I'll look for some wheels, I have my sources.

You like deep dish, anything else? Number of spokes, color, etc...

Here's a few I found...

i like this style a lot if i dont go deep dish it'll be something similar to that..

i like the black finish with the chrome lip, number of spokes doesnt really matter to me im not real picky as long as they looked good

Enkei has some good wheels, but for a true legit weave style wheel, BBS. Pricey, but one of the best and beloved wheels out there. It'll get your G a whole different level of attention.

Just keep your eye out on Craigslist and the like, deals are always popping up. But the 5x110 bolt pattern the G6 has limits your selections a lot, at least from what I'm finding.

They make spacer adapters (with new studs) so you could have a 5x114.3 pattern, which would open the door to 1000000x more wheels to choose from.

Not that bad for adapters, and if you really want a nice set of wheels...it's worth the extra cash.

Tinted tails cool. I hate those headlights.

EDIT: One thing I've learned in my years of doing (amateur) auto photography, is people don't like to turn their heads to look at pictures of cars. There is no need to take pictures at such crazy angles. Another thing, it's best to have the wheels straight if you are taking a shot from the front. Otherwise, it just looks weird.

:wub: with Mark, the headlights aren't too too bad but definitely not my style.

On the pictures unless it's a time to be creative, I wouldn't make it harder the person to see your car lol. Like here it's ok because you have a couple other pics and you were just being creative but I wouldn't suggest only putting those side angled pics.

I've just never been a fan of them, for any car... I usually like the stock ones over the aftermarket, 9 times out of 10.

Yeah just something about the G6 too doesn't go well with aftermarket headlights and some tails

Do it! G6's are really good DD's, I know I'm a little biased but just going to say that I am going to keep mine when I get my Camaro because it is a perfect DD car.
