I don't think it would be a big change from what you have now...

I guess you guys are big fans of concave wheels. Tell my why you think it's a bad idea. I appreciate everyones input.

These will be staggered 22 inch wheels 265/30/22 295/25/22. I really like the stock wheels but want a 22 to fill the wheel well.

Man your car looks sweet!!! I'm a big fan of the deep lip wheels, but concave wheels have been growing on me lately. Have you ever seen a & with concave wheels?

The look will all depend on the specs. Me personally I like less spokes and deeper concave, so the offset and width on the wheel is what's going to either make it or break it

Would like to upgrade my wheels...but my city doesn't do much as far as potholes...any suggestions as far as 18 inch rims?
