Got new rims!!

So I was finally able to get new rims...I got the Mach 1 -18 X 9 chrome rims! The tires are 245/40/18. <<<I didn't really know what to go for and they had a really good deal on these so I went for it. All together with tax and installation and shipping (rims) it was a little under $1200. I got a good deal. Got the rims off ebay for $510. Took these pics just as the sun was setting. Now I just need to get my springs so I can get my ride lowered soon. Let me know what u think.

I was actually think about doing that in the future. My front brakes are getting to their end so I might do it when I change the front brakes.

They have the same design as the ones on my Mach 1, but, in chrome. SWEET! Where'd you get them? Are those 18X9 in the rear?

the chrome mach 1's look good. just paint your calipers and be done with it its easy to do just takes a little prep work and doing VERY light coats and letting each dry or you get runs thats about it, oh and use high temp paint. the rotors look rusted cuz its probably been in the rain or something. around the hub is normal to get rust on, you can sand it and paint that area black if you wish, dont worry about gettnig paint onthe rotor a few stops will cut it off no problem.

rotating is a very very good idea. rotate them every oil change and align it every 6k at least, if it stays in alignment maybe longer but mine alwasy needed it. Also i would definatly get some maximum motorsport CC plates and get a shop that really knows alignment to get you the best specs for tire wear cuz the stock specs will wear the inside to much. I cant remember my specs but i think the negative camber is like .5 not sure though.
