You need to lower the car. The Toque Stars don't look great, but they work. "The Crow" had wheels that fit real nice in the wheel well, giving the appearance of a lower look [I don't think it was lowered.. was it?].

This is the same reason why I do not like 99% of aftermarket wheels. Very few wheels look good on cars, IMO. It needs to "flow." Torque stars give an aftermarket illusion to me. They do not seem to flow with the car'* lines. The ghetto golds on a '93 SSEi, look great. Especially a green one. They flow. The wheels Alex has [beckstyle], they flow with his car. They fit in perfectly. My wheels, they fit with the car, they blend it, making it all look like one piece. The Torque stars do not flow, but more stand out. This is why they don't make me all warm inside when I see a car with one. I'm not saying they are ugly. They are nice rims.. but they just don't "flow." But to each their own. All that matters is if you like them.

Thats how I feel. When choosing rims for my rides in NFSU 2 I always make sure that they flow. Flow before Bling I guess you could say? lol BTW I think your car looks sweet Justin.

Please get back on track regarding Randmans interior modifications this is not about rims.
