I am going to be upgrading my stock steel rims in the near future and I am having trouble deciding what I want to do to my car. Basically, I have decided to go with Buddy Club rims because I can get pretty good deals on them, and i absolutly love the design and color of them. The choice is weither or not to get bronze/gold or gun metal grey rims. The car is completly stock and is green, 2 door LS.
Here are the two diffrent choices on rims.

[i]...Gold/Bronze?

...or Gun Metal?

Also here is a pretty bad pic of my car which you can kinda base your choice off of. Also, thats not me, its my dad.



Thanks a lot guys!

I hated the tan leather interior at first, but eventually I fell in love with it. I really love the black interior, but it seems that there isnt very many tegs on the road that are LS Special Editions. I think its unique. Does anyone think I should go smaller than 17"'s? And what about drops? If i get 1.25 kit, will I rub? I dont think so, but I figure I might as well get a correct answer.

I'd go for the gold/bronze look. I ran bronze Rota's on my old Cypress Green Teg, and I thought it was a good color combo.

Both rim colors look amazing on your car, but like Brandon said, the gold/bronze will compliment the interior more.
Nice choice of rims also BTW.

I have those rims in gunmetal (as you can see by my sig) and they look f**kin great on my gunmetal teg. I think either would look good on your LS. You will not rub with a 1.25 drop, in fact im dropping 1.7 by the end of this month, you'll see pics!

EDIT: oh ya, and I got em for about $700 on EBay

I'd go with the 17's. Its a harsher ride but, you get used to it.I went with 17's on my teg and they rubbed. I have a 1.5 inch drop. The drop wasn't the cause of the rub it was the offset of the rims. I had to roll the fenders to get the proper clearance. If your wheels offset is close to stock then you should have no problems but, if the offset is smaller there could be a rub on the rear but, your going with a 1.25 in drop so you'll probably be ok.

damn those rims are nice. I think bronze would look really good with green. Dont go Gold, looks too much like a rally car in my opinion.

You should hit up Built4speed (i think) the photochop master and ask him to photochop your car with each rims on and see which one would look good.

yes, IMO go with 16"s. you can get you car lower, and still have nice sized rims. the bigger your rims, the higher your car will stand, ever with a drop. IMO

I really like the first rim posted. I think bronze goes best with green. PM me if you want a pic.

i would go with the bronze/gold color.. it matches already exisiting the tan/green scheme.

depending on your road conditions u may or may not want to get 17's.. if your town consists mainly of unpaved craggly rocky roads pothole filled roads your 17's wouldnt be the happiest campers on the road..

also consider tire prices when purchasing rims.. tires get expensive with size...
