I like the second one down. I am very pleased with the Konig Illusions I put on my GTP coupe. There are pics in the gallery and in my garage.

My Michelin Primacys are made in the USA. Some Bridgestones are also made here. Those are the two Brands I recommend. I have Bridgestone Blizzaks on now for the winter on Steelies, and I was running the Potenza RE050s, but when I changed sizes of rims. I found a really good deal on the Michelins and saw the excellent reviews.

There are SOOOO many rim choices.

Types of:
-Finish
-Color
-Size
-Depth
-Number of spokes


I prefer 10 spoke dark rims with an aluminum finish (as apparently by my current rims) Go with Michelin Pilot series (MXM4 or Pilot Sport A/S Plus). Go with Discount Tire.

oh i know the choices are endless.. i definitely want to stay away from chrome and im going with 18" simply because im lowering the car in the spring,, and what does depth really mean with rims? and thanks for the tire choices!

Depth is how deep the spokes of the rim are embedded into the shell.

These are deep dish rims:
