Yea I would have liked at least a 205 on the rear but, I got a great price on those thru a buddy of mine at Discount Tire so I couldn't pass it up.

Besides the hood and front bumper looking like pure horse **** (just had a fender bender couple weeks ago) I was thinking maybe shoot them wheels a bronze or gold and it would look great probably?

Id think black or something dark would go better with your maroon than gold or bronze.
Just me though
