Default Pics with new rims

Here's some shatty camera phone pics of my sport with black rims. Let me know what you guys think. Also, if you notice on the exhaust tips, those are the ones I had installed. I bought the tips at AutoZone and had a local place cut the old ones off the muffler and weld these on. Instead of buying a $700 borla system, this cost $150 total installed.

I'd like to tint them, however here in iowa it's illegal to tint anything driver and forward. So it might look odd with the back and rear windows blacked out and a minimal tint on the driver and passenger.

eh just tint all the side windows the same. but do a medium to light tint so cops can still see you inside. Then they don't care. They won't pull you over for just tints. Unless u were speeding or something. Tints is just a fix-it warning the first time anyways.

Don't need to "black out" the windowws with the tint, just go darker. 35% all around. Would look better, in my opinion. Legal-schmeagle! Speeding is illegal too! You've probably never done that...just tell them it came equipped that way.

Thanks, that's appreciated. I need to wash it great the weekend and wax it. I'll get some better pics on a cloudy day. Black looks so much better in pictures when it's cloudy.

That's a good idea, I suppose as long as the back and all 4s are consistent then it'll look sweet.

Not so in Iowa, speaking from experience. State Trooper on I-80 by Atlantic exit, ticketed me a few years back just for tint. He was cruzin' below the speed limit and I passed him while doing the limit. Must have been a slow day...
