found these American racing rims for 150. there 205/15 and there off a ford taurus so that means they will fit right?

i figure it is a great deal, because the tires are good so i can sell the stockers and get at least half my money back. here's what they look like photoshoped onto my car

if i bought them i think i would lower my car and then leave it alone for a while, scene i already got good paint and tint. what do you guys think?

205/??/15 ...What size are the tires, they look short to me. Your car will look like a rollerskate if those are 60s.

i'm going to cal the guy tomarow and probably drive down town to look at them and check if they fit. i have a feeling the tires will be small, but i can just take the tires of the stock rims and use them right?

IMO the rims look pretty early 90's. and with them being smaller, I wouldn't get them. They aren't awful looking, and for the price they aren't bad, but I wouldn't spend the time and money myself.

You are not a police interceptor. Do not paint your rims black with silver centercaps.

:uppoint:

not a fan of the black and silver go one solid color for your car i would have gone all dark or a very light silver.

the 16" sport rims. (i think thats what there called) They are pretty nice as it is. But they could use paint, there a little chipped up. they would look nice polished but that's to much work, dont think it would be worth it.

all dark would look funny with the light silver stripe. And i think there already a light silver. if i'm keeping these, maybe i should just sand down all the chips and re-paint them silver?

edit: i mistook the brake dust for curb rash. The only scratched up part is around the lugs from torch guns. They just need to be cleaned up.
