thanks...

I'm new to this fusion.  I literally just picked it up.  I'm wondering if 18" chrome wheels, like a beefy five spoke, or 20" black wheels with a polished lip would look better.  I have had performance vehicles forever now, and I want a cruiser this time.  I just traded in my 04 STi for this car.  Better mileage, more luxury, better deal.

Do 20's make the car ride horrible, or is there still enough room left for a decent tire?  Would 18's be better?

What do you guys think of these wheels...

THERE ARE A FEW GUYS ON HERE THAT HAVE 20"S SO THEY'LL HAVE TO ANSWER THAT. BUT YOU'LL PROBABLY NEED TO WATCH THE WEIGHT ON THOSE BEEFY RIMS BECAUSE THAT WILL EAT UP GAS MILEAGE BUT IF YOU WANT LOOKS THEN OK. WELCOME TO THE SIGHT AND HOPE YOU LOVE THE FUSION AS MUCH AS WE DO.

Thanks for the input, from the sounds of it an 18 might be the way to go. I just wonder which of those two will look better. It might be time for me to pull out photoshop!

Thanks

Personally, I've liked the chrome more than black on our cars. Black wheels (in my opinion) are fine on smaller cars, but I just don't like them on midsize-fullsize sedans. just my 2 cents.

I checked the chrome out... there's a guy on here with a black SEL with "panther" wheels I think?

I like the way it looks, I'm sold.

Thanks for the help. This board is very friendly!

granted your car is much cleaner (and nicer) than these three, but I really I wasn't imagining it... :p



... all joking aside I think your ride is unique and will make people turn their heads and ask you about your car. Which is a good thing for us all.
and besides as long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters!
