What do you guys think of these rims going on my car?

And has anyone ever seen gold rims on a red stratus, because I can get some pretty cheap?

Opinions

Well wheels need to not stand out or look mismatched to your car. So ask yourself simple things...
What's all the various colors going to match? Is a cheap wheel worth it? Get what I like now or find something I'll love forever?

I say they look ok. I'm super picky about wheels, I like them somewhat because there's an odd number of spokes. They don't jump out at me as a MUST HAVE wheel, but look fine.

EDIT - maybe it's me or the photo... but the spokes on the left side look bent (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) nvm... it's the "wheel design"

What's your theme? If its chrome and red Those could be cool. Black and red, I prefer illusions like mine

I think the wheels look ok. I could go without the red in them though. What is your budget for wheels? That will make a difference for what kind I will suggest (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I think a machined wheel would look really good on a red car. I don't like the idea of gold though sorry. You could go with hypersilver too. That's a neat color.

I wish I had a wrx sti (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
I'm trying to keep my budget to about 650$ I've seen some pretty nice gun metal rims around the 580 range.
Hyper silver on some websites seems almost like chrome while on others it just looks polished, which is it?

This is hyper silver

$650 for just wheels or $650 for wheels and tires?

I think these would look good.

It's more than your $650 though :/ You should post up some pictures of ones you are looking at so we can get a general idea of the style.

What's wrong with the current wheels you have now?

So I was rotating my tires today and when I took the rear wheel off the belt was starting to wear (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) We decided to get some new tires and to get an alignment to take out most of the camber and NTB tells me that I don't have a camber kit so they cannot fix it. I get home to do some research and realize the guy was completely oblivious to knowing how to do his job. After figuring out I do have one, how do the things work? I am sitting around -2.1 and -2.3 in the rear. It looks like when it was installed one washer was used on the top and bottom of each.

The thing is we have no idea how to go about getting it as close to -1.0 as possible. Do we just turn the oval shaped washer that is in the middle, or do we have to add more washers to the kit itself? We're lost as to how to fix and get it back in spec... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

It is the Ingalls rear camber kit
Searching has not seemed to help me with the topic even after re-wording many times

Do we just turn this thing?
