First link isn't working for me. Second wheel looks a little too bling for me, but I've seen worse. Those rivet holes will be a beyatch to clean though!

You drive a Grand Am, not a Mercedes... I will laugh at you if you get $2000 worth of rims for it.

Stick with the 5 star style though, but try to find something with a lip so you don't trash the face of the rim on a curb (especially if they are $400+ rims)

You have connections to get them cheaper?

Take a look at tire rack, discount tire, jdwheels, or many of the other hundreds listed in the sticky in the wheels/tires section.

I will say, JDwheels is awesome, their website is pretty lacking, but they have awesome customer service and will price match. And when spending this kind of money, good "Customer Service" is key.

I want to stick with the five star style. I don't want them to take over the car though. I don't want it to look like I paid more for the rims then the car! You know, it's a friend of my brothers who is getting me rims so I have to talk to him about the price when I find some that I like. I just ask you guys cause you have the same car. But you all are right I don't want rims that overtake the car

Just take a look at some of the big wheel/tire places and you can get a pretty good Idea what is out there.

It's clear by the brands you are looking at that you want "baller" rims. Yet, you say that you don't want the rims to be more than the car is worth. If this is true, then stop wasting your time with Giovanna and other high maintenance rims!!

I am not picking them by brand. I see what I like not what brand they are! It just so happens that the rims that I have picked so far have been up there and I didn't even know, so I am not picking "baller" rims on purpose! Anyways I have a couple different rims in mind.

Thats why I said you need to look at the other distributors out there, your looking at places that sell only highend wheels.

Like I said earlier I am NOT (I hope that is clear) picking them by brand I have seen some rims that I liked in a catalog and asked your opinion. I wasn't asking about price or brand just how they would look on a grand am because they did look like they might be a little too much. I wanted to get an idea of what style would look best that's it! And I have noticed that I like the five star best.
