SO, this car came with the performance package. Brembos, upgraded sways, springs, and tires. Summer tires. 100% DO NOT WORK IN THE SNOW, tires. So my thoughts go something like this:

1. slap some blizzaks on the stock 19s
2. buy some aftermarket wheels and tires for the summer!

question1 - Anyone know how much the stock pirellis sell for usually?
question2 - What wheels and tires should I pick up? Right now I'm looking at something like these:

Gets a 9.5" wide wheel, so we should be able to slap on some wider rubber in the back. This car needs it.

question3 - what tires? Think I should just keep the stock Pirellis up front for the new wheels and then buy some nittos or something for the rear?

Thanks for the input folks!

I'm not sure about the drop, but I like the style of the wheels:



I think with the tints, this car can pull of black wheels... thoughts? Looked over the wheels w/Sarah last night and she too thought she'd prefer black over the polished aluminum.

Black wheels seemed to be played out, IMO. Let me look.....

I'm getting the matte black ones eventually. I don't care if black is played out, matte black looks phenomenal on Grabber Blue.

With those SVE's you have to buy the lugs and the TPMS sensors(not sure if you can reuse the stockers). In total you'll spend $1930 for those.

So it looks like you can reuse you stockers, just need to get them out of your wheels.

Is the bolt pattern same as 05-09? If so black saleen 20" 11 spokes would look siiiiick and are cheap

I wonder if they fit over the brembos though? I see they have stoptech on this car... is that the same?

The wheels are pretty expensive, but that shit is so HOT. It really sets the car off for me. End of thread right there, 18" rubber will be cheaper. You are looking at a little over $2K for just the wheels.

And I can only imagine the money that Weld commands for those, too. ^ Auto-update didn't auto-update.

lawdy! $2k in just wheels? :eek3: Might be a bit too "drag car"-ish for Sarah's taste.

My problem with the majority of the wheels being posted is that they have no depth. The wheels almost look 2 dimensional.
