Default SC400 Rims and exhaust questions

Hallo I am fairly new to this site But I love how all you guys are all into the car and I am starting to be that way to COOL

Ok I have a bady kit on my car that is just like this one in the pic. I am having a hard time deciding what exhaust tip I should put on there the one I wanted the manufacturer discontinued it. and Now I am not sure what would look good. the opening is not round its kind of oval.

As far as rims I am open to suggestions I am leaning towards black... Any help is appreciated.

Given how serious a number of the experts on their forums take their wheel knowledge, saying that you want black rims tells them nothing. Give information regarding your desires:
(1) diameter (17-20")
(2) style (number of spokes or mesh, flat faced or lipped, etc)
(3) budget ($2k with tires - for example)

I am sure that the wheel experts would quickly be able to chime in with options for you that are available in black if you gave them more to work with.


Regarding exhaust, please do more than just tips.

I have factory gold exhaust tips on mine (a little faded but hey). I think they're unique-looking, highlights the dual exhaust and goes well with my gold/tan paint. I would recommend some factory chrome tips that fit perfectly (not a fan of chrome but for tips, i guess they're okay) or you could just leave it with no tips.

rims are HRE 547s

actually since i just installed my ikeya control arms, the tires are pushed out even more.

side shot, i'll get some new shots this weekend since i did go slightly lower with the control arms, and i'll also show why i went for these control arms.

Just about any SC pic will have wheels or tips shown in it somewhere. I saw a nice white SC with black wheels on CarDomain that looked very clean and really brought out the lines of the SC a lot.
Click the image to open in full size. See more of this car here. I usually don't like black wheels on that many cars but those actually looked pretty good on the SC. Also, that SC has tips. If you want to see my gold tips, you can go to my CarDomain link in my signature. I've thought about getting the gold re-plated at some point but I really don't have the money for...well, anything right now. I just had an $1850 maintenance/tune-up job done on it recently so money is REALLY tight right now.
