    Smile help picking out rims

    I am saving up money to get new rims. I am wanting 8' wide in front and 10' wide in the back. My budget is about $1,300 (without the tires). It is for a 2000 Z28 that is silver. Please leave your opinions

    8' wide in front is too narrow go with 9.5 front and 11' rear, that would make it look tight!!!!!!!

    im usually not a fan of c6 replicas, but these are sweet cuz of the lip, and this color would look good on silver.

    18" 5 star with a decent lip? decent price?

    basically if youre gonna get an aftermarket set of rims, imo they need a lip

    i had a set of kumhos on the car when i got it, they were brand new and i took them off. one of the worst tires ive driven on. they rode decent, but didnt hook up for shit! got a set of BFG KDW's and i couldnt be more happy.

    You can get them in a 10.5" wide size, but you'll need a 20mm hub spacer (H&R has them) so you'll end up with a +45 offset which would be a perfect fit.
