What to do with the sonic blue??
 
After two years of driving my SVT on these butter rims I've finally bent one. So of course this is as good excuse as any to upgrade these wheels. So now my question is what would look good on a Sonic Blue SVT focus?

Gunmetal looks nice but is pretty played.
Black multispokes have always been a favorite but also pretty common.
Should get a new stocker and powdercoat the rest?

I'm open to all suggestions as long as they aren't way too costly.. I'm still just a kid with a minimum wage paying job. Anything under a grand for all 4 rims would be cool.

And btw it's bone stock as of now exterior wise, but over winter break I'm planning to put on the 2002+ euro grill or maybe the paintable ST170 grill along with the black inpro ST170 replicas.

Now help me choose some wheels!

id go with somthing black with a polished lip, but dont go multispoke, keep the 5 spoke, id say something with a flat face, almost like the RS wheels. its either that or stay with something silver.

powdercoat the stockers gloss black.......MMM.....I saw one 2 weeks ago, looks PIMP......

I would absolutely love to have some RS wheels silver or black (like Tribals car if i'm correct). The work to go into making those wide as wheels work on my car would be pretty stressful. Something similar would be cool though.

I love the gloss black svt wheels just not sure how they would look on sonic blue. They look amazing on meansvt's car though.

yeah, im just not down with much over 5-6 spokes. pain to clean, and you cant get a decent look at the other side at speeds. i like looking at my painted calipers and slotted rotors[thumb]

Check this thread and i have quite a few rims that have been on my car you can check out. It will give you an idea of what they all look like:

I didnt vote because there are alot that look good.

Thanks for the link. I've looked in there a few times for ideas.

Scrammer have you considered powdercoating your stockers gloss black? Your car looks mean as hell and in my opinion the complete blacked out look would make it look even meaner. Just a thought.

I'm pretty interested in the ST200's as well, but is there anywhere to get them, besides ebay.co.uk for a somehwat reasonable price. I checked bat-inc a few days ago and saw they were 200+ a wheel!

If you're interested in some RS wheels, I saw them on sale at massive for 89$ each. That's a real bargain for some 18 X 8 OZ wheels. Didn't vote either.

I am partial to the EAP rims... Well, really they were what sold the car for me! Here is a pic...
