Rims ideas?
 
3 Attachment(s)
Just got bored and looked around at some rims. Opinions on these? Really trying to decide on doing all black or black with some white. Any other suggestions? Or wanna show off your own?

kinda personal preference when it comes to rims, i think on a black GA those 6 spokes look nice. i love 5 spokes but the GA's can get away with 6 spokes IMO

rims are really your opinion, its what you like first, and what others like/dislike second. but who cares what other people think, its what you like and thats all that matters. :)

im not trying to trash talk, but my honest opinion is i dont really like em, if i had to choose, id go with the first one. but thats just me.

yes i know there is some paint on the rotor, i repainted the calipers with this lighter blue 3 days before this pic. lol

when I look at rims 1 thing I look at is weight. i prefer a lighter wheel.

also correct me if im wrong, but i dont think that is white but rather chrome. there are not a lot of rims with white paint, but you could have them painted if you want.

oh, i also prefer a basic wheel. Im not a fan of complex deisgns...

Yeah I meant chrome lol my bad. Im having a black and white theme on my car is the only reason I'm thinking about the black and chrome kinda rims.

Of those three you posted, the first one is okay but not really my taste, the second is pretty decent but that third set looks absolutely terrible.

Honestly, the Grand Ams have enough "style" with the ribbing on the sides and bumpers that some of the flashier styles of rims make the car look too busy and it doesn't flow well. Your best bet is to stick with a simple mono or two-tone design with solid colored 5 or 6 spokes. Unfortunately, there are very few of these tasteful choices available on the more popular rim websites like Tirerack lately.


I suppose I should add that this is just my opinion when it comes to rims. Choose what you like but be sure it's something you'll like for quite some time since rims are expensive and an ugly set can detract from the car's entire appearane no matter how nice the rest of it is.

yea that was my car. Sold it back in 06. Those rims were Koenig Tantrum, but they have been out of production for a few years. I know that a few companies have made similar ones but those all have two bolt patterns (10 lug holes) rather than the 5 on these.
