Re: Buying rims...

99-01 the stock size was 15". The premiums in 01 had 16x7.75" alloys.

02-04 all the v6's came stock with 16x7.75" rims. That was the only size available for the v6's, as 17's were the only size for the 01-04 GT's.

Where is your area??? They're $500+ here for what's left of curb raped rims, no tires even mentioned. If someone even wants to sell, they never do.

I think you'll be happier with larger than stock size, fills the wheel wells better and looks cleaner, but it's all your opinion, I'm sure you have your reasons.....

I have no opinion lol. I just want them to fit the tires I have now cuz they're only 5 months old and are still in great condition.

Ohh, well I'd either sell those on Craigslist with your old rims or wait, I got my 18s off Craig's list and other than having to deal with truck tires till I got my low pros it was wayy cheap, got rims and tires for 300, and sold my old ones for 150

Re: Buying rims...

Well if you have tires that fit a 16" rim than that's the only size that's going to fit with that tire.

Obviously upgrading to 17's or 18's look better and offer more options, but they do cost more. In your case I'd modify your 16's (either spray or plasti dip them) and live with them until you wear our your tires. In the meantime save up for some decent rims/tires.
