What do you guys think?

18" rims with tires. Rims are in 9/10 shape. Tires are new and still have the nubs on them. 5 bolt universal with tuner bolts included.

Low profile Z rated tires 215/35Z/18. I believe they are fusion brand. $500. Good deal? Going on a silver gt.

Wrong tire size for your GA.

The diameter is too small, by 1".

I don't think they'd look terrible. Maybe try and get a deal w/ out the tires.

They look too much like wheels that belong on a civic. Tires are too small also. Just my $0.02

Extra lug holes don't look good in my opinion.

So what would I aim for on an 18" rim? 45's? How about 17"? I still don't really understand how to calculate the proper wheel diamter when upsizing wheels...or downsizing for that matter.


regardless....now im contemplating either drop or rims..but dont want to do both..
i do need new front strut..so maybe get the 2 front struts and springs and call it a day..
i duno...

get 4 struts and springs. 4X4 ftl when you have 18's.

I take it from your avatar you have a silver ga. Id be looking at gunmetal/black/anthricite type wheels for that color. Im not one for chrome or silver on a silver car.
