if you could put a bigger picture of your car that would be cool.

Really depend what you're looking for in a wheel. Aside from amount of spokes and the many different finishes out there you want to consider if lightweight, the price, ability to have wheel taken apart (2piece), staggered and of course quality. Soo many factors to take in these days when buying wheels. Give us a lil hint what you want or even some samples of wheels you like would be great. Good luck with purchase

I can't help you with alternative wheels. However black wheels on silver looks dope imo... For $7ish you can buy some plasti dip. see if you like it..if not peel it off. This at least gives you a lil change regarding your wheels without spending a lot of $. I did it to my DD (which is silver btw) and it's held up good so far, about 6 weeks and a couple car washes now, still holding strong.

Yeah looks bad ***, and while you got your wheels off you could always paint your calipers. I think it adds a lot to the space between the spokes...anyway I look forward to seeing what you do. Below is how my calipers turned out
