Default Wheel ideas for 2011 Buick Regal

Hey everyone,

I'm interested in getting rims for my 2011 Buick Regal. The car comes stock with 18" Aluminum Alloy wheels, which are nice, but I can't stand the finish (muted silver). I really want the chrome finish to give my car the luxury look.

I'm extremely n00b at buying rims, but if anyone out there can give me your insight/ideas, I would really appreciate it.

i've attached a pic of the Regal. Mine is Black, but this still gives you a general idea.

Sweet car

What kind of look are you going for?

I'm going for a classy look. I originally thought about murdered out rims, but this car just doesn't have the body for it. It has a lot of chrome trim around the doors and the grill and stuff, so I would like to keep up the trend.

Any suggestions?

I think some chrome snowflake rims would look good and classy - long as you don't go overboard gaudy.
