Need help deciding on new rims!!!

well the time has finally come for me to get myself new rims...i thought i had my mind made up of what i wanted but now that i actually have the money(thanks to income tax ) im second guessing what i want so i figured what better way to decide this very hard choice than to have all you help me out

ok im looking at 2 different rims and 2 different sizes

option #1-now these come in 18 and 20in


option #2-these also come in 18 and 20in


ok so there is the options, i dont know if i should get 18s or 20s...what would look better??? also once i get the rims i wanna get some lowering springs, with 20s im not sure i will be able to ...

now everybody be honest of what you think will look better with the rims and the sizes...my wallet is counting on you lol either way its going to be somewhere between 1000-1500 depending on the size...ty to everyone thats comments

I am with the milkman; I like the split spoke look and would not go bigger than 18" because of the potholes and performance. I am actually downsizing on my GTP to a 17" rim because of the wonderful roads of PA. I will be getting new rims in a couple weeks too, CANT WAIT!

I like the first option in 18's as well - I am personally debating on 20's myself (90% of my driving is highway) but like you said - you wont be able to lower it then. I'd say the 18's, nice rubber and lower. Either way its going to look nice!

This is my choice. IMO, unless you have a really clean fenderwell I would steer clear of rims that show that area off.

18inch

option 1- 18''. 20" seem to be too much for the size of the g6 in my opion. Ive read that some had no problems with ride quality having 20" but not lowered. 18" & lowered would look sweet.

Remember, this is only my opinion;
There's a fine line between having a cool looking car and having cool looking rims. Find the rims that complement the G6 not rims that overtake the look altogether.
