    I would suggest you think seriously about what your want from your rims....Chrome is very heavy, this wearsout your brakes, increases your stopping distance, worstens gas mileage and can hurt your transmission. 20 inch rims will also dramatically worsten your ride quality and increase tire wear.....having said all that, dont buy anything from vogue tyre, they are a total rip off. Also a price range would be helpful, because if you have cash to burn i can help you get a good deal on HRE Rims, they would be almost 1000 a piece. Finnaly think about getting your rims powdercoated a color instead of chromed its better for the environment, not as heavy and imho not nearly as played out

    Chrome...played out...never. And your right about Vouge Tyre being a rip off. I was pricing some rims for my DeVille. Vouge had the 18'' Alias & Sonic Wheels with Vouge Tires ( Yellow Stripe Only - looks good though ) for $3,151.60. Capital Cadillac in Greenbelt, MD. It seemed like the Vouge rep made this number up off the top of his head . You know how people try to give odd-looking number combinations like 3151.60 instead of 3000.00 to make it look more offical and not off the cuff... For 3+ I'll go with 20'' first.

    I agree, chrome will aways look good on a luxury car. It's chrome wheels on a sports car that may be tacky.

    Anyways, I'd suggest MC2 wheels. There're elegant, high quality, and not outrageously overpriced. I got my wheels/tires from the dealer for $2k.

    VDO - Thx for the input, I was looking for something with a lip in six spoke. Im still trying to get the heavy rims will wear out the brakes faster? A car designed to stop with 7 people in it with a strong V-8 better have brakes that will last the standard "romp & stomp" around town driving. As for ride quality - given
