I Need New Tires Soon.. Wheel Questions

I hate the look of my stock steel wheels and hubcaps.. Im a tight wad and I dont want to buy anything fancy.. Would a set of cobalt stock aluminum 4 lug 5 spoke wheels painted black look good on my car? what size are they 16's?



I know a few of you have this setup on your car... my car is a Pontiac.. but the chevy emblem in the center wouldn't bug me too bad.. i could swap it over or just paint it .. Im a really good painter Ive painted many many cars and enough tractors to farm america lmao..

Thanks for your input.. about how much would this cost me? id give 150 for a set of the wheels.. and then buy new tires for them.. idc

Paint isnt an issue for me ..

and i havent found hardly a single set that i like .. im more of the ss/tc wheel kinda person and all the 4 lug wheels on the market are a little too tacky for me

a set of those stock wheels and some springs would complete my car

yea.. use the black alum ones for winter.. put snow tires on them.. and ive seen some black konigs that i liked but they were expensive lol

those alum wheels with a good gloss black base coat and a good coat of clear would be full of win and cheap! haha

Black wheels are the best.. i dont like chrome lol

agreed, i'm not a big fan of chrome either. chrome and black? maybe, yes.

but chrome is just.. blegh to me. i like black.. or gun metal? i think, i can't remember what it was called.

thaaats another reason i was gonna go w/ the stock, $$.
