I did some searching but didnt come up with anything. Lots of the other forums have an "official" picture thread for aftermarket wheels. I couldnt find one for here. Im looking for a thread to help make a wheel selection a little easier.

If you could post a picture of your car with aftermarket wheels. Please post your offset, size (i.e 19x9.5), and tire size. Thanks

Here are mine, Asanti AF-146, 20'', cant recall the width off the top of my head.

I do not have a drop kit, I was thinking about getting one, but I am not a fan of the "slammed" look, and would only really want .5'' - 1'' drop at the very most. I have been contemplating getting a set of 19's to replace these, and then I would definitely drop her. I am running 245/35/20 up front and then 275/30/20 in the rear.

Come on people.... No one has pictures of their V with a set of aftermarket rims?
I'll post up when Wheeldude comes through for me in July. At the rate threads move in the Appearance section, this thread should be easy to find.

The point is not to have to search and read 4029434802983409234 threads. Why not just have one thread with everyones aftermarket setup? Unless you like searching for hours on end...

Catch2otwo asked me to make this a sticky, and I think it's a good idea but we aren't quite there yet.

If we can get a good enough variety of installed wheel pics with offsets, I'll clean this up and make it permanent.

Yet another Team Dynamics set-up with 275/35/18 R6s all around. I'm not sure why so many people only go with 245s in the front.


This one kind of gives an idea of how they sit in the wheel well:

i can tuck a 285 in the rear, but 245s on the front were pushing the rubbing factor as it is on a daily driven car if tuckage was to be obtained aesthetically.

and i don't track the car.

lastly, as far as the black wheel discussion, i for one have never had it grow on me. it appalls me at times how some can get a beautiful $1500 wheel and paint it black, but as mentioned, it's always a personal choice. i think maybe 2 cars i've seen look decent sporting a "semi" black wheel, WFO's black cts-v, and a zo6.

black wheels? man they just look dirty imo, but carry on. :)

Your setup is a little different than most considering the drop you are at.

As for black. The reason I went with it is that they're going to be coated in brake dust within the first five minutes or so anyway. For street wheels, I think black chrome looks really good.
