Those would look hot if they had a machined lip around them. Otherwise...it looks kinda plain to me. Have you thought about getting black wheels with machined lip? Those wheels look great on silver cars!

It's up to you though. Your opinion is what matters because it's your car.

On the other hand, those BBS wheels on the MB in the 2nd pic are nice! Man, I would love to get BBS wheels for my car.

Ya, I love those....thats the Sunday drive car....drive it only on nice days, etc. . . . Spends most of its time in the garage.

Anyways, back to the original question. Does everyone else think they look plain?

i agree i have a buddy who has a SE-R that is silver with gunmetal w/machined lip rims and it looks hot...but with out the lip it just looks kinda bleh....i'd either go with a gunmetal with a polished lip or a set of black with a polished lip like flyvtec said...just my .02

How much is your friend selling them to you for? if the price is good i would take those, but with a lip it makes the car look nicer.

ehh, dun really feel for those rims. They look plain and cheap. The stock rims look much nicer than those rims in my opinion.

they look kinda plain and muddy. lips would give it some dimension and also a moderate drop would help with the aesthetics. just my opinion

they just look like really, really dirty silver rims to me. i kind of hope they are, because otherwise the finish looks blotchy or maybe its just wheel rash in weird spots

there needs to be some contrast between the wheel and the tire...hence the lip...and as far as i know it isnt something you can have done....and if it can be done i can't imagine it would be worth the price of buying used rims and then getting it done...would be better off buying new rims that already come with the lip...

^^Agreed... you definitely need to go either black or gunmetal, but it's got to have a polished lip, the look posted it just way to plain IMO that is. Looks beatiful on the silver car with a polished lip and a dark color wheel. Just my .02 Peace
