I'd say get what you like and stands out to you. I would go with 18 or 19's, 17's are way to small as you can probably notice right now. I like the look of bright silver or whatever they call it finish against the AW, it looks :pimpin: when clean. I wouldn't go for chrome but that's just a personal thing. It depends on how much you wanna spend too...

Get breyton imagines, check out tire rack , you can see the wheels on your car.

p.s.

don't sell your stock rims, if something happens to your new ones (like bending them), you'll need back ups. just my .02

18" is a good size... not too big, but big enough!

i think the hamman hm2s would look very nice on your car, it would give it a very clean look!

next mod..
 
I'd say your next mod after rims should be an H&R Cup Kit for sure. It really puts a spotlight on your wheels.

what's a cup kit do??

platnumn 07-18-2004 03:46 AM

its a combination of springs/shocks that lower your car apprx 1.5in and stiffen the suspension a bit.

what makes cup kits so ideal is the fact that you do not have to buy individual springs and shocks, because the kit comes ready to mount with both included.

Good luck, that is my favorite colour.
