Thanks to somebody here...

I finally decided on a set of wheels. I've been looking since i got my car, and couldn't decide. Just went during lunch and picked up a set of 18" wheels. Im paranoid that they won't be the same diameter as the stock wheel/tire combo. I don't wanna lower it and I don't want a wheel well gap.

here are the wheels. Input requested...what do you guys think? Ugly? I hope they look good.

The picture in my first post was the wrong picture, so i edited it to the correct one, and the picture is the same rim, i just added it...guess i could have left it in the first post.

Codus to you Kevin, maybe I will upgrade mine when the sun is out again. I have the 17" Aero ones that comes as standard but I think the gap at the front set is to big and I hope a set of 18" rims will do the trick.

Post some pics on the car dude

well i got the wheels put on today.
They look good, although they look to me like they may have a polished face. I dunno, had to hurry back to work here.

Either way, i like em. 18" Pictures when i get home from work.

Very nice. Mille Miglia Evo 5s

Satin finish goes very nicely with black car.

Get good rubber to match. Recommend S03s. They come with a rim protector bar. Important feature with nice new rims. Hate to think you curb these wheels in the first week.
