I'm not gonna lie, I think those look terrible. They don't go with the lines of the car at all.

I am torn. I love the rims. But they look like they should be on a BMW type car not ours. But to each their own. I live by dare to be different

You can try this site http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp?action=submit or similar ones to figure out what tire sizes are suitable for accurate speed reading.
From trying a few sizes, the best would be 245/40/18  =  0.28% diameter difference, where 3% is considered significant and risk of brake failure! :o

So I went and color-matched a gold hue to the original wheel in a photo editor.......




I think this looks worse.

But then I thought about the aluminum lip on the standard wheel...




Don't nag me about that back wheel. Get a better camera, dude. :laugh:
