I agree. These wheels wouldn't be my first choice, but the PO sold the originals separately from the car.

I'm just waiting until the life runs out of these tires and I'll most likely get another set of M pars.

I would have to disagree with you guys. I like those wheels on the car...

I may be in the minority but man I LOVE that stock bumper look. Your car look so sleek and lean plus it's SO SHINY. digging it.
