Some of them are ok, but there are so many other rims that i'd choose before any of those. Also lowering before rims ftw...

That F5 and F6 look nice... I don't like rivets personally.

Also, I'm pretty sure rims with lips are going out of style right now in favor of rims that have little to no dish- they look bigger than their deep-dish counterparts. But that only applies if you're interested in staying on top of the current "rim trends."

Anyways, weren't you talking about repainting the car too at some point? If it is a color that would look good with black rims, there may be some other options, too.

its getting repainted and some body mods gettin done. i work at a rim store and the lip rim is in style more then ever. every company is puttin out bigger and bigger lips. and i will be putting 20's on there or maybe 19's up front and 20's in the back. i personally hate black rims so they'll have to be chrome. i want somethin thats chrome and good lookin but not too flashy liek the dubs and tis i like those rims but not on our cars

get the 500's paint-matched to your car - I'd give you a thumbs up for that

edit: actually the 500's or the Ascot would be nice

Skip the paint match. Get some custom red chrome on them instead.

^eh, I finally got my first set of good wheels this past september... man, it makes all the difference. The fit, finish, and quality are worth the price. Obviously Foose wheels will fit those criteria. Besides - they will have value when it comes time for him to sell.

Going with the 19"/20" would look goofy as hell IMO. None of those rims would be my first, second, or third choice though.

Thank you, that set of rims are the nicest on a GA IMO, I'm sure many other people would agree. And as everyone else knows, I'm not a black rim fan either.
