Optima's soon to be new rims and muffler

I purchased a set of ICW Kobe wheels, 15 inch ones btw, I am trying to keep my tire costs down, and DTM 3.5 inch muffler. The muffler came from overstock.com and the wheels are from a site called Car rims, Custom Wheels Tires, OEM wheels, Truck Rims, Chrome Rims , I also have a set of sport visors on the way too. And like always pictures and video clips will be uploaded. And yes, I am changing out the piping so its a cat back setup. It will remain at stock diameter which is 2.25 inches. The wheels cost me $354 shipped to my front door and the muffler was $75.

Here is a picture of the wheels, and a picture of the muffler.

My best friend has those exact same rims on his '94 Ford Escort. They look good on his little hatch-back. Not so sure on a 4-door sedan...

Guess we will have to see, won't we?!?

WE WILL WANT PICS!

Not bad... better than I expected. They look pretty nice... but I can't help but think that 16" would have looked better... but that's just me...

They look nice, and I may consider those for my car as well, now.

Tum, they really make the car sharp looking. They would look good on yours as well.

i think one or 2 sizes up would look better but! it is your choice and your car and i like that your doing your own thing and that your actually making progress that you say you are not just saying im getting this and that and never having anything

all you need now is a turbo kit !!

Looks good brotha. And you'll have a better time paying for 15" tires rather than anything larger. heh. NEWayz, kudos on the rims!
