yeah I kinda want the real "clean" look. Ive seen gunmetal wheels and they look like the donut tire wheels from a distance lol (Ive never seen them in real life only in pictures so maybe they look better). But many of the ppl I talk to say that gunmetal looks a lot better on white than white wheels would. Its like half and half. Half say white and half say gunmetal. So I figured Id ask you guys here for your opinions. :)

I dont think that I have the money for bronze wheels :(

So Im trying to make a decision. Im buying some whithin the next week or so but I just cant decide.

i never had gunmetal rims on my car but i had Hypergray 15s. Yes they looked kinda like donuts but IMO they looked very nice and clean. Gunmetal is close to hypergray therefore i think they should look nice.

I'd say go with the gunmetal....white on white is sweet too, but I think the novelty of that combo would wear off quickly....

if someone says that your wheels look like steelies (if you got the gunmetal) then they dont know enough about cars/customizing cars for thier opinion to matter to you.

I appreciate the help guys, I'm still a bit undecided, I saw some gunmetal wheels on this car the other day and they look a lot better than I thought.

I ran across this website though, they have some really good deals. Almost seem a bit too good, I was wondering is this just a good website or is this another one of those too good to be true things.
Take a look, let me know what you think. Almost all the 17's are $599 with tires and free shipping.

thanks again

^is that site a good idea or should I look elsewhere?



I say its a steal... $599 for a whole set shipped. Awesome deal.. Especially the first couple rims.. They have very nice lips, but I believe all these are 1 piece. But they still look good for its money.

thos websites usually have good deals because they dont give you "very good tires" therfveore you pay cheaper. Another r4eason is that they might have discontinued /older models and they sell them for cheaper.
