    Chrome, but everyone does Chrome...

    I say deep dish with silver lip in black! But that'd change the whole wheel..

    Do a nice Mach 1 paint job on your hood, that'll match it real nice.

    i want white 18x9 saleens, in the future that is. so i say go for what you want, saleens looks nicer than any other wheel on our cars IMO.

    are those 18's? and what brake setup are you running? im really scared that the offset wont fit right, its a 24mm offset and 5.85" backspacing.
