I want to get some better looking wheels for my 01 GT Coupe. I'm debating getting the stock chrometech wheels versus buying some rims.

I'm leaning towards keeping 16's since I just got new tires, however, I can be convinced otherwise.

I'm really interested in pictures of chome wheel sets on vehicles to compare. There's alot of options out there and some of them I imagine looking horrible.

Any suggestions before I proceed?

It's currently a silver paint finish, soon to be painted burnt orange.

If its going to be painted that color, def. go for chrome. And I say go with 18's. You will be dissapointed if you dont, and if part of you wants to go bigger, you might as well go bigger, ive learned dont settle for anything less then what you truely want.

But then what if he wants 20's cuz you are basically telling him to go as big as he wants. Bottom line..if you go with 18's or bigger...it will look stupid without a drop.
I think 19 is the biggest reccommended size for a GA.

Chrome on the ga is a nice choice. I think the best design for a GA is a 5 spoke rim similar to the 077's or thicker like the MSR 5 spoke. Anything fancier looks out of place.

P.S. I'll probably never drop because clearance in the areas I drive is horrible. The most I might do is put on the SC/T body kit to get it a little lower.
