    My 17" OEM factory sport wheels are flaking away and in need of replacing

    I have narrowed it down to the Ultra Rogue wheels but not sure if I should go with the silver machined or the black painted?

    I'm leaning toward the silver machined ones but I know the black ones are really gonna give a whole new look:confused:

    Also trying to figure out witch ones will be easier to clean and maintain

    Thanks for any help in making my mind up...

    I can't stand black wheels with a chrome (or silver) ring on the lip but that's just me!

    Ok I have made up my mind:)

    I'm going with the Ultra Rogue Machined Wheels (Silver) 18" X 8.5" +10 offset 5.15" backspacing

    I'm also going with the Pirelli Scorpion ATR Tires 265/60/R18

    The online wheel offset calculator tells me I will gain 7mm of backspace

    And I will Extend the outer Lip of my Rim 36MM more

    Going with 265/60/18 tires will keep my speedo almost perfect:D

    Let me know what you guys think...

    Thanks for all the replies...The only reason i'm going with the Pirelli Scorpion ATR's is because I do no off road driving but I did want something a little more aggressive looking then my OEM Bridgestone Dueller HT tires

    I was really just going for a better looking tire and also something that had good snow ratings because my BS Dueller HT tires are horrible in the snow

    We don't get much snow here in south jersey but this winter we did get a few good storms already
