Default Looking for suggestions for Rims and Tires

Hi Folks,

Well I'm now looking for advise on tires/rims for my PT (attached). I'm thinking black with silver trim and maybe a bit of red....all suggestions greatly appreciated as well as what you think is a reasonable price for pay,

Looks badass.. I would definitely go with black centers, and you could probably get away with a chrome lip, but I'd leave the red out of it. I think it would detract from that ridiculously awesome paint job you've got. I'd keep it really simple in the wheel/tire department. Maybe a set of 5 or 7-spoke black rims with a chrome lip..


EDIT: Obviously just my opinion, but I think that's what would look best on the car.

Konig Hotswaps can definitely pull it off!

Then if I were you, I'd go back to your man Corey Gauthier to get the spokes painted because he could probably get them to "flow" with the flames.

Hi,

Thank-you for the suggestions. I asked about painting the rims to flow and we decided it would be over-kill as may be adding the bit of red! I've looked around and found some Street Gear Black Widows that come in both 16 and 17 inch. I'm concerned about going larger as I've had her lowered by two inches.; ....

Looks good, but like I said, I still think the red accent will be a bit too over the top. I'd stick with either just black, or black with a chrome lip.
