    Thanks to Red96GT for compiling these pictures!
    it's much easier to browse through! :thumb:

    Im having trouble figuring out what type or wheels, coating and size i should put on my Deep Forest Green SN95. I have a eibach sporline drop. I wouldnt mind going to 18's but i like to race my car. and im hurting for money. Im not sure which direction i should go on coatings cause im going for a darkened look. (i have tinted tails and headlights.) and i keep going back and forth between, black, black chrome, hypercoated, or anthracite.

    HELP me out. Please Post sizes, on Wheels AND tires. Color. Drop etc! also please comment on what you think i should go with.

    Do they make black chrome FR500s? I think they'd look pretty sweet, or black chrome 03 cobras.

    Re: i want to see wheels

    yea post up everything, i have a minumum balance to spend ($1,000) i like chrome, but ive been told that since im going for a dark theme i should go black chrome or black. well black chrome they dont make fr500's in. i dont really want to go to 18's cause that would be more exspensive. (new tires) where as if i went 17's i could at least re use 2 of my exsisting tires.

    These are my black 18 SVT cobras. I love these wheels. Current tires are Pirelli 285/35 in the rear and Kuhmo 275/35 in front

    I think on red, either chrome, hypercoat, or anthracite looks best.

    Re: i want to see wheels

    okay this is getting harder and harder. my little brother has a 04 cobra with chrome cobras and 275's i may see if he will let me put a front a rear on and see how she sits. if they look good, its still going to be a toss up on what type of wheel and coating. i love the hypercoating, but i will not go up to 18's.

    I think the hypercoated are out of the selection since your going to stick to smaller than 18 wheels, for some reason it only comes on 18 inch wheels :dunno:

    Re: i want to see wheels

    ya i wondered y they were only in 18's. I think hypercoated would look best but i understand not wanting to go to a bigger rim. If i was you i would stay away from chrome and go with a "darker" theme i guess you could say.

    Re: i want to see wheels

    chrome wont look bad on dfg i just am not a big 'bling" guy i guess. Hypercoated is a good compromise as it has more depth and not as much bright shine (couldnt think how to say it better u pry know what i mean anyways). I still dont understand y they are no 17's :lame:.
