Default BEST 18 inch setup? Pearl whites...

My last SC had a set of gorgeous Blitz 03 in 18s on it. Trying to decide what wheels to put on this new one ( I know I know, I said I won't mod, but you know the bug is in the veins)

1) Prefer 18 inch wheels
2) HAS to have lips (love the deep dish)
3) Will go staggered like I went last time
4) No Black rims

What are your thoughts? Have been out of the SC world for a few years, so don't know whats hot and whats not. Appreciate your input. Also pictures on Pearl White would be great, or other colors.

Beauty is in the eye's of the beholder.
With that said. The BEST for YOUR car is up to you. Everyone that post will have there opinion of the BEST to them. But if your asking for everyone's opinion. Let me suggest a set of Work VS-XX in 18x9 and 18x10.. with a 35 offset. I would get them in the gold face and polished lip. Or you can go with Volk Racing or Rays Engineering GT-U same style same color. Or even the Volk GT-N with a silver face. But if you want to go big or go home i would suggest the Ace AM-010. With the machine finish. 19x8 and 19x10. That will give you more of a luxury look.

THe work Euroline seems like they should be on GS or LS cars for me Not doing it for me.

I personally like the wheels SC400on20s post on the gallery. 5 spoke, deep lip, rivets. Not sure what kind they are.

I think it depends on your body style. The 92-96 looks great with an older wheel, such as the Euroline DH, pictured on the Soarer above. My choice for this body style would be Work Equips. On of my favorites for sure.

On the other hand, if your car is 97+, or you have a kit, more modern wheels will really set it off.
