New Wheels

Hey guys, just wanted to show off my new rims. Got the car in January and I've loved every mile since. Bought it with sport suspension (not sure on the brand, I have it somewhere), sport exhaust (same), cold air intake, short shifter and software. Finally got my new wheels and tires on over the weekend:





On the agenda:
Laser interceptor
Window tints
Angel eyes
Tinted/smoked turn signals
Tinted/smoked LED tails

OP, you like it right? I dont know why you'd give a fvck what these monkeys say or think. If it were up them, every car would have the chinese knockoff ZHP/M3 bumper and CSL rep's, thus rendering the term "customization" contradictory. Enjoy YOUR car the way YOU like it.

sorry man, but it looks like sh*t. Chrome is out, so maybe if you paint em black like others mentioned they might look a little better.

Hah, not exactly the reaction I was expecting. At least I got a couple people to say they liked it. If I'm completely honest the wheels weren't quite what I was expecting but they've definitely grown on me, and yes I do like them. Also, for the record, they are NOT chrome, I promise. I would never put anything chrome on my car. The wheels are Von Max VM7 machined with black accent. They're not that shiny and I definitely think they look different in person. I was originally going to go with something like the TSW Jarama or Beyern Rapp but I read a lot of not-so-great things about TSW. And, tirerack doesn't stock either and I didn't really want to buy from Town Fair Tire...I went in a couple times for a quote and left not wanting to give them my business. The kicker was that the Von Max were cheaper. So I went for it.

Please put your stockies back on. At the very least please paint them all black. Sorry just being honest.
