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
+1


Also, please dont tell me you're buying from WheelsNext!!

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.
:cool:

I used to have the same exact wheels. They dont look as good in person. These are 18's and they look like 17's on the car.

ty to everyone that has commented thus far and i have decided on what rim i want im going to go with the avenues(option #1) in 18s so that way i can still lower it...now there is just 1 more question i have before i buy... the rims have 2 different looks and ill post them up and you tell me what you think will look better...

option #1


option #2


and here is a pic of my car currently(well kinda) so you can kinda see what it will look like (if i knew how to photoshop i would of just stuck both rims on the car and then posted but im not smart enough to do that


they both look very very good im just not sure what to do there both sexy as hell can you guys give me some insight on what you all think...ty very much to everyone that comments

I'm partial to chrome being used as an accent - I think it will show off more w the hint of chrome but the straight black keeps the look you have. tough

that is my EXACT thoughts on it to I HATE CHROME but i think the little chrome option 1 has on it will kinda give it more of a look but then again my car is ALL silver and black so i really dont wanna mess that up grrr this is tuff

This would be my thought - if your keeping the side mirrors silver go w the chrome accent (so its not just one thing that is all black on profile view) but if your going to change that to black it kinda sets the 'parts' aside from the 'body'. The more I look at it the more I am leaning to the chrome. Anyone else?

I am with the others Option 1. A little bit of chrome goes a long way. I am going with similar wheels for my Granite GTP Coupe. I CANT WAIT!
