Default New Wheels

I had a set of Motegi DP6's on my old PT. They were in a "Hyper-Black" finish. I had to have them replaced before because the protective coating had peeled on them. Well, they are peeling again. I have had these wheels for almost two years. I went back today to the store I bought them at and we agreed to swapping them out again. This time I will be getting chrome ones. I think this will be so much better for the white color I have now. This along with the 1 1/2 drop in the front and 2 1/2 inch drop in the rear should be sweet.

Here is a picture of my old wheels.


Here are the new ones I will be getting.


Here is a photoshop of the wheels on my car.


Here is a photoshop of my car lowered.

Looking good. Nice wheels and I like the dropped look. That's great service for 2 yrs later.

Those pictures look sweet, BUT it will never look like those pictures unless you put airbags in your car. I have 18" and my car is lowered with springs the same height you just mentioned yet there is still a wheel gap. Still looks better than stock! Like your rims too. The 17" you are using will show even more of a wheel gap without airbags.

I know it won't look that extreme. One of the members here did that photoshop. I will never drop it that low. Not in this city. The 1 1/2 front, 2 1/2 rear drop will be enough. I had the springs but never got around to putting them on my old PT.
