    Well im in the market for some new wheels and so far i got 18" wheels on all fours and im debating on either going 17's or 18's
    and the wheels i was looking for are either dd bullits or dd cobra r's and what do you guys think would look best anthracite or black?
    if anyone can photoshop them on my ride that would be sweet

    I actually really like your current wheels. But if you want new ones I would recommend you staying with 18s if you can afford it. As far as what I would go with if I were you, I would definately pick DD bullits for a black on black look.

    I had 18s. Im very happy I went with 17s. Tires were about half as much! Dont feel as quilty lighten em up. More choices for tires too. Basically all around cheaper and better choices and will probably weigh a little less.

    I really think 18's fit our cars perfect. If I wouldn't have went with Weld Prostars, I was going to get 18's. Those Bullitt's with the rivets are pure sex, those are what I would go with. I think you can only get the deep dish Cobra R's in 17".

    A 245/40/18 will not work on a 18X10 wheel, IMO you need a minimum 285/35/18 to make a 10" wheel look good.
