Default New rims,Opinions?

I traded my old ugly fake chrome rims for these,panther 519 vector's on 245/35/20's I think they look great,they fill the car out a little more (it doesn't have an engine in it that's why its sitting high in the front)

Looks good man. There big, but still looks classy, not a silly Donk. Guess you'll need to update your Avatar now.

The one advantage to a Donk: Oil change without a jack.

They don't. Premature wear on tie rods, ball joints, steering.... the whole suspension.

it also throws your speedometer off a little,il eventually go down to 18's when I have the money,i like the way these tires stick out some,i wouldn't mind getting some half inch spacers,but not those cheap ones,ive had a bad experience with them
