New Rim Set-up Purchased Today for Cheap.

Picked up some rims.

18x8 for $175 plus a 30 minute drive. Doesn't seem to bad of a deal as of yet the guy had them on a G5, he must have sucked at parking (even though you never need to parrallel here in MN). I have seen lots of guys with 18x7.5 but not many with the 18x8 What tire should I look at as far as size go? I was thinking a little bit bigger side wall to possibly minimize the monster truck effect.

Pics from the ad. They look like they have some black on them, they don't. haha



Some cleaning and sanding work and then some bondo over the curb rash.





Then blasted with primer.


I love this pic. Its the money shot!




Next will be a light sand job on the primer, like a 1000 grit. Just to get rid of anything that may have fallen into the primer while drying such as hairs(I already know this happened with a Husky around). Then I blast it with the Gloss black and then I will blast it again and again and again and then wet sand and then clear. Progress pics will be up.

maybe put bright pink with blue dots on them on my white car?

There are spots for these silly rivet things that I pulled out, you can see them in the pics. I am going to tap the holes and put real bolts in there and probably paint the heads of them white.

Thanks. Any ideas on tires for you 18 inch guys? They are 18x8. I am just wondering what I should use for size.
