Wanted to upgrade my rims and tires, so I picked up these 18's with a set of 225/50/18 Continentals. I'm case anyone was wondering, they fit fine and are bang on between the speedometer and actual speed (GPS tracked).

They don't look bad. I prefer mines to be blue since the paint on my car is blue. Are rims aluminum or steel?

Aluminum.... I posted more for the tire size. I wanted to go with 18's and the recommended size for 18's was 225 45 18, which I found to be just too small looking. Plus, the 45's were about 3-4% high on the speedometer (car showed 103km/h when actual speed was 100km/h). My OCD kicked in and I hated being off by that much (closer to 4%).

The 225 50 18's filled the wheel well up so much better and give me a perfect reading on the speedometer.

I also would have preferred the blue accents on the rims, but these are fine too.
