    found the rims i want for the 99

    Okay guys so i am set on the rims i want to get for my 99.

    i am looking at getting them from newstalgia, the only deal is i don't know anything about wheels, ie. backspacing i will find the bolt circle from just searching through here, i have seen it before.

    I want to go with 18x 10 all the way around and want to be able to at least fit 305's on there nothing less.

    The other deal is that the rims come in a satin finish but i really want to have the center be colored race gold, should i buy the rims from them and have them colored or buy straight from the company?

    Any help would be much appreciated, here is the link to the wheels.

    They look nice...personally, I'd get 17x10 all around and put some 315s on them...18" tires are a little too expensive for me.

    yeah the reason i am going with 18's is to give me a little more ground clearance, i don't mind scraping every once in awhile but i am going to be runnning the APS TT setup and i sure as hell don't want to scrape then.

    At 770 a pop i think it is fairly priced, compared to HRE, forgeline, and other high end rim companies, plus it will be rims i have yet to see on an f-bod around here. I am going for unique.

    18" rims aren't going to change your ride height, cause you're supposed to reduce the sidewall of the tire when you increase the size of the rim (proportionally). In other words, for your Speedometer to stay accurate, you need to have your rim/tire combo at a total diamter of about 25"-26".

    well my zr1's next to my buddies 18's look like a pretty good difference, that is why i say that. If i am correct we both run 35 for the sidewall, not sure though, i have to check.

    Anybody on the coloring and the backspacing though???
