Guys I have a silver optima. I’m having a hard time trying to pick out rims. Looking for 17 inches but the color is what I’m having an issue with. Do I go chrome,silver or black. Any other optima silver owners with pics?

I also have a silver. I am going to get silver mags. I don’t think black looks good on the silver optimas, but just my opinion of course. If you want more pics go to K5 Optima Nation group on Facebook

Don't have any handy and I've got snow tires on the originals right now, but here's the Tire Rack image of the wheels I purchased. Really happy with them; their lighter than the originals and don't appear to bend or break as easily. I've already had to purchase 2 new original wheels because of our lovely New England roads

Nice. What size did you go with? Did you notice any comfort loss?
Thanks. I went with 18 x 8.5. The wheels were not offered in 19 and I didn't want to go up to 20. I also lowered on Eibach springs the same time so I can't say what caused the difference in ride quality. I definitely noticed a stiffer ride. I later add TruHart struts and the ride quality was greatly improved. My wife and kids couldn't notice a chance at any time.
