Maybe the pillars and moulding was just overdoing it, but i love color on a black wheel just to set it off, especially when it matches the red calipers.

Also dont forget for the SS/RS guys the SS badging is in RED!

+1 the red around the glass messed it all up. But I agree about the wheels though. But go with a 20 in front and 22 in rear or 22s all the way around. The majority of people have it in thier heads that just because the wheel is big, that its cool. This is especially true for the "DONK" crowd.

I'm going with something similar, but prepare to be criticised here. If it's not torque thrust II's or over 20 inches it's "ghetto".

It looks like it needs an alignment . I think black wheels with a thinner red-outline would look good on a red car. Im not a fan of the red outline around the windows. But hey, its your car, so whatever you like is whats important.

I actually like a red pinstripe around the rim of a black wheel on a black car. Not big on 23's though. They make even the 14.4" Brembos look puny!

And I don't think I've ever heard of a "lightweight" 23" wheel!

I think the reason most people consider wheels that big to be "ghetto" is because they're a little older. I've found with age comes an appreciation for functionality over what my peers consider "cool." If he wants to spend $5000 on a set of wheels, who are we to judge? If it makes you happy I say go for it. I'm sure you'll love it and so will your friends, just don't expect to get a lot of from the majority around here.

its his car. everyone keep the derogatory comments to yourself. if you dont like it, thats fine, you can say so without calling the OP names or outright bashing him for doing something his way rather than yours.

You really shouldn't bash someone for their choice in car, but then say the other person should be able to do what he wants to his car? Thats pretty hypocritical.
