Not my cup of tea, but I suppose that's the beauty of having YOUR own car and making it YOUR own. Keep having fun with it!

They are a little heavier than the stocks. I was planning to do some performance on it but instead of wasting alot of money decided to just put these on and save the cash for future repairs. Yeah everyone has their own taste. I just respect others likings as i hope they do the same. The car looks wider and mean. I had them on for a couple hours and bunch ppl complimenting on the car. I try

i salute you for that way of thinking, most newbies here spend money on "trying" to make their cars faster, and neglect making them actually drive

They look good, no problem about that.
Wheels can make so big difference in looks of any car.
For example...

vs.

Car is similar piece of junk in both, but those wheels make it look better.

They look pretty good to me 19 is a little big for a smaller car. I like the wide part though! Wheels are my next purchase

A little too wide for the car & the tires. Watch out for those curbs & potholes!

With the financial state that California is in, the potholes are going to get worse. I fear that road maintenance is going to be the least of your worries. When celebrities with millions are moving out, guess who is going to have to make up the difference? At the very least, make sure you have a full sized spare.

yeh i have a spare in the trunk. We pay alot as is. I wouldnt be surprised about that. I love how they say they are going to decrease debt and the way to do it is by screwing us over.
