Default Wheel photshop...good or bad?

Just a quick PS. What do you guys think?




Guy is asking $795 but maybe I can work him down a bit. Has a set of brand new Michenlin Hydro-Edge tires as well. Link

I don't know how much those tires are worth.. but I personally don't like the rims at all.

i like em.

rims and tires, not too bad of a price, but if you were to shop around, you will find a cheaper price.

and ive definitely seen worse ps attempts. (mostly mine)

Looks to be about $121.00 a tire at tire rack. I kinda liked the look at first, but now I am thinking they just look like the stock 5 spokes.

I really want some stock chrome pontiac wheels of a GP or Bville GXP but I can't find them anywhere, and if I do they are outrageously expensive...

well considering the tires alone would be like 480, ~300 isnt bad for a good set of rims.

see if you can get em for 700 or less

PS skills: if you're a begineer, good. If you're a expert: it sucks

Rims for that car: Too blah. I believe for our kinds of cars 92-99, sharp contrasts is needed. No curvy schurvy rims.

rims = blah

tires = garbage in the winter, only good for wet traction.... very harsh ride too, i should know...i sell them at work all day long and i try to steer everyone interested in them to the goodyear assurance tripletreds.

I second that . But not bad for a beginner. Don't worry, it'* seems complicated now, it will get real easy and second natured once your start using it quite often and learn about layering and what not.

I like the rims and the tires to be honest.
