    Ok guys, finally got the somewhat controversial sportmax's on and got some time to take semi-respectable, non-cellphone pictures. I have to say, I really like them (I'm just high on gold wheels...), so let me know what you all think about em, whether it's good or bad!

    I had a lot more, but I could only put up 10.

    Let's begin, sorry about the waterspots on my wheels and my filthy windows...

    What prompted your decision to choose Sportmaxs as your first mod?

    why did you stretch your tires when your that high off the ground? are you planning to drop it sometime soon?

    firelizard, actually I'm not really sure what made me go with them...other than the tires that were on the car when I bought it were worn out haha. I've always been drawn to them, but just never actually had anything that they would work with. Before I bought my RL, a 96 RL came into the shop where I worked and for a split second I got a vision I guess you could say, I saw a white RL with gold 19s on air with tint and I think a small lip I'm just trying to build that car that I saw in my kind of a wierd explanation, sorry. I think they really turned out quite nicely on the car though, a lot nicer than I would have expected.

    yeah, hopefully very soon it will be on air.

    ehhh, i'll have to see it dropped before i can make an opinion. I personaly would think a darker gold would look better. About sportmax in general, they are def not VIP, but they might look good with a drop on your car.

    yeah, I was debating on doing air or wheels first, but i needed tires badly

    Its ok. It wouldnt looks so bad if it didnt look like you were about to off-roading. The wheels arent that bad, especially for the price. I had a set of those for beaters on another car.

    IMO i'd roll stock before rolling that high... no offense, but when it comes to rims, i wouldn't rock them until i can have a desireable ride height. even if they were expensive ass VIP rims. otherwise you just look like someone who doesnt know what he's doing and picked up the first set of rims on the shelf. other than that, i always liked white on gold... i think it'll look pretty nice when its dumped. have someone chop the photo for you to get a better idea of how you'd like it to be finished. but until then, good luck with everything else.

    I've been there.

    Great offset. Cheap wheels.

    You should sell the sportmax's and get some real VIP wheels.

    Long time no post but thought I would help in your vision.

    if you make it like this I am sure you will draw attention and if you are able to get some new kicks that are more of a a VIP flavor it would be cherries on top.

    Err... U misalign the wheel when u slam it... the toe is way out at the rear. Surely it's gonna be a tire killer ;)

    I am on the fence, I hate those wheels for VIP for 2 reasons, They are cheap wheels designed for the quick buck.
    And I despise that double lip shit.

    If you can sell them off for the same price I would do that. Just my .02

    But to keep this post from being completely negative, the fitment looks good so when you lower it should keep an aggressive stance.

    Yeah you should've waited imo :shrug: most here sort out the suspension and save for nicer better fitting could have rolled slammed on stockies and been more respected for your choice...the car is clean though and has lots of potential cant wait to see it done right...sorry if I seem harsh again its just my opinion

    I like the way zion made your car look but instead of the regular black tint I would go with a 20-35% green tint I think it would set your car off imo......:dance:
