I think the stock wheels fit the car better IMO.

Good luck with it and congrats anyway!

I've always thought that, in addition to being a noun, ghetto describes a place that is typically impovershed, neglected, and otherwise disadvantaged. So, what kind of wheels would that be?

I think the wheels look HOT! They are far from ugly or ghetto and are nice 3 piece wheels that are lighter then stock wheels. So please explain how is that ruining his car???

Wheels you see on cars driven around those impoverished areas. The wheels are overly large, flamboyant, and some even spin.

Not trying to speak for Leslie, but I'm guessing based on what little I know of her, this very intelligent woman was being facetious, actually, I'd bet on it.........

You're batting .500. Good bet, different gender.

You know Les....I think everyone thinks you are a lady because of your avatar (cool avatar at that). However, I always figured Leslie was a guy because of the "Sejanus" in his avatar. Assuming that Leslie is referring to Roman history, it would seem obvious that Leslie is a guy. Anyway...be it known that Les is a guy, a lawyer and overall car enthusiast.....just like me and a few others that post here regularly.

As you might imagine, I have a lot of funny stories to tell because of my first name. I came to realize that it could prompt so much confusion when I received my acceptance letter from college addressed to "Ms." Of course, always being one to look forward and on the bright-side, I immediately wondered whether I would be assigned to a female roommate!

Thanks everyone for the positive comments about my wheels and for the negative comments please do a little more research on what your comment on, because they are far from cheap and I don't think you would have had anything bad to say about my wheels until I posted the size of my wheels...

Wheels are a matter of personal taste, if you like them then that's all that counts, but don't expect everyone to like them just because they are 22 inch and cost a zillion bucks. IMHO they are probably the worst wheels I've ever seen, but so what.

I agree 100%, but don't call them ghetto or not like them because of the size only, take a look at the pictures and if it's over sized or don't fit the car for your taste then that would be perfectly ok with me just give a chance
