I think I'm pretty much decided on getting black wheels and that I like the Konig Feathers. They come in either a gloss black or a matte black color though. Which do you guys think would look best on a PMM colored sedan? I can't decide if I want to go 16 or 17 inch either. The 17's look good but I could get a little more rubber with the 16's which would be good here in Oklahoma where I live cause our roads suck. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

First of, go 17s. You'll regret it if you dont. Secondly, I think its all personal preference, and depends on what other mods you have going for ya. If you have a gloss black roof, get gloss black rims. If you plasti dipped your emblems, get flat black rims. Either will look good, but it will really depend on your current setup as to which will look better

I'd go with 17s despite the road conditions. Gloss or matte.. I have a hard time choosing too. Gloss will pop out more, but in my opinion matte is just sexy.

matte on 16's
This is what I'm leaning toward.

Anyone have suggestions for a tire size that has decent tread so I won't need to buy tires after 6 months? They also need to be able to be easily rotated and non-directional is I think the proper terminology for that. I live in Oklahoma so the tires need to handle all weather situations from 110 summers to flash flooding to snow all within 3 months of each other lol.

Gloss black all the way. It will make your car look legit. 16 and 17 are only 1 inch of tires. I doubt you will feel the difference.

I think 18s and up are too big, 15s and down are too small, and 16 and 17s are juuuuuust right.

My wheels are 17" matte black. I actually prefer the lighter 16" rims but had to take what was easily available. Cheaper tires with 16". Forget handling though.

16" matte

The non directional pattern and 40000 mile tread life, even on my 40 series tires, is why I went with falken 612 tires. Only have maybe 1000 miles on them, so can't tell how long they will last, but hoping for close to 40,000, that would be nice. Bought my rim and tire package from discounttiredirect.com for a smoking deal.
