New Wheels!~

LOVE these things! Been looking on CL forever trying to find wheels with proper offset/size and look. Finally found these Visions 19" and they work awesome and look even better. Check it out.







The old stock wheels

Nice wheels. I usually don't like the look of 19s but these seem to have a nice balance of metal to rubber.

The tires are pretty much shot. They are 245-35, I think 45's would look just a tad better. Very happy with the look of the wheels on the car though. Tough to find em on craigslist in the right bolt pattern size and offset....

No, keep the 245/35 profile, a 45 side wall will throw your speedo out.

Lucked out, found some Michelin Pilots for $300! 90% Tread left. fronts are 235/35 and rears are 265/35, so pretty sure Ill need to roll my fenders before I put these on.

You never listed width and offset. . . They look good but I might in the minority. The stock 18"s are one of the better looking wheels on our cars. I personally would never run 19"s on my streets. I'm sure they handle nicely on smooth roads but I know on my streets that even 18"s don't give as good of a ride or give pot hole protection. On the cheap side the cost difference between some decent performance tires in 17"s vs 19"s is about $300 a set too.
