Hey guys/gals

Hows everyone doing?
Ive got an 05 BB 300C, and I have been holding off for some time now in getting my rims.

my mods

5% tint around
Chrome pillars
E&G Heavy Mesh grille
Magnaflow Cat back exhaust running on single center Magnaflow muffler
Cross Drilled/Slotted Rotors - stock calipers :(

10000k HID fogs (the violet looks great with black)
Tinted tails
Chrome signal bulbs
LED license plate bulbs

Now I think I have decided on the 22 vipers from factory reproductions off ebay. I have been searching EVERYWHERE to find 22 inch Chrome Vipers on a Black 300c, no luck. I was hoping maybe someone has a picture or atleast has seen it, and what they think.
I understand some people think the vipers arent the best choice, i respect that. But please understand I love them. I have been looking for rims that will show off my brakes and will not have a lip because I feel that a lip sometimes makes 22s look like 20s, IMO.

What do you guys think of this set up...

22x9 - 265/35/22 Nitto NT420s
22x10 - 295/30/33 Nitto NT420s

Thanks

What was your decision??

I think it is a sick idea! Called factoryreporduction.com to ask about the 22" Viper wheel machined with black inserts for my car.

Who are you looking at buying the wheels through??

Well after finally seeing the picture of the black on chrome 22s, it made my decision to go this route instead of any other wheel/tire combination.

I have always been a fan of any rim style that ends directly at the tire, in stead of a lip. Although lips do look good, I like my wheels to look as big as they are. Absolutely stunning IMO.
I am also planning to pick mine up through factory reproductions and have them shipped to me in canada. The price is unbeatable. I had a few places quote me on 22 dub dirty dogs at first with tires for 6000 CAN, haha. I think I am looking at 2400 shipped plus whatever c.o.d. customs charge I get. I live in ontario and have yet to see these wheels in person on any car besides vipers, lol. Needless to say I am excited. I was also considering the machined face with black inserts however there is quite a bit of chrome on my car, I think the chrome will work better.

Thats great to hear you are looking at the same set. I am a little worried about the 295/30/22 tires in the back however. I would like to see if anyone else has this kind of set up, lowered.

As for lowering, thats a completely different story but to sum it up I plan on a

Pedders Street II set up
Hotchkis sway bar set up

After that, I think I will call it a day....but then again I want a MY GIG

Keep us updated on the Viper wheels. As an FYI when I called the shop yesterday the store manager told me that they were thinking about adjusting the prices maybe $10 to $20 per wheel. He said that some of the dealers were upset becuase of the low price that is available on e-bay.

He told me that they are at least 30 days away from casting the Machined w/black inserts. I am going to wait for those and hope the price doesn't go up! If I were you I would get the chromies ASAP!

Can't wait to see the pictures!! Good Luck!!!
