In the market for new Wheels.

Well after some hard thinking im going to give up on the 18's and go to a 17 inch wheel. I really love the look of my Velox VX-8s but im thinking of changing it up. I really like the deep lip of them so the new wheels must have a nice lip on it. Im not to keen on rims that dont have the lip but would consider if its a nice clean shape and not over the top. I would like to get Black with polished lip but I can always paint them if not avalible. So if you know a nice clean looking rim that would look good on my car (pictured below) Please share it Im open to almost anything right now.

Chrome uhhh no. OZ uhh way out of my reach.


Ok about my current wheels and possiblity of selling. The whole reson im lookinf for new ones is because of a insident that happend on Sat. I hit a nice chunk of road that basicly was a speedbump in the middle of the highway. I bent the right front rim really bad to where it wont hold air so it would need fixed or repaired in order to install priced @ $125 to fix or $150 to replace plus paint. The other 3 all have some kind of damage be it minor curb rash or chiped paint or very minor bends. They hold air but have some blems. 1 of the tires is in great shape about 85% tread left, the other 3 are in desprate need of replacement. Tire rack sells them for $550 a set with road hazard. So what is probly going to happen is Im going to scrap them or sell them cheap I havent made up my mind I waiting for my insurance company to figure out if VDOT will cover the cost to fix my car or not so we'll see.
