Default Wheels for widebody kit?

I was looking at the Top Secret Wide Body Kit, the BRS Autodesign Wide Body Kit, or Do Luck and wanted to know if my wheels would look funny becasue of how much wider the car is. I have 19" 275's in the back and 245 in the front.

If my wheels and tires would work wich would you recommend

Thanks

they'd work with the do-luck, since it's not really a widebodykit in the sense that the others are...you'd have to get new wheels or spacers for the other two kits for sure...i'd suggest the top secret kit if you have the money for it...not many people have it

With BRS and TopSecret you should go with 20's and wider, like 20x11 or more for the rear wheels and tires in the 300's.

Your current wheels will be way tucked in for any widebody.

You will need hub adapters to run you current set up and they will look way getto.

You will have to go custom to do it right.

20" look best 19" doesn't look bad.

I am currently running the Top Secret Wide Body Kit. There are three main options. You can use your existing rims with spacers. You can go with the GT-C's 19x10.5 all the way around (pm me for the correct offset), or go with a much wider wheel (like 13"). Personally I first went with the spacers but am going with the GT-C's cause the spacers are a neg at car shows. The nice thing with going with the GT-c's and not with a super wide rim, is that there is much more of a tire selection and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I also don't recomend much more then a 19" because you will get more rub.
