Do you think these wheels will look good on my Dark Blue Pearl Fusion?

They are 19" x 7.5", with a +48 offset. I need to do some research on the stock offset, but the guy is going to let me bolt them on first, to see how they fit.

Please, give me your opinion.





I can get them with good tires for $600.

What do you think?

While I'm not a fan of increasing unsprung weight for cosmetic reasons they do look very trick.

They've got a 4 lug bolt pattern?
[/quote]Yes, they are universal, fit both the 5x114.3 and 4x100.

[/quote]They aren't that heavy, I don't think. 17" are 20 pounds. Our stockers have to be at LEAST that. Another two inches can't increase it that much. Besides -- it's not that important to me.

Here's my 2cents and I don't mean to offend anyone- I wish I had the $$ to put rims on my car. 2 reasons I'm not crazy about the rims. First, it shows too much, meaning you can see through it too easily. Not a big deal if you have 14" slotted rotors with 6 piston cailpers to show off. The Fusion brake assembly isn't exactly a work of art. Second, I prefer a rim that looks like it was made for your car- specifically in regards to the number of lug holes. I would prefer the wheel have only 5 lug holes, or at least a cover with a nice center cap. Those "universal fit" rims look kinda cheap and rice to me. But as I've said before on other threads, as long as you like them- knock yourself out. :)

understand what you are saying and i can agree with you. that is why i am going to be putting sloted rotors on and paint the calipers red just to make everything look better. that along with dropping it 1.6 inches all the way around should give it a good look. But i do like the wheels i thing they go well with the over all look of my car. The black inside with the pollished face works with the black anc chrome of the car.

The fit will be fine, as with a 7.5" wide wheel with +48mm offset the wheel will extend 10mm deeper into the wheelwell, and stick out only 2mm more than stock.

As for the looks, the black accents on the wheels might look good on a black car, but I don't think I'd like it on a blue one like yours. Because of that, I'd probably shop around or hold off for something that goes with your car better, even though it's a killer deal.

Hold off. Like people have said, it shows too much through the wheels. I also don't think it goes with the car.The car is slabby and those spokes are skinny. Find something with more spokes or preferably, a thicker 5/6 spoke.
