Default Help choosing wheel Red MS6

I have a bone stock Red MS6. I am having a terrible time finding a wheel that would look good with stock height. All 4 of my wheels are bent so I pretty much have to buy new wheels and tires. I'm finding a lot of options in the ~150-190 range. I don't think it's a good idea to cheap out much below that with wheels.

Here's some I thought might look good:
Classier look: B1 ? Lupo | Advanti Racing Wheels USA
Gunmetal look: - YS5 | Enkei Wheels or M52 | Enkei Wheels

No idea what else might look good with a stock ride height. I can say my windows have a medium black tint, but everything else is stock.

Any help much appreciated! Would love to see some Red MS6 pics with stock ride height as well. But I know most people lower their MS6 so it doesn't look like a freaking mud cart.

it's begging for white painted wheels like an Alfa 155 DTM from a few years ago.

If you like those motegi's, look into the drag dr49, I have them on my gen1 ms3 at stock ride height and love the look. I think there's a guy with a white gen2 who has them as well. It's more about the size of the tire you use that depends how a wheel will look at stock height.

Mine are 18x8 +35 btw. They also come in a +45 if you want to stay closer to stock dims.

Thanks for the suggestions to the few of you who chipped in. I am goign to try to keep my stock rims but if they end up being bent I'll be going aftermarket soon. I just bought a set of Toyo Proxes T1 sport tires. They have a 20k tread warranty which is super rare with max performance summer tires.

Anyone have any experience on the Toyo T1 Sport tires? Also, I was wondering if It's fine to get my new tires on my stock rims and then a month or two later put them on new rims. Will the tread wear pattern from my stock rims (if bent) mean I cannot use the tired on a brand new set of rims?

Thanks all.

Should be fine to switch the rims with 1-month old tires.
Advanti would be first choice, then YS5. No M52 for me.

Check the red MS6 thread for some more ideas...

Listen, if you stay at stock height you must keep a close to stock offset with the wheels well tucked into the wells. I wouldn't go shallower than a +45mm 18x8. The further you push out, the worse it looks on stock suspension.

Oh, here is what I'm down to... 045 - MSR Wheels or B1 ? Lupo | Advanti Racing Wheels USA

The Advantis are silver and have only the 5 lug slots which is nice. The MSR's are hyper black and have extra lug holes. Advantis are around $800 and the MSR's are around the same. Advantis seems easier to get though.. Which do y'all think would go better with a red MS6? I really like hyper black wheels but the silver seems to go well with the red MS6.

Msrs are safe bet. B1 Lupo are yuck imo. Look like they should be on a Chrysler 200.

How much do the Advantis weigh? If I remember from when I was looking they were all heavy as hell.

Lol.. Well I got the Advanti's. $760 installed and I believe they are a few lbs less than stock. May not look the best but they are okay for the price and all the shitty bumps and vibes are compeltely gone.

I have Enkei M52 on my MS6. Mine are black and on 18". It looks good.. but for your speed choose a dark color like black or sliver.. it will be beautiful
