Opinions please

So I'm looking for wheels for the spring. I don't want the same thing i see everywhere else. I will be looking and bouncing some ideas off you all to see what you think.

I have a Black 08 GT Coupe and i intend to go with 18" with a 235/45/18 tire.

Here are the first two contenders. Honest opinions please. The one on the left is black, it just appears a little grey in the pic.

I would go with the one on the right and get 245/40/18 tires instead. cuzzz the Diameter Difference will be less. Also it will look better and you will feel the difference on handling.

my honest opinion, good luck

I would totally get that third set in the 2nd posting if they matched my car color. I wonder if its possible to custom paint over the red.

EDIT: The bolt pattern doesn't fit.

Thanks everyone. Yeah, the 3rd one caught my eye, but i'm not sure. The site i got it from does say that they have that rim for the G6, just maybe not a pic of the actual G6 rim.

Either of the wheels from the first set would look amazing on a black coupe. I would probably go with the wheel on the right from your original post.

my favorite would be the first one is the second set of rims you posted.

in my opinion, 5 spokes looks the best on our cars, and that red stripe will accent your car nicely!
