    Rims

    Well to start off I really like my stock WS6 rims, but the chrome has wore off of them badly, almost looks like someone used acid on them before.
    If I could find a place that can re-dip wheels in chrome that would be ideal and if anyone knows how much that would cost in a BPF that would help too, if not I was thinking of just gettin new rims and this is what im looking at.

    my next question is will 18's rub? I'm probably going with GY Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires.

    Good looking wheel.

    FWIW, I run Simmons FR18's with a 295/35/18 out back (18x11) and there's no rubbing... I could probably run a 305 and still not have an issue. Getting the right backspacing is the key.

    Good luck!

    I got a quote from a local place to have a set of wheels re chromed for $650. The wheels you have chosen are not wide enough to rub so you will be fine.

    Those wheels look better in the black w/mach lip finish than chrome. Nevertheless, they're too skinny for a WS6.

    It's the Clearcoat on the rim coming off.
