I know they will look great! In opinion at least. And I dont think they should slow you down much because they are "Performance Package" rims. Did you get 17s or 18s

MMV, amazing pictures.

They are actually pretty heavy, but I don't think you'll notice that much. I went from 15" to 17" on my saab and the difference was negligible. The sticker should be self adhesive, just peel off that paper, and slap it down. Failing that, jakes idea is pretty good, hot glue would probably work.

Thanks for the advice about the sticker. I didn't know it had an adhesive surface.

Travis, I love the look of that photograph. Looks sort of vintage, circa 1970's. What camera do you shoot with?

...Oh, and your car is pretty cool too i guess.

I use a Nikon D60 and the "desaturated" look seems to be my current style. Thanks!

Those rimms are exactly what I was going to get a couple of weeks ago!! I decided to wait a month or two 'cause I don't want to spend $1300 on rims and tires right now. Those are awesome rims, good pick Albo.
