New hot rims!

Here is my 2011 Rio5 with some new rims. These are König Lightning black 8 spokes 14x6. I had a deal for them.







I also tried the panoramic camera on my smartphone:



My technique still needs to be worked, but the result is not that bad!

I like it. They are fitting to the car with the black and machined lip. Also, its nice to see someone get new rims and not go with the biggest ones possible. Some vehicles look good with big wheels, but IMO your Rio looks much better the way you did it.

I like the black rim look, have it on my sporty, but I would go bigger than that 14". Looks just way to small. Just my opinion. Not too big though, no bigger than 17". Would fill in that wheel well a bit better too.

Yeah, but in the other end, the brake discs looks way too small inside 17" rims. It looks cool for me

Too small. That doesn't mean go with 20" spinners or some other ghettofabulous wheels, but they just look tiny. Car looks clean though and the pics turned out pretty good.
