I looked at a lot of pictures of cars with 16" and 17" wheels and looked at prices of the wheels and tires as well. I finally settled on the Vintage WheelWorks V45 16x8 blems for $650 a set. I decided I just wasn't that happy with the short sidewall of the 17" wheels so I went with the 16's. I'll go with 245/50's up front but I'm not sure if I'm going with 255 or 245's for the rear. It depends on the tire I select and if that model has the 255.

Cool Jeff! Wheels are a tough deal sometimes; I've always had a hard time making up my mind. The last two times were easy though as a great deal fell in my lap!

It's a tough decision on what size, style, cost, use you're going to put them through. Since the car might turn into my daily driver, the polished alloy wheels(Torq Thrust and Eagle Alloy 211) would be a pain to keep clean. I would really love to stick some 275/40 tires on the back, but the extra cost for the right wheels and tires that won't wear well were also a factor. I'm really getting stuck on the rear tires because I don't know if I want to pay the extra money for the style tire I want that has 255/50/16's. I'll make that decision later.
