Opinions on Wheels

Looking at picking up a new set of wheels and after looking around, Amazon is a surprisingly good resource. Didn't expect to find much I liked but I was wrong.

I narrowed down some options (just looking at styles I like currently, then will look for the correct sizes), having a tough time deciding so I'd like some opinions.

The car is a Red/matte black and smoked theme at the moment.

The more subtle styles:

Amazon.com: Momo Quantum Wheel with Anthracite Finish (18x8"/5x114.3mm): Automotive

Amazon.com: Enkei FD-05- Performance Series Wheel, Gunmetal Machined (17x7" - 5x114.3/5x4.5, 40mm Offset) One Wheel/Rim: Automotive

Amazon.com: 20x8 Konig Toxxin2 (Black / Machined) Wheels/Rims 5x100/114.3 (TN08T04455): Automotive

And now the more wild:

Amazon.com: Konig Unknown Gloss Black Wheel with Mirror Machined Face (19x8"/5x114.3mm): Automotive

Amazon.com: Helo HE866 Chrome Wheel with Black Accents (20x8.5"/5x4.5, 5"): Automotive

Amazon.com: American Racing AR900 Wheel with Satin Black Machined (18x7.5"/5x4.5"): Automotive

Not a huge fan of either of them, but if I had to choose it would be the Enkei's.

I was leaning towards those or the American Racing ones. I like the Helos but eh it's probably too much chrome.

Yeah, I'll look into what sizes are available when I narrow down the styles I like. The Enkei's are made for drifting, so they may not come in a big enough size, but I'll look into it.

Just in the looking around phase at the moment. I looked at AM, but really didn't find anything I liked, all too plain-jane.

The wheels in the second link aren't too bad. The first ones are more of an import or tuner wheel. Stay away from 8" wide wheels. I'd be looking at 9-9.5" fronts and 10-10.5" rears.

Of course, just gathering some opinions and other sources for wheels. It's difficult to imagine each one actually on the car though. If I was better with Photoshop I could mock something up and really be able to tell if they would look good.

As a side note, does anyone know the stock offset for a 2011 V6 Base? 17" wheels but I want to make sure the offset isn't too crazy and have to get spacers.

I THINK it's 35mm but I want to be sure.

American Racing first, Momo second. But with your theme are you thinking all black for them? Would look best IMO

I agree. Hes selling them for a great price.

Wheels are a big expense and make all the difference in the look of any car...dont cheap here. Buy some thing you could live with for a long time instead of settling on some thing you're not sure about. Stay away from super cheap wheels, they are cheap for a reason.
