Not bad...if you do get them, make sure you fully inspect them for any other damage. Better to save up extra money and get larger rims!

they're too small for our cars. It will look very strange. Those would only really look good on a really low, hella flush VW or something similar. I would save more money and go with at LEAST 17's. You won't be sorry if you save a bit longer!

check the for sale thread here, you can even get some good deals. here's one good deal;

Well those are nice wheels, do keep in mind that if you are going for aesthetics appeal the bigger the better.

But in the end whatever makes you happy man!

rocking steelies is better than 15's IMO. you'll get made fun of much more often with those than you r steelies. If I were you I'd put that money into paying the car off sooner. That way you can buy larger rims. Trust me on this one man!

I know how you feel man, I'm still rocking 15" from my last DD. I figured it's still better than steelies. But then again steelies without hub caps don't look bad either.

IMO depends how long you are going to take till you pay off the car. If it'll take you 3 years might was well jump on these. But if it'll take you 6 months then wait it out. Oh and bargain the seller down to 175$, if you can get it at the price, why the hell not?
