Well I always loved the first GT-P wheels, so I'm for putting them on your car, should look good.

I prefer BA GT's, although BF GT's are growing on me.. Any of them will look better then what you've got now..

Hmm i'm very tempted to buy some new ones, the harsh ride from the 19's is getting annoying. But my financial advisor seems to think otherwise :( I think i may have to just wait a lil longer and get some simmons wheels in the future

Black with deep dish 4 sure. They'll suit anything. Ford rims are boring.

punktured, i had 19" nankangs on my old car, they were alright for the money. Keep the black rims, they look nice up against your colour.
