New rims... not sure I like them?

So I was just about to buy some wheelers steelies or some Pro Comp 7089's on Monday but there was a guy in town selling some 16" American Racing 172 series with some 265/70R16's Yokohama Geolanders so I bought them but not sure I like them.

^^^ agreed, bigger meats will make them look alot better but I like them. You could also paint them black

You bought a set of wheels and tires without making sure you liked them first, and you originally said you were a female stripper but now you say your name is Rick?

I think you've got bigger decisions to make than deciding on what rims you like...but...as far as the rims go, bigger tires would help but I'm not personally a fan of them as they are now.

Maybe painted black...not sure.

Just get centercaps they look great the caps just give it the final touch. Have you thought about powdercoating if you wanted to change them to black?

i guess it really depends on how much you paid. They look allright, I agree with others... beefier tires would make a big difference. I also think painted or powdercoated black would look sweet as well.

They're not bad, I'd paint them black though, but that's just me
