    Check out my Zenetti 18's

    I bought this car with these wheels on it. They are chrome Zenetti 5's in 18X8.5 in front and 18X9.5 out back.

    I originally didn't like them, but they are really growing on me. They have a pretty fat lip in the back. Should I keep them?

    They're really not that heavy. Not as heavy as I thought they would be.

    I painted my calipers this weekend and it helped the look but I think I'm going to go with some SSR GT3's. I bet I can get $800 for these wheels considering they are brand new. Anybody?

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    damn, 18's and the car still looks like a 4x4...i guess springs are the only thing to suck up the clearance between the tire and wheel well.

    Yeah, As soon as the longtubes are on I'll start saving to for some Koni's and a proline kit. I gotta get this thing running low 13's at least first though.

    using tire height to fill up the wheel well is in order. i have 18" tires that are 26" tall. just a little over stock height. you'd need a tire with about 27" tall to fill it up. so, in 17" the impala ss tire would do the trick. 255/50-17 in 18", a 275/45-18.

    Does the rear offset look off to anyone else?

    I vote to keep them. I think they look really good! They're not your every day, run of the mill, wheels.

    Actually, the rear offset is perfect as far as the way it looks. I will try and get some better pics of the rears as far as the offset goes.

    AFAIK these are the 5X120 (BMW pattern) bolt pattern wheels but I haven't had any problems with lug nuts loosening or anything. I can't believe that the extra .65" would make that much of a difference in the correct bolt pattern for the F-body's.
