 480 bucks. If you have other rims that you think I would like, please do give me names or post a link

Much help is greatly appericated

Well, I looked online at sears. I found several rims that I thought would be good potential. Just tell me yes, NO WAY, or maybe. Try to imagine them on silver Bville.

And much apologies to all who wants to see my car, I'm experiencing difficulites with the computer.

Here are the links:

I kinda like this one above.

I'm not sure if this above link will work

Honestly the first ones you picked were pretty sharp, although If I had a silver ride I'd go with the very 3rd one on that last list.
I think what matters most though is what you want and what your wallet, or credit score, says you can buy

I was looking at the SSC Type 28 a while back -Sears had them on sale for something like $300 for the set in 16x7 5x115mm, but the store was closed for the day when I got there and then I had to leave early the next morning for North Dakota and when I came home 5 days later the price was back up to over $500.

I prefer the SSC Type 28 over any of the other rims.

Yeah I really like the type 28. But I'm going to one of the local rim shops and check out the pricing on the black one. Mid-State Tire shop I believe sells American Racing rims so I'm going there after the christmas rush. Then maybe Bob Sumerel. We'll see when it'* the new year.

So let me know which one you would pick regardless of your car'* color then I'll decide what I'll pick and inform you guys
