Default Getting new wheels, your ideas?

Hey guys, I was wondering who would like to give their opinions. My car is in sig, and I am currently in need of new tires. They are almost to a point where I wouldn't want to drive on them for safety purposes. Sooo, here we go. I'm heavily considering 18in Black Fr500s, most likely 18x10 out back for the sex[:-]. The original option was to keep my stocker bullits up front, and order 17x10.5 DD Anthracitic Bullits out back, also for the sex. I got the tire situation under control, I just don't know what to do for wheels. I'm doing full suspension as my next mod after wheels most likely, so the drop is yet to come. If you feel that something else would look better on my car, please go ahead.. any style or color, w/e YOU think. Oh and please.. don't hang me, I know this isn't one of your insane tech threads

I'm not sure how I'd like black wheels on such a dark colored car. What about chrome or silver 500s? I think the wider bullits in the rear would look good but, myself, I'd want 18s all the way around.

I think you should put in for a chop with black and chrome 500s and see what you think after seeing it.

I thought about that very thing. I have always loved chrome Saleens, but they're kinda to common. Chrome usually looks nice on DSG or darker colors, IMO it makes the metallics more noticable. But then again, black just looks good. The only chrome I would go with would be Saleens. Keep 'em comin' boys.

I would just go with the anthracite10.5" DD bullitts. They match the car and will look reallygood.
Then you can use one of your old one to make into a full size spare like I did.

i think black saleens would look sick on you car. Look at IROLLSALEEN's car, i believe its the same color but a cobra but the rims look sweet with the car.

I've seen those Fr500's on a car identical to mine on this site, some member has them. It doesn't look bad, but kinda to blahhh. Also the Black Saleens did cross my mind, but one of my friend's has them on his black v6 lol. That's not holding me back, I just don't fuggin know if I want chrome or the blackness[:@]

I still say chrome fr500s lol. It seems like you have a serious dilemma on your hands. You need to take a good side shot and 6 diff wheel shots and go visit the chop shop lol. It really helps a lot to actually see the wheels on your particular car.
