Well, here's another little update. I slapped on the GT2s in place of my CHs. I was looking for something lighter and more original. Although I loved the CHs, I think these fit my car pretty well, giving it a nice track look. My next mod on the list is a nice BBK to put behind these bad boys.

As much as I love the CH's (probably gonna grab a set myself next year:cool: ) I think these rims look awsome on your car

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the posts :), to address a few things...

2slow2race... This CS front deletes the fogs

cisco911... the wheels are 19x8.5 all around weighing in at only 21 lbs which is pretty damn good for 19s

WhadUpp... I used my rebel xt for the shoot, and actually snapped these pics coming back from the store after picking up a new lense. Bought the canon 75-300mm 5-5.6 III zoom lense, and am pretty happy with the pics it produced. I just needed a decent zoom lense for my trip to Portugal next month. Lol, I literally took the lense out of the bag before the shoot.

Thanks again everyone for the comments on the car as well as pics *wiggle*

Thanks, I just started to get into photography, I've gots lots to learn

Justin e36... the CHs looked great w/o a doubt, but I needed something abit more original since they're becomming a bit too common for my taste, as well as something lighter. I want my car to be about the "show" as well as the "go". I couldn't go a size lower since 18s would look out of place on my car with its kit, so i had to shop around for a bit and find a good set of light 19s. Granted the CHs are already pretty light, the GT2s are only 21 lbs and semi-forged as opposed to the CHs weighing in at 24 lbs and being casted.

LOL @ "track look" with stock dampers on slammed springs.

Car looks amazing though, don't get me wrong.

I hear ya... I'm kinda sick of CH's already to be honest. They are getting very common, it's true. The car still looks amazing... personally I think putting those M3 mirrors is what really finished the look off...
