    I think you should paint your your call all the same color. Paint the hood, trunk, mirros, and lip all the same color as your car, and it'll look 10,000x better. Oh, and black rims on a silver car = eewwwww.

    I've seen gloss black wheels on a silver car before, I liked it, but you GOTTA keep tire shine on the tire, or else it looks sheisty. However, I've also seen 18's on integras, and I've never been a fan.

    Go down to 17s with a slightly bigger tire, like 215/40/17s if you must have the larger wheels. Otherwise I say grab some black slips.

    I had 17's with 215/40's on my car for about two years, and after going back down to 15's I can say there's really no comparison, it both handles and rides better on the 15's. Unless you just REALLY like the look for oversize wheels, I would definitely recommend 15's, potholes are much less of a threat :)

    FLAT black on a silver cars looks dumb, but gloss black with a polished lip looks sick, atleast to me. 16's are the best compromise between looks and functionality, light weight, not dwarf sized 15's, wide variety of tires and wheels and the cost of the wheels and tires wont kill you. well...unless youre used to paying for 15inch tires...like me

    Tire shine on a performace tire? Yea for intentionally putting oil on your grippy tires.

    i'd say go with a gloss black with a polished lip, and yeah 16's would look much better on your teg,
