I found the rims I was looking 4!!! Surprisingly its the only ad in the entire province of Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, & New York state who's selling them, so i'm in a rush 2 figure this all out & give them an answer asap. I attached a pic of them below, as well as the tire fittings/ratios I found on discounttiredirect.com. They're Kia OEM Forte Koup rims that the caps come off of (thank g-d) & that have the same bolt pattern as my current OEM rims. I might plasti-dip the silver parts 2 paint them Orange/Red... :flame:This is just to give you guys an idea. I've had enough requests for it... Please feel free to comment if you feel that you can :smile:

On the left is what i would consider an Astronomical Stretch, unreasonable on the right... just FYI :smile:
I have see 195's stretched onto 11.0" rims for cars that are just show cars and are not driven faster than 5 miles per hour
So I have 205/55/R16 rims/tire combo on EXL coupe, but I don't have the sport-tuned suspension of the Si, & was wondering how: A) I can find out what width my current OEM rims R? I figured since they're 205 & they'd B 'perfect' on a 7.5", that they were probably 7.5"... B) What would happen if I took a less wide rim, would it decrease performance? C) Since the rims I want R 17"x7". Would I have 2 add spacers or something (i.e. suspension coils) 2 get performance as well as the 'drift' look where the tires R stretched & wider & flush with the fenders? Would the rims work with the tires I have currently, & if not, what size tire should I get in order 2 fit my wheel wells for the this situation?
Also, the rims were on the road 4 a season, so they're used. I called 1 of the Kia dealers who told me that the rims new were $681/each! The person who's selling them asked for $750 online is willing 2 go down 2 $600. I went 2 C them 2day & they seem like they're in gr8 shape, but i'm not really sure if $600 is worth it 2 buy used since U can easily find new 1s online for btwn $100-$150. I told them i'd get back 2 them by latest Monday Bcuz I wanna go check if the largest scrap yard in the area has NE 4 a lower price. I love these rims, but i'd really like to get some opinions on this... NE1?
I'm so excited I found the rims I like, I hope that I can pull off what i'm thinking of...!
