I think that champagne rims look good on white cars.

I have the ELGTs and I couldn't be happier.

I have a dynamic white ED, and the best wheels to suit the white colour are the el gt's in shadow chrome, as seen in this pic. The tyre factory has them: $1450 with michelin rubber, a good deal if you ask me.

18's weren't available when i got mine, so they're just the 17's :wink: they fill the guards out very well though, and i've had a lot of people ask if they are 18's! :)

Thats cause your car is so low that it makes them look bigger.
