Just have to get some initial opinions from the Community...

It was with a camera phone, so not the best quality...

BTW, the only responses so far have been big smiles and waves from hood rats and 'looks right' type remarks, so what do you all think?

Definately flashy, and the size doesn't seem too outrageous--I just, personally, don't care for the design of the wheels, particularly on that car.

Not bad overall though, and I can see it attracting attention in "certain parts":thumbsup:

Put a continental kit on the back, and you'll be ready for a Mike Jones Video.:D
It looks nice. Congrats on the purchase of the rims. :thumbsup:

Both of you picked up exactly the look I wanted...big, but not outrageous... If I had an old school, id get some 24 inch shoes that people would love bein like - thats naaassssty. BUT, they are small enough that they still look classy...had to get flats to keep the look...

addison - I would get a 5th wheel, but it took the rim shop 1.5 months and much cursing to get my rims in, so I don't know how long it would be to get one more rim in!

Looks good:bouncy: . What size are the wheels/tires? Also what backspacing?. Any scrubbing or issues like that?. I'm interested in a set of 18"-20" but have no idea about what will/wont fit. I want to put Impala SS wheels on mine but was told that they would not work due to the backspacing, now looking for alternatives. Thanks.

This is yet another wheel install that I strangly kind of like. I'm with caddycruiser though. The size isn't bad, it's the actual "design" of the wheel I'm not real fond of. A few months ago, I saw a guy in Trenton, NJ (where I work) with what looked like maybe a '94 or '95 deville with real big wheels like yours and the low profile tires. The car was real clean and not gawded up at all. Real clean and low-key but with the wheels it really looked great! I'm not betting the ride is very good but it looks nice. And to be honest, unless the roads around you are better than around me, it's ridiculous to have such low profile tires. I recently helped my daughter pick out a wheel/tire package for her car and to be honest I had to go at it with the speed shop owner about it because he was suggesting 45 series tires. Around here IMO, 45's aren't a bright move. The roads suck and it's a fair bet that you're gonna damage the tires and wheels fairly quickly. I suggested to go with 50's at the max. She got the 50's and months later there's no dings in the wheels and the car still rides real nice. I'd say as good as the OEM 60 series tires did.

Rims are a good size but a bit of an odd design. I still give my seal of approval.

YES! When my guy told me to throw some flats on her, I asked what they were... He responded by describing the bigger rims on a Benz that are bascially one plate lookin type deal. Classy look is right! The only other choice was for the Catalyst wheel...

Thanks for all the compliments, guys! :cool2: I sure am enjoying the hell out these wheels...

They are either 8.5 or 9, but not sure how wide...I haven't had any rubbing issues yet, but then again, I haven't bust a uturn in her since last week... I was originally told by the shop that they would need some backspacing or something, but they did NOT tell me of any mods they had to make...sorry!

I'll be going outside later to check the tire size for you...
