Going to get some 18" wheels either this week or next week, I don't want to lower my car so want to get an idea of what it would look like. (mines redfire)

thinking either charcoal AMR 18" or machined black AMR 18" or what do you guys think of these? to me they look like the wheels on the s550

Go on TireRack's website and put in your car and color. It will be able to show you what a number of rims, in various sizes, would look like on your specific model/color.

Just lower it buddy. Steeda Sport springs will work miracles without ruining ride quality or throwing anything out of whack.

If you're not going to lower it, it will look better with taller, wider tires.

I resisted for years to lowering mine. Well after 4.5 I finally did it and man what a improvement. Get the wheels then drop it Razor.

thanks for all the input guys but I have decided not to lower the car, I know it will look a million times better if I did but I don't want to.

As for the rims, i will go with 18" Charcoal AMR

only problem is I'm stuck trying to decide 18x8 or 18x9 - 18x10 is too wide for my taste

which do u prefer and why?

which would look better for a stock height? 18x9 or 18x8?

(i want all 4 to be same size)

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I like the 18x9's with 255/45's because the tires width range on the 9" wheel makes for a good balance between ride quality and handling.

This was my reference when I first selected wheels and tires for my car...

I have 18x9 with 275/40r18, I love the wide look and the extra tire on the pavement.
