or

Im leaning towards these Speedy Mercury's with the gunmetal/machined finished

what to yous think i should go for?

and i was thinking about getting 18's at the back and 17's at the front, think i should do it? or stay same size all round, i'd like 18's at back and 17's at front just to be different, and IMO it would look cool.

after looking at your car and the rims,

i suggest that u dont go with the sabers , but go for the speedy mercury crome or the speedy spider crome.

in the 18s x 8.5 and get the face on a negative offset( deep dish at the back )

and also loose the wing givving your car a sleek look get the sprint lights.

that will look hot.

then give it a nice polish and post some pics. : )

Dont like either of those choices.
I like the XHP Wheels Jet. Only thing is I wish Jet was in shadow chrome not chrome.

keep the bigger wheels on the back look for the Hot Rod guys :wink:

I don't mind the Sabers actually. I'll think they would look good in chrome.

that BA does not look to bad with those mercurys on it but he needs a darker colour car for rims to suit IMO, eg my colour or black or dark gray or something, but trying to pic my car ontop of those rims i think it would look alright
