Default What u guys think of these wheels for my car?

My car is a Black GT and it's currently in the body shop having the Roush Wing installed with the Street Scene Gen 1 Front Bumper Cover. It has been lowered and has tinted windows. This picture of the car was taken before the wing, bumper, or lowering.



I think I like these wheels for my car. What do you guys think???

Why not have someone chop them on your car to get a feel of they would look like?

18's will look good....especially since you have your car lowered. If they have a staggered option in a 10" wide, that would be killer, but 8.5" is pretty good too. I wish I had an extra .5" or more on mine.

I thought about going staggered but I like to be able to rotate my tires and I'm going more for a street racer look than a drag racer look. The 8.5 should be wide enough for the 255s shouldn't they?

Thanks, I wish I could sell the factory ones. The tires are like new with only 7k on them but no one will bite on them.

Those are nice. Why not go with the 9.5" option?
I have 9.5" rims front and back and running a 255/45 tire all around. I love the wheels but if I could go back I would go with a wider tire out back .
