Help/Advice with Rims

One year ago today, I picked up my car. Happy b-day to me! Ive been using the 162s for my winter set-up and now need to think about a set of summer rims. Im going to keep the 18 inch performance RFTs that came with the car, so I need to find a nice set of 18 inch rims. I really like BBS and was thinking about the CHs. Do people have any other thoughts? Will 18 inch BBS CHs look too small on my car? Im not really interested in doing a drop and want to keep the price in and around $2500. TIA.

Good taste on CH I am a big fans of CH too. Sure you can get 18" CH under $2500

CH's are a good obvious choice. But to be honest, 18" anything (especially with a lip) will look a bit small on our cars. You sure you don't wanna ditch the stock runflats and go with 19's?

CH's are nice... but there are other nicer rims out there. Its been done... but a classic. Choice on 18's is good, you won't have to sacrifice ride quality compared with 18's. From people have said, the 18's give a better ride but 19's look better on the car.
