I might be picking up these wheels for my car soon. Would someone please try and photoshop them on a black stratus?

I don't have any really good pics to give, but I'll post up what I have.


Here is a pic of the actual rim.

Only two came with tires. I have to take the whole car to the tire shop, and have tires put on the other two wheels to be able to put them on. And I'm going to do that after I finish building/installing my new engine. Which is at the machine shop for at least another two weeks.

..... and my parents don't know I bought them, and probably would be a little.... trying to guilt trip me if I throw them on now.

here you go, the picture of the rim kind of made it unrealistic.

heres with it lowered:

You know, when a picture is taken of the side of a car, you can only see two wheels at a time. So, why do you need all four wheels mounted, again? :scratch:

because I'm not going to just put two wheels on my car. Why would I do that? I'll do all 4 when I'm able to put them on and drive away.

I just wanted to get a preview of how it would look.

He didn't imply to put 2 wheels on the car and drive away.. he meant to jack up one side of the car, put both wheels on, and lower it back on the ground and look at it to gauge an opinion to see whether or not you like them. It literally takes 5 mins.

Then again - I would only assume this opinion whether or not it would look right would be done PRIOR to purchasing them. At this point, I still don't see why you're curious when you already own them. But - whatever floats your boat I guess.

I was just curious how it would look, I bought them for functionality. They clear my Brembo brakes, and are lighter than the wheels I currently have. Thats why I bought them. The way they look is just a result of swapping a better part in. I have spent absolutely ZERO dollars on looks for looks sake (although I'm thinking of getting a stubby antenna just for looks). I didn't mount the intercooler just cause it looked cool, and wouldn't buy wheels for that reason either.

Some of us care about improving the way the car performs.......instead of just looking cool:fawk:
