well lowenharts they make really good wheels i love my wheels.. but they cost a arm and a leg.... but hey what ever your taste is go for it.. what help me pick out rims was i went to the rims shop and they had this program where you can put your ride color and tint, drop everything so you can get a idea on how it would look...

yep, definitely chrome. spinners... they have to be 19" b/c smaller than that would look weird. i dunno, myabe im used to seeing 20" spinners on mtv cribs. i like these rims. i saw them on a white ls430 dealer car and omg it's hot!

18" trd chrome

I really like chrome rims. For me, I certaintly want to get 19 inch chrome rims in the Giovanna series. I dunno yet because I am selling the ones I have right now (18 inch Verde Stilletos). If I dont sell them, I ll put the spinners on em since they are deep dish.

Here are 18" enkei 1/5s. I really like 5 spokes, and At italia Inox's are crazy 5 spoke. they have them on tirerack.com

Hey MR LEX good to hear you are thinking about new wheels. Lowenharts are major grip since they have modular consturction, and high quality materials (they are also kinda image conscience so that jacks the price a little too)

I think you should go with 19" chrome, no spinners. To be honest your ride has all the flash it needs man, you could have regular 19" chrome and no spinners and still shine on someone with spinners. I also feel that trend is on its way out (especially the add on spinners)

I dont know your budget, at the low end I would say something like Zenetti Five, or HP EVO, or TSW.

On the highend, maybe some Works or Autocoutures?

its all on you. To be really honest, I think you shoud put some chrome on there man, good luck

Hey MrLex, dont worry about Tire rack.. They have a crap selection.. I dont know about the US, but these rims are popular here in Japan.. The ones in this pic are pretty plain. But I am looking at a chrome set, that have a bluish platinum reflection when the sun shines the other way on them.. Not a big fan of spokes I must say.. I prefer the disc type wheels...
