I decided on these.
Front:18x8 +48mm
255/40YR18

Rear: 18x9 +55mm
255/35YR18

with pilot sport SP2's

I think this should work? correct me if im wrong. I am going to be putting these on my black onyx. I am getting a BBK with turbo soon so i thought these would be good.

I like the style of the first ones best, but either of the next two would have better quality.

Of the three I would get the second... That's just me.

ask tire rack if you can get the front ones in a 45mm offset instead of the 48mm,it will look much better and perform better.

I'm assuming (hoping) you meant 225s or 235s in the front. There is no possible way a 255 would fit in the front on those specs.

BTW, I think those wheels are the sickness. Do they have them in gunmetal?

I don't think they do but then again, I haven't been looking. Sorry for the dark pic but it's about the best I have right now.

silver. it'll stand out more. gunmetal makes it the car look dull imo. unless its really shiny like volks mercury silver or something.

I like the gloss black idea. I don't think you'll need to shave with those offsets, but the plastic fender liner might need some manipulating.
