I've got some $$$ to spend so I'm thinking new HU and some winter rims and tires. Probably going to go 16"X7", as there are some cheap sets on ebay...tires I haven't decided yet, but I'm thing about either or these rims:

I know the red ones are loud and strange for a silver car, but I figured screw it, it's the winter, why not. I may do bronze too if I can find something. Anyways, anyone got tire tips? TIA.

I like the black due to my love of grayscale... but with the red, i wonder if a darker red would look cool... but maybe for the winter do the beltline in a matching red. :)

haha thanks guys, the black ones are nippon i think, they're all over ebay for like $300 and change. I'm probably gonna get them, as I like my black with polished lip rims but always have wanted flat black ones too.

Sweet dude... I'm sure you know this, but be careful with what you get on ebay because when I was looking at some of those Nippon's, they were like 299.00 for the set, but then they were charging like 150.00 for shipping.
