20s on the G6. what else should i do?

So i just got these rims and tires for $400 and i think they look great. best wheel i've seen on a G6 yet IMO. Any ideas on future improvements? I'm thinking about tinting the windows. i don't want to go overboard. I'm new to the forum so let me know what you think of the car and wheels.

I don't want to lower it. it sits at stock height and it looks fine to me. Debadging has already been done. Painting calipers is probably next. I don't want to dump a lot of money in it so exhaust is out but i may try a cold air intake. Thanks for the suggestions

I agree, you should consider lowering it a tad, not slamming it. The huge gap really takes away from the flow and appearance of the car. But its only my opinion. Other than that, go with crabs, tint the tails.

The "Upgrades"
Alienationz Eyelids: LEDs in the map, dome, trunk, and license plate: Racingline STB bar: 5% window tint all around and a windshield brow


The To-Do List

Nice set of rims for 400 dollars! Wish I got such a good deal. I think you should go with a double din tv to replace stock radio. There are some good deals out there. I don't know if I recommend after market headlights cause the ones i have look good but too many issues with condensation and beam level off. They have some updated ones that I hear are way better but I don't have more money to spend on the eagle eyes. HID lights look great though, so I recommend some of those.

Mods: 20x8.5 chrome/black rims, 245-35-20 Kumho ecsta 4x ku22, pioneer avh 4200 DD headunit, 1500 watt rms rockford fosgate (T1500-bdcp) amp, 2 rockford fosgate 12 inch (T1s), 800 watt rms rockford fosgate (T800-4ad), pioneer 5 way 6x9s ,pioneer 4 way 6.5s, 30% tint, black spyder headlights with 6000K HID (fog/low), K&N CAI, black altezza tail lights, and magnaflow exhaust.

Looks good but I gotta agree with everyone and say lower her. I say go with red for the calipers.
