Sorry if this has been posted before Im new and did a search on this question but none was found. I just ordered a 2003 Carbon Blue Gt with the V6 and the 17's. My question is I want to get new rims for the car but I have no idea what the proper offset is and the bolt pattern. When I test drive the car they only had the I4 at the dealership and havent recieved any of the V6's yet. If someone that has and know could you please post the dimensions for the rims. Who knows when my new baby will arrive but I will dearly miss my 2000. thank you for all your <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Great Thanks for the info Bugipop <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
well now its time to do some shopping for some new rims and was thinking going with some chrome rims to complement the Carbon Blue and dark tinted windows. Im not really into racing its just more for show. But thanks again for the info and hopefully in a few weeks my car will be off the boat<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Well I finnally got to see a GT in person today but it wasnt mine<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> It was a red one with the 17's but I still havent seen the Carbon Blue with my own eyes except a really dirty I4 at the dealership but it looked black in color. But hopefully when i get mine when its clean and waxed then it might be some chrome rims or might go with some White 18's. I have no idea what some type of rims would look good on this tib. Ive been lookin over at gkmania and theres some really nice T's over there. Its really hard though for what type of rims I want. With my 2000 custom pearl blue I wanted to go with White or go with some type of Stealth look like gunmetal rims on it. Really It all comes down to when I receive the car and look at it in person. Ill post some pics hopefully Next week I hope. The salesman said it should be Monday but who knows?

Any Opinions which route I should take?
