Yes or no? new rims

My father told me they look "whack" lol
but what do you guys think?
for 18 inches, I cant afford 19 too baller for me lol.

If I buy spacers and make them flush, add a little bit thicker tires, lower the car slightly, and eventually paint them satin black?

They are ASA ar1 18x9 rear and I have 18x8 front.

more pics









btw anyone know what size spacer to get?
18x8 et 40
18x9 et 45
I was told 15mm and 25mm, do you agree? or more?


I need opinions please, should I just sell them or keep them?

I think you should paint your style 189s satin black!

Looks alright to me, are these the ones that were on craigslist? If so I considered them as well

But I say keep 'em, space them out a bit and they should look fine with a drop.

Had AR1 on my Audi. They are very weak and bent very easily. I had 18x8 all around and every single one was bent, and finish isnt very good.

I say stay with the OEM ones you have they look better and are better made

your stock 189's look nicer.

dont just get rims, for the sake of getting rims. if you want 19s but "can afford it", save up your money until you can get something you really like.
