Yea their a bit too small, you can find some Bullitts on Craig's for like 300 bucks and those would look much better. Also a drop would make it look better

Tires are definitely too small, even for the fronts, and I feel you could do much better with the rims on your car.

Congrats on the fastest color around

The rims arent too bad. Its just hard to tell if the fronts and rears are the same size. If they are, it makes it impossible to get the staggered look. There is a set called SVE drift and many of the vendors here sell them with tires for a great package price.

I doubt you can go wider of a tire on that rim. Get some different rims were you can go wider

Black chrome is great, but be aware, it is hard to maintain.
Many people have had bad luck with the black chrome from pitting to peeling.

Mine, personally held up great. Just sharing what people have shared with me over the years.

Here they are just so you can visualize it. If you maintain them, they do look amazing.

Where could you get them with a colored lip. I do like bullitts too, I drove by a local tire shop today and saw they had some grey 17s for $300
