I busted one of my rims and they are a discontinued model so i need to pick up a new set but all of my money is going towards a new clutch. I know a guy who is selling a set of 16" lightweight racing rims for a 100 bucks so i'd figure it would be a nice cheap temporary fix.

But i do think it would look weird on the tib, especially since we have such big wheel wells.

So if you have a picture of your tib with aftermarket (preferred) rims and it's lowered can you please post a picture?

Doesn't matter what color it is.

Thanks

it is going to look a little awkward, cavi style, if you put low profile tires on them. Since this is a temporary fix as you say i would just go with a stock sized 205/55 tire because it would probably be cheaper anyway. In that case it would look like you are just poor, but at least not ricer poor.lol

i would be willing to get some lightweight 16's for track usage,

probably wouldnt look half bad if your car was ATLEAST lowered

that's cause those rims are butt ugly :)
Oh I totally agree, but it is hard to drop 1k on a set of new rims before winter time. plus for 1k I would rather make the car faster..
