Sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum but I was wondering if someone could photoshop my wheels gunmetal black and possibly lower my car about an inch. I am considering both of these things but just want to get an idea of what it will look like.

no problem.

I think the wheels look real cheap, they are too small to be that dark and the wheel design doesn't fit the dark look. Everyone even non car enthusiasts knows small dark wheels are weird. The drop will always look great no matter what.

I agree. The wheels just looked a bit off to me. I was only contemplating because I just bought new tires and if I got new wheels I would also need new tires then for the different size. What I think I might do is use these for winter and then buy new wheels and tires for rest of year. Not sure though. I do like the drop ofcourse though.
Also would you mind posting with the drop but no color.

this. VMR Vb3 + koni yellow + h&r racing springs. done
I do like those wheels and they are a reasonable price. Since they are 18 instead of 17 I would need to get a thinner tire so the speedometer does not get off right.

Or you could rock the 19's ;) Speedo can be adjusted with the Scanner 1.4 I believe.

+1 on using those for winters, they look like they are in rough shape. I wouldn't worry too much about the speedo, those are pretty chunky tires, any approriately sized tire on an 18 rim will likely give you close to the same rolling radius as those.

I think the wheels look dirtier then normal in the picture because of sand and dirt but they are still pretty worn. Thanks for the input
