How Do You Think This Would Look?

"http://www.buywheelstoday.com/products/Tuner+%28Black+%2F+Machined%29.bwt" <-- Copy Paste

They would be 15" because I don't really want to buy new tires, I still have the ones from the dealership and I only have 3,900 Miles on the car. If you know of some better looking wheels for a similar price please inform me.

I was also thinking of Custom Headlights But I don't know if I should get Gen 1 or Gen 3 Chrome vs Black and I was thinking 8000K Hids and Blue LEDs.

I was then thinking Leatherette Car Seat Covers ? Buy Coverking Custom Vinyl Seat Covers at Customcovers
for the front and back seats Black/Charcoal. If you can find a better price or think neoprene or similar I would appreciate the incite.

Thanks

Don't get 15s, you'll regret it. Do what I'm doing and rock the stickers until the tires wear out and then get rims and tires. 15s are just too small

Agreed, save for wheels and tires in a 17 or 18, keep your steelies for wintertime. Winter is almost here anyways.

Being @ 3,900 miles its going to take a while to wear these out Though I know that probably for the best. What kind of Wheels do you think would look good? Those ones are only $68 not bad considering some get to crazy amounts of money. Also What size 18" or something?

BTW How should I protect the paint in the winter from the salt and all the gunk they put on the roads?

I'm only at about 6000 miles myself. It'll be worth it in the end though

My iPhone added an angry face for some reason... Odd lol

First, I agree just wait and buy 17's or 18's, if those are the Continental will not take that long to wear them out, mine were replaced at about 30K.
Second, GM already protected the paint at he factory, if you are still worried just wash the car every week and use the belly wash at one of the TOUCHLESS car washes. All depends on where you are at also.
