What do you think?

Well guys i was able to get my hands on a nice set of rims for my 96. They are bigger then i wanted to go with in the first place but they look real good and will look twice as good once i get the car lowered or put air suspension on it which would be yet even better. I wanted to go with 18s but the 20s showed up for the right price with rubber. What do you think?

Maybed but like you said my car lol. I was just wondering what the board thought about them. i think if the car is lowered alittle it will look alot better since it sits about an inch or so higher then with the stock 15's and huge sidewalls.

that looks surprisingly good, I've seen a lot of cars with big rims and sometimes it just looks stupid cause the car sits too high or something. But that actually looks pretty good, and your right, when lowered will look even more impressive.

I'm jealous now.

That is ride height, on the ground, with an engine Will it settle any? Wow that is a lot of fender gap! Will look good lowered for sure. If you don't have to jack up a car to fit the rims and tires, then it should look fine for sure.

Thats the car with motor and all. I dont think it will settle anymore unless lowered. Now for the paint im going to have a family friend do it. He has done a few of are bikes, metallic red and chrome illusion, and they come out great. Now the lowering springs have me wondering how far down i should go. an inch or two? Phatbird ant ideas since you familiar with the car and rim?
