Hi from Sunny Jamaica!!

Hey everyone, I'm Nick from the island of Jamaica. I'm new here, sold my 02 Mazda protege last month (April) and bought this 08 Vitz (Luvin it) .

Plan on getting these wheels 16" with an offset of 40 with 185 50 16 tyres. Should be nice, have a few mods to do which you will be kept updated on!!

Hello from across the waters (Antigua). Nice car you got there, I'd go 40 series on the tires, they'll look a lot better

If the roads are bad then I understand, I'm currently on 195/50/15s and I wish I got a lower profile

Picked em up today, such a good feeling unboxing new shiny wheels

Next photos will be after fitting em.

Is it for cosmetic reasons you wished you had a lower profile or you rubbing? I'm hoping the 50's wont rub...
