think I should go with 17"'s or 18"s? had 17"'s on my last car and wanted to go bigger. . But I'm afraid it'll look tacky. . .

I've got 17s and honestly, I think they look kinda small.



18s I think would be perfect.
Personally though, I wouldn't go bigger than 18s.

What have you got on your Tib right now?

I've got the stock ones on. .. . I thought I had made up my mind but I keeps seeing different rims I'd love to have. I'm not sure if I should go black or go chrome or both?!?!? I've always had dakr colored cars and had "sliver" rims. . this time I want the chrome look but I bought a white car!! lol I knowit still flows but I have like super dark tint windows and I sort of wanted the whole white and black thing going. I was going to buy something like konig unknowns but I can already feel the heat of the flames for just mentioning it! lol Thing is they really arent' over played by me cuz nobody has them. . I'd be the first really. . . .

Well, I'm personally not a fan of any Konig wheel, but that's just me :)

I think a black/gunmetal wheel with a chrome lip (kind of like mine) would look really nice on a silver Tib, although you'll get just as many people flame because 'everyone has that kind of rim'.

If you're going with a silver/black theme on your Tib, then a nice chrome/black rim would be perfect. In that case, the Troubles or Unknowns would be good choices.

What's the cost of those wheels with tires, and the tire's specs?

As for a nice wheel that 'spins', get small spokes or fewer spokes. Then when you're moving, all you really see is the rotor and caliper -- sexy :)

OK, you'll need 5-114.3 bolt pattern (5 holes).

The 18" tires they have are : 225/40/18

225/40/18
The 225 indicates this tire is 225 millimeters across from the widest point of its outer sidewall to the widest point of its inner sidewall when mounted and measured on a specified width wheel.

225/40/18
The 40 indicates that this tire size's sidewall height (from rim to tread) is 40% of its section width. The measurement is the tire's section height, and also referred to as the tire's series, profile or aspect ratio

225/40/18
The 18 indicates the tire and wheel diameter designed to be matched together (ie: 18" wheels)

call them and ask them and they will have to tell you what tire it comes with. you should also be able to upgrade to better tires, obviously you will pay the difference in price between their standard package tires and the ones you want to upgrade too though. 18s will look ok on the tib, thats what i have but it depends on what you want them for,

Now that i am getting into some HPDE events i wish i had gone with 17s. tires for 17s will also be cheaper when you need to replace them.

Personally I wouldnt touch those or any other chrome wheels. Those espically because they look too much like the stock 17" wheels for my liking.

perhaps they are a bit "blingy" as gamz put it. . . now that I think of it . .. it might be a bad idea to put such flashy rims on my car. . . .I already draw enough attention and have enough to worry about. . . I do like the others though and I know the ultimate say is up to me so maybe I'll take a few flames and get those cuz I do really like them. . .and in the end thats all that really matters!
