The wheels flow well with the window trim. I do really really like the look of black on red though, your car would look good either way. If you did powder coat I'd darken the trim to match. Nice car and it's plenty low IMO.

Yeah I know that people might not be into them but I really really wouldn't want my car to be ghetto looking no matter what.

I was really happy with them when I picked them up...I knew she was hating when she wss like "maybe it's just because the car is red" and I was like, "bXXch, you are the one who always wanted the red!"

THANKS! I know the stance might not be ideal for racing or whatever, but for driving on the streeets and occasional "spirited driving" on the back roads it's fine. I have taken some turns pretty hard with people in the car and a full tank of gas and have no issues with rubbing.

Haha no it’s not a joke…the only reason I even consider her opinion is she DID have good taste in cars and is an enthusiast. I also know she can be brutally honest. I think in this case she is lying though in order to get a rise out of me.
Lol I know people on here can be opinionated too this is this only place I can really get honest feedback! And thank you!

HAHAHAHA thank you! It’s funny because she used to make fun of 328’s/128’s and automatic cars worse than anyone I know. Definitely a cute car for a teenage girl…

LOL! I’m actually going back and forth in my head on whether or not I should black out the trim. I’ve always been kind of against the silver trim but it does really compliment the wheels. And thanks about the color thing too. I do not regret getting this color at all and would probably get it again if I had to do it over again.

Well I have her dogs right now…so she calls EVERY morning to “check on the dogs”. It’s really annoying and I can’t even block her number because she calls me from a blocked number. I even called at&t and they said there was nothing they could do. As soon as she takes the dogs I’m changing my number.

Thanks! If I go with any other color on the wheels the trim will be blacked out at the same time! I just think that black might give it a little bit more of that sporty/race style…it’s just always hard to see the details on black wheels in pictures…might be different in person though.

Thanks! I’m think aero lip, even though they are “played out” as well. I think there’s a reason a lot of people have them though, they look great! You’re stance looks so good…not really second guessing the low thing anymore now!

I’m 25
1. Thank you
2. I’ve tried she calls daily from a blocked number and will call and call until I pick up
3. I don’t but if my wheels truly look ghetto I would care about that
4. I am she’s a really shitty person
5. Thanks lol

I’m either going to black out the trim or go back to my stock grills so they match. The fact that they don’t match has been bothering me.

I don’t…I just care if my car really does look ghetto…that’s the last thing I want, I’d rather have a stock car than a car that is ghetto or ricey. And thanks!!! Clean is definitely the look I’m going for.

It is a little on the low side but it will be raised for winter. I’m sure my ride height preference will changing with time and trends but that’s why I’m glad I have coilovers! I have yet to meet another girl who doesn’t love the car

Thanks! The last one left me alone, but this one is relentlessÖshe actually lives directly across the street now (with her new bfís family, he still lives at home) and watches my every moveÖItís like unreal...and she like knows what girls Iím hanging out with and stuff, even if I donít bring them to the house. I just got 3 calls in a row from her while I was in my meeting.

Thank you I didnít want to do anything ridiculously low. I think this is a nice compromise. She is quite bitterÖI did everything for that girl. Her life definitely changed a lotÖ

Thank you very much! I think they look really good with the red too. A lot of people do go with red on black and that is one of the reasons I stayed away from the combo.

You shouldn't even care what she thinks about your car.

The wheels and height of the car is super clean.

About changing the color. Don't. Theres enough people on the board with black or GM wheels. Don't do it.
