It really comes down to looks vs. performance. Always the tradeoff... only you can decide. Partial to 18's here for perf, but the 20s look great.

I feel your pain man. $400 ain't bad tho, my little back-up incident ended up costing close to $1200, and I didn't even hit another car
Yeouch.. Yeah all in all I got lucky.. when the dealer quoted me $400 I said, "hows monday?"

That's actually from the incident... I just grazed his bumper then crunch...

Seriously, that sucks, but it'll be fixed good as new before you know it.
Yeah the dealer seemed to think it was not very bad at all.. He said he could make it perfect for about 800 and he could make it so I'll probably be the only one to notice for $400...

Yeah, I've always been a looks first guy... but this car is certainly the highest HP car I've ever owned so I want the best of both worlds...

20's seems like the best compromise.

20's for the street, and 18's for the rear on strip days... Sorry to hear about the fender bender, but it sounds like you have a fast fender mender... so it's all good...

Plus you can get the dimples in DayGlo Orange or Neon Yellow/Green.
Match those 30" rims you are getting...

On this pic, I'm thinking about some blue highlighting on the inner lip of the wheels.... Not a very good photoshop... but you can at least see what I'm thinking... what do you guys think?

A good part of I-10 in west Tx is 80-ish speed limit now, that should help. Get C.B.'s and Randy can teach you to talk "Trucker"
