Ride: el

awesome man. topic is also relevant to me as im getting 19" pre AU rims as well for my 98' EL

I can properly chop them onto your ride if your interested...just send me a better picture of your car.

------------------------------

As for rim choice, it really depends what type of a theme you want...you've got a white car with red lines...I would suggest getting Rim 1 and then paint the tyre red like this...

The other theme is street tough, dark rims make the ride look tougher so you might want to consider those dark agents.(rim3)

its your money, depends what theme you want.

-----------------------------

Im getting those dark agents for my dark blue el gli in 19" should look good.
