I Did Not Listen To You Guys!!!!!

Well, a few weeks ago I bought these set of rims. 95% of you guys said they did not look good. And basically told me to get rid of them. Anyways I did not listen to you guys lol. I painted them Satin Black. Here are pics of them now (iphone pics) Tell me what you guys think.

I really dont think they look bad at all. I need spacers in the back for sure. Maybe a small drop. What do you guys think?

yea, i upgraded the tire size, Nj pot hole roads hurt my back. Getting one size higer, improved the comfort by a lot. And I kinda like the beefy tire look, fills my wheel well.

I could understand the need for beefier tires, but why didn't you get beefier tires on your stock 189s? I'm not a fan of the wheels, but if you like it and it meets your needs then awesome. But its not that great on the eyes.

The beefy tires remind me of track setups, and I think they look great, to be honest.

Reminds me of many Z06s that run fat slicks at the strip. More of a get-down-to-business hardcore look, which I like. A roll cage would set off that track look, even though its just a thought.

Space out the rears and you're golden.

It certainly looks better than when the wheels were silver.

What size tires? I agree the fat tire look is great.

I think that is sick as fak. You just have to calculate the right amount of spacer to really set it off (mostly just the rear). I like though.

Beefy tyres are very cool. Most people just don't get it, which shouldn't bother you. Rims are nice, reminds of RGR BBS.

I actually really like them, I don't know the rite size right off the back, but I'll tell you guys. Right now im thinking either 20 or 25 mm spacers in the back. Gatta measure it properly. I've gotten many compliments once I painted them. None before.
