I actually dig the styling of the 09's. The only part of the car I truly hate the looks of is the grill.

The rims are okay. I definitely prefer them to hubs/steelies. But since I have the cash to get the new rims, these are gone like the wind. Most likely gonna give those to a friend of mine.

Thanks for the good words :)

Now I'm just figuring out what to do to her next.

Thinking my next step is actually buyin' a camera, so I can do away with crappy cell phone pics. (Hey I bought an iPod just for the car so eh .. why not?)

I now see that in you r original post, How did I miss that.

You got any rubbing issues with that +38 offset?

When hitting bumps etc?

I like those wheels.

They have some called Hyper Black but it looks gray like yours on line.

Are yours the Hyper Blacks?

Where did you get them and how much?
I made the change in the original post. Figured if you had the question, someone else might have it in the future.

I've only had 1 instance of rubbing, but it was a steep/awkward driveway I was coming out of. So far no problems with the offset. Standard speedbumps aren't an issue as long as I treat 'em as speedbumps. I went with the 225/45's, but a 215/45 might be a better fitment in regards to the rubbing issues.

Those are the hyperblack rims. They're more a medium gray, but kinda change darkness based on the angle you look at 'em from. The cost was 157 each from a local Discount Tire. Tirerack also has them.

So far I've been very happy with this setup. I'll post more about it as I drive a bit more, to find out where the rub came from. Wasn't able to see anything on the tires themselves. I don't often have passengers in the car.
