I decided against lowering and stuck with stock size, but wanted a newer look and needed some good tires. I hit the right discounts and rebates last month through discount tires and ordered up some 16x7 MB Alpina wheels and General Altimax RT 225-60-16s. With all the discounts I think I got a great deal to upgrade my rollers and look. I drive 700+ miles a week so i figured the Impala deserved a little pampering. Also got a 4 wheel alignment to ensure these last a long time.
Car rides and drives terrific. Everything fit just right.
I probably would have stuck with the old wheels unless I could have gone with a bigger wheel. The new ones look decent, but they are far too aggressive looking for a 16 inch wheel. But hey, if you like them, my opinion isn't worth s**t.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
Hated the stock ones. They look like something off an 80s Pontiac. Thought about plastidip but with how cheap I got the wheels, I had to do it. Less than 600 in the new wheels and tires...mounted balanced n delivered.
