I found a set for a decent deal. Just wondering if you guys think they will fit.......

yeah they will fit (depending on if you have the proper offset) but I'm not gonna lie to ya, the car is gonna look very jacked up, kinda like someone is holding it above the ground by the roof!! Plus I dont know if you can lower it on 21's

Here are a couple pics of a GS on 21" Giovanna Drama's. Dont know if you want your to like this. Especially the way the front tire sticks out a little more than the rear!!

If you do though, enjoy and more power to ya!

I see what you mean. It does sort of "hang".
I was looking at Lexanis, I'm not sure I want to drag all that weight around though.
Thanks for the info!

Oh my god man, please dont put those Lexani Amethists on your ride bro! At least the Giovannas are a nice clean 5spoke design!!

Well, on second thought, if you are buying the wheels, then its your choice not mine man, do what 'cha like!!

Would it be okay to make some suggestions for ya? What color is your ride, and what look do you want? Its obvious you want large diameter and chrome!

You know what would look hot?

A set of staggered 20" wheels....

Take a look at RominL, BlueLex, TTurbopimp, MRSypher or GSTrance GS'

I know I left off a lot of nice ones, but these are excellent examples of how it can be done and look OFFICIAL.

This is GSTrance's GS. It looks amazing in person.

Check the gallery for the other guys

Sounds like you already made up your mind that you want something big and something with lots of chrome. YOU should go for it. Take a pic of it and let us all see.

just my opinion, just because its bigger doesnt mean its better.

Lexani and Giovanna are like KMCs of the early 90s. Just my opinion

The rims were actually Lexani Arnage, quite a bit simpler and less gaudy than their other styles.
I may have fallen into the "bigger rims win" mentality so common around here. I realized how stupid that is when a kid at the rim shop was asking about putting 22's on his Aztek. I'd rather not be laughed at like he was, thanks for bringing me back to sanity.

Honestly I just bought the car 2 weeks ago so am a little, well, "budget challenged". Can anyone recommend a nice staggered set for $2000 or so? I like the way Zenetti 5's look, but aren't they in the Giovanna/KMC/Alba category too?

Thanks again for the info. I've read volumes here over the past 2 weeks on everything from detailing to exhaust tips (money order is in the mail to Drew!)

I can understand and relate. I too used to live in kansas. People there have no clue what high dollar wheels look like. they think bigger is better. Try to get quality wheels, you ll be alot happier in the long run.
It may seem too pricey now but in the long run, it ll save you from frequent wheel bend, cracks, pop tires, wheel vibration, chrom chipped, clear coat flaking, etc. Just my opinion and from my experience. I could be wrong.

You should PM NAZTY97 he had a set of Zenetti, he may be able to help you with info.
