So most people buy bigger wheels and better tires and replace stock wheels/tires. But I was wondering how would my car look if I just change the wheel (same size as stock). Would it look cool, or would it be pointless mod.

By the way, how much does 4 set of 14" wheel cost?
And where do you guys purchase wheels?

Also try www.goodroads.net, and go to good wheels of something like that and you can see what the wheels look like on the car.

Drive it like you stole it.

If you have a 2001 tib like your sig says, then stock wheels are already 15's. Don't go smaller than those.

In my opinion buying aftermarket 15's to keep the same size rim doesn't look very good, and is a bit of a waste of money.

Buy at least 16's, and you should really be getting 17's.

The scary thing is, I came out of my apartment this morning, and looking at my 17's, and thought, "damn, those are too small".

Oh well, I think I'm just going insane.

when you got the 17s did you have to do anything to change the camber or caster angles? or is that JUST when you lower it?<img src=icon_smile_blackeye.gif border=0 align=middle>

The goodroads.net link didn't work.

You'll just have to drive up the drieway SLOW with the drop, or park on the street (i suggest the former). Might rub a little. If the fender wells become a problem, just remove/cut out the offending piece untill all is well.<img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>
