here's some "wilder" looking rims I found on tirerack.com. i'm tempted to buy em, but I'm curious to see what others think of them. I'm not a fan of black rims(IMHO you lose the design lines with black as opposed to silver/gunmetal/chrome rims), so I'm tryin to find something that's eye-catching(for the right reason). let's see some comments

The link works everywhere but here. I pasted it here after I tested it, but after I saved & clicked the link, it takes you to autoguide. Not sure what that's about.

So....more than one way to skin a cat. ATTACHED. lol

Not my style, but it has to make YOU happy. I make wheel purchases depending on the reaction I have when I first lay eyes on them. If you said to yourself "OMG...there's what I'm looking for" the first time you saw them, then get out your credit card.

Yes..they're definitely 'wild'. Are you sure they fit? Offset, bolt pattern, center bore?

sorry guys, bad link indeed. thx for fixing it up

according to tirerack.com, i entered 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX and that was one of the possible rims for the car, so i guess it fits......
it's 18 X 7.5, 5 bolt, +45mm offset 215/40/18

They aren't really my taste, but I do think they would look pretty slick on your car. It looks to me like the minor colour differences in the design of the wheel will reflect the rally stripe on your car. I think they will look Awesome! If you like 'em, which I assume you do because you posted about them, GO FOR IT! The whole point of "customizing" your car is that it is made to look the way you want it too! :)

i liked them both. the first ones would have been "wild" the second ones are nice in a conformist kind of way.

my rims and tires arrive monday! i hope to put em on soon. i'm REALLY impatient and I wanna put em on sooner than later..........what's a couple weeks of possible snow gonna do really? although, the tires are performance summer tires, so they'd be virtually useless. but i STILL wanna put em on! (with my red MGP caliper covers too)

Enkei's always nail it. That is going to look smooth. While you are changing them out make sure to get some caliper covers or paint those babys up. That will really make your ride pop it.
