I have a stock 2001 GXE but will soon be gettin' some rims. Eventually I might drop it an inch or two but first will be the rims. I need to know what 18" will look like on the car and what are the downs of puttin that big as rim on there. I know 17" will work lovely but I'd rather have the 18"s. Overall, I'm going for a clean look and am not tryin' to make it look fast and furious(got a bike to scratch my speed itch and the alti to carry the crumbsnatchers and beat). I'm really into bikes but want my cage to look nice too. Just a little bit here and there makes a car look way better than when you slam it to the ground and scrape your ground effects and bumper everytime you enter a parking lot. So please send me some pics or post em. 17", 18" and kits please. The more the better. You can hit me at [email protected]. Thanks in advance!! Oh yeah almost forgot the rims don't gotta be chrome, just tight. And yes I did try and search but too short it says so if you don't wanna answer my question,........ then don't.

This is how I looked at it and choose my 17's over 18's.

18's: Heavier, more money, not as smooth a ride, and I would havta worry more about them cracking.

To me 18's are just all look's. I mean I would get 18's if I had the money at the time but right now im just as happy with my 17's.

18's,18's, 18's. You will be very disappointed if you go with 17's. If you do go with chrome 18's they will be quite heavy and slow your car down, crappy gas mileage to, but they will look great. I would'nt trade in my Lexani's for any other wheel. What color car you got? And I got 225/40's on my wheels and they ride smooth as hell.

I have 17"s, and yes 18"s will allways look better, so if you are willing to spend the money go for it, if not 17"s are still nice
