I like the rims, just not a fan of the color.

They kind of remind me of 2nd gen Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T wheels... not in a bad way though. What size are they?

Sorry bout the delayed response tires actually look brand new basically tire size is 225/45/zr17 and as for the rim they are RAYS gram lights 57c with a polished lip not sure about the rim size though I don't really know much bout rims I am assuming this is the size 17/7.5?

I was never a big fan of the whole gold rims either but these have started to grow on me picking them up in like 2 hours or so, I figure if I don't like them I can always repaint them at some point but so far I am digging them just gotta see how they actually look on my car.

800 for all 4 rims/3 tires and then I bought the matching tire for 120 I believe so 920 total, Supposedly they stopped making the rim and he claimed the polished lip is like extremely rare that he never seen another person in the area with the same rims/polished lip so that kind of made me want them even more, and also he said for the rims alone they were 1900 dollars when they were brand new so pretty good deal I'd say.

It's always good to have one done when you alter anything suspension related
