Looking around for "summer" rims, for my car. Found these at TireRack. What do you guys think is a good color/look for a blue ?

White has been overdone on all those 1999-2001 2.5 RS with white racing stripes.

Gold is a bit of a show off, and they need to be professionaly cleaned or something.

Black by its self, looks like I have plain Steel wheels on.

Figured I go with Black with Red.

P.S. Yes I do start a lot of threads Mavrik =)

not bad. you looking to use stock tires on the rims? otherwise I suggest going 18's.

I may have to sell my set of black 08 BBS rims I got... but holding on to them until I absolutely have to sell.

No.

17x7.5? your stock rim is 17x8
Make sure you get some thing with at least an 8 inch width so you can go wider on the rubber.
