They are... winter rims. And yes, I think it is posing too.. but... I have new rims for the spring. Rev Model II. That is why I was willing to sell them if anyone was interested. Anyone know where to find 17" winter tires? Can't seem to locate any.
Keep the silver rims and send me the gunmetal rims! 
I prefer the silver rims on a mid to dark coloured car, personally... I think that the picture of the silver rims makes the car look higher, just the way the photo was taken. Looks lower with gun metal but I think it's just the photo.
Really what the hell is an SVT poser? SVT origanlly was fords, Special Veichels team that created aftermarket parts for fords, Kinda like Steeda/Saleen/Kenny brown etc....So what the hell is an SVT poser. I have the entire SVT ground effects kit on my zx-3 does that make me a Poser? I also have the motor to back it up, but i do not feel that i need to prove my self just becuse I have an SVT ground effects equipped car.
