First of all, theres no one here thats 15- so you dont need to talk to us like we are... Second, you realize that you'd be swapping your hubcaps for 15 inch rimzzzz right? So they would be the exact same size as the stock wheels except for being real rims, now THAT would be retarded... You'd have to get a whole new set of low profile tires if you want any self respecting sized rims on your car.

Go with the rimzzzz. Go bigger when you do. And then keep what you have for winter wheels since they have new tires on them.

if you get 15" wheels you will regret it. and probably just spend more money on larger ones down the road. just save up for larger ones. 17" and 18" are most peoples favorites...

Whoa hold on. What's this whole deal with self-respecting rims being bigger than 15's?

Thats bullshit. A "self respecting" rim can be 15". It doesn't have to be some 200$ rims. you will lose power if you go with bigger rims, it will handle worse in the snow, and it will be a bumpier ride if you go with lower profile tires. If you stick with the 15"s then you you will keep the power, hadle better and save money on the rims because they wont be monsterous. And if you get the rims too big with an awful style then your car will have a distinct "ricer" look to it. Trust me go with the 15"s

It doesn't sound like he's going to do much racing... He's more worried about putting nice wheels on the car. He'll buy 15's and regret it. He can go clear up to 18's and it's not really going to hurt any performance. If they are a decent rim, he won't look like a ricer. He'll have his stock 15's for winter, so there won't be any handling issues. He just needs to not buy 15" aftermarket rims, and regret it later. Even if he were to want to make the car faster, street racing is illegal and highly stupid anyway (not to mention a topic we DON'T talk about on this site!!), he can swap to the 15's at the track.

Is there anyone on here that has 15" rimS? I'd be curious to see what they looked like with low profile tires and without lowering the car.

WTH happened to my Sig? O_o
