Talking What Would Be Best on This Beauty?

It's a base 2007 Pontiac G5 with the 7-speaker Pioneer system. I want to add a fair amount of chrome like door handle, some trim on the trunk and door edges, and maybe some on the inside trim. I want some black 17 in wheels with the chrome edge. Does anyone have anymore suggestions or pictures to help with reference? BTW The Firestorm is getting the window decal here next week! Yay!

The chrome trim has a tendency to chip after time and the end result is not good after one or two winters. And it looks like rice. Your car though, so if its your style, well...

Dont do the chrome, honestly. You'l be glad you didnt.
Springs definitely to lower it. Look into black rims with red lip....or all black rims...or black with chrome lip....those are my suggestions on a red g5/cobalt

Yeah, not doing chrome. Just saw a G5 with a lot of chrome. Looks like crap. I may do some race stripes B-2 body kit and the wheels. How much were your wheels G?

I agree with G, red with black accents looks sick as eff and you could paint your calipers red and have those black rims = sick

I've got black rims with a chrome lip, they're awesome when everything is all washed and waxed, but I have a black car so it doesn't last long. If you wanted chrome i'd suggest going to polished aluminum instead, doesn't have the same shine, but it doesn't chip and flake like chrome will
