Opinions on rims n body kit

I am thinking of getting Saleen polished 18X 9 rims, and put the biggest tires that will fit on the back. I also am thinking of buying the saleen body kit and spoiler, im not looking to convert my cobra into a saleen, i just cant help liking the body kit and rims. Also the black or gunmetal black saleen rims look kinda cool, but im not sure if thats gonna be too much black on my black on black on black car. And i think i like polished better than chrome, chrome draws too much attention away from a beautiful car IMO, but hey maybe im nuts. I really like the 281 spoiler though, think it will look tits on my car. Can i get some opinions please? Thanks!

If you balance it out right, you can make it look good. Like,

- Diamod Clear Headlights
- SS Saleen Inserts
- Chrome Saleen Rims

Or if you go for the black on black a polished lip will balance it back out.

The lip of the rim is where the tire actaully meets the rim.

i like the whole saleen kit minus the rims, they are nice but there are FAR better choices out there such as the roush 18 inch rims... they blow the saleens out of the water....

other rims such as a 03 cobra rim in 18 inch look nice... just be SURE to upgrade your front brakes to nice red calipers such as the bullit has it really sets of 18s.
