Heya stylin_vr2 , rims come down to personal taste. But in answer to ur questions, firstly, chrome rims have been overdone and IMO only look good on a dark blue or black commy and, I would definately go the 18's. When I was lookin to upgrade my rims, which i still am, I was giving strong thought to either the Advanti Moda, or Koya's Inox-1 ... just do a google image search to sus these out. Hope this helps. :)

swing into a couple of local tire shops and ask them for some rim brochures [ spelling? ]

I would go for something you can afford, remember 18' tyres are dearer then 17's. And chrome, no thank you, I prefer shadow chrome, they look good at night. Really its your choice at the end of the day.;)

hey mate...i think you should wait up and save and buy they 18's...honestly 17's on a commy looks way to small. as everyone else has said...what rim you actually want comes down to personal taste...dont forget tyres. where in melbourne are you located...there are a crap load of places to go to. just to name one place which has many locations...try "The Tyre Factory". Also keep in mind when asking for prices...that you are a girl and places do tend to somehow include a higher price for females so you might want to take a guy with you that has a bit of an idea whether it may be your dad, brother, uncle, boyfriend whoever...just a guy...

Cheers, Joe
