I guess i'll be the first to say it but they look like they belong on a S14 240SX... maybe if they were 20's

I definatly like the concave rears! You already roll the fenders?

Thanks for the compliments!! No fender rolling yet. When I put the wider tires on, I will probably have to roll a little. Nothing drastic. I was debating on getting 18x9.5 concaved for the fronts too. Any thoughts? I also was thinking about getting bigger rims but I don't want to sacrifice ride comfort (lower profile tires) due to having a new born, the roads in Hawaii are bad. I would love to lower the car a little too on my coilovers but my drive way doesn't warrant it, ride comfort is important, and besides...with all the baby gear, the car gets a little heavy and naturally lowers it LOL. I like these rims because its out of the norm..mesh rims, and Camaro 20s. Don't get me wrong, I love those rims on the g8s but I see too many of them around. I recently saw another silver g8 locally with camaros 20s and another with mesh rims. Don't want to be like everyone else. Lol.

Thats what i was thinking. I may just order a pair of 9.5s for the front soon. as for the drop springs, I already have coilovers on the car but dont want to lower the care because my driveway sucks. I already scrape my exhaust with only me in the car. My drive way pisses me off cause I have a slammed 98 Z28 with true duals and it literally gets STUCK on my driveway. My camaro is now a resident at my good friends auto shop since he has extra room. lol.

Ya was thinking about getting the matte black...I'm kinda sick of black rims on silver cars. Nice but over played. Had my stock rims painted black. I like Hyper black because is a darker glossy silver. Between black and silver but not grey.

I feel the same about black wheels on black cars. SO PLAYED OUT.

SBC color from Enkei. Black chrome. (YUM)

SBC is sexy but I would worry about pitting like how chrome eventually does no matter how good you take care of them a specially on daily drivers.
