15"s?

Is it lame if I just buy 15"s? I've wanted new rims for my car for a while now, and I'm not gona have cash for rims and tires any time soon... And my tires are fine. Plus, one of my wheels are bent, and I need to replace it. It helps me justify the rims.

Idk they look small to me, it just depends on what you want. if you like them then I would say do it, but i never would!

I don't think it is lame. But I would save some more money and buy bigger better rims and tires.

Everyone has their own style. As long as the wheels do not clash with your car, then 15's would be fine. I however would save up and when the tires need replaced, find a nice looking inexpensive wheel set and got to aleast 16's.

it depends on the rims... some rims will look retarded in 15"s and some will look sick!!! i know you will HAVE to lower it for it to look good though..

butt hurt?

15's are pretty cool but we have huge wheel wells man. you're gonna have a lot of wheel gap to deal with unless you pull fenders and stuff. ugh...I hate these..... not even gonna say

Just to give you a idea....these are the stock chevy 15's from the dealer on my car...I am selling them now since i bought some 17's




Turns out the 17's i bought aren't any bigger in term of diameter, all it is is more rim but less rubber....
