Thanks for the info I'll pick some up. Your car looks great btw. Better than most I see here.

Hey we got a guy that gets what I'm trying to do. I don't want "gangsta" anywhere near my cars and trucks I do like the stock look and hate the giant wheel look. But hey each to his own right?

It Could be a lot worse I could be riding on these wheels lmao

I don't get it . You saying you could be ridding on the wheels in the last pic ? Those are the 128's , one of the best looking OEM wheels available on the market today that complements the 7.

hes trying to be funny, because I said his wheels were gross, which they are. Now I understand they were only 400, which is what they look like they cost. That was my 745, I sold that car almost 4 yrs ago. You should at least post a pic of my 750.

Yea some people try to b funny?? Posting a pic of my ex stock 745 stock w stock 128 wheels isnt gangsta in my opinion. Posting a pic of your 2003 745 w 400 $ rims is ghetto in my book

Yes it was a pop shot for a pop shot. I personally don't like the 128's. I guess I'm crazy. Some don't like mine but as someone stated before it don't really matter what other people think as long as I like them. I posted those wheels knowing it would mostly get the reaction it did lol. Like I said they will ride till the next set comes along.

Well I know this wont go over with the cool kids here but I changed the looks up of the current wheels. Did some painting and I think they came out great. Wheel spacers are on the way. Hate love whatever lol. More hate I'm sure.

Other black accents (on the car) would help bring those black rims in even more. I will leave it to you as to where!

Ya gotta love the haters...

The 08 wheels look great, actually one of my favorite stock 19" wheels they make.
