What do you think of these wheels on my car?

How do you think these 20" wheels would look on my car?



If you don't think they'd look good, give me some ideas/pictures.
I'll change the picture tomorrow or this weekend...I'll have the Xenon GFX on.







Thanks alot,

William

I love the paint, I hate the wheels you have pictured there. They look too ghetto SUV for my tastes.

A nice set of charcoal wheels with a dish would look nice. 18's or so.

I would have to agree. Don't think the rims are gunna come out the way you think they will. I also love the paint and black outs. Also, can't say I'm a fan of your spoiler. BUT........you should only take opinons for what they are.........opinions. You do whatever you think looks good.

then again, I still like cobra's. (old age what can I say!)

I'm with Cuda. Those would look pretty nice along with some big 'ol brakes behind 'em.

and ya know, from that angle, the spolier doesnt look too bad. Cant say I like it from the rear though.

The only thing is he wanted 20's. So heres my stab at it.
They're not too bad. Wing is not my taste, but if you like it, then that is all that matters.

I also like the wheels you have now, don't particularly care for 20's on a bird, 18's look the best IMHO, oh yeah, ditch the wing.

I agree, 20's are too big for cars, those first wheels Cuda pictured are cool looking. I like how what you have now looks too. And I'm wiht the other guys on the wing. But, I know as well as anyone that your opinion of your car is the only one that really counts, I have one funky stripe. Lots of people like, it, but lots of people really, really hate it too.

I agree the wing sucks! I don't like the wheels or the single chrome tip either. But if that is your choice do it. Nice color though.
