I buy for performance, status all the way! Besides, even a stratus can look cool with a good paint job. Then I get dish rims, they look and perform well!

Me too, that is just one I got painted to make my car look nice. I use Jaco Premounted Dish Foams and I'm getting a stratus soon enough because, yes, it performs better. Just I know quite a lot of guys, who are big on the eye candy and everyone uses hop ups, so I though this an appropriate place for people to put this.

Usualy I go for performace but I decided to splurge and go with the clk dtm body for my tc3. I think it looks realy cool. I did not have a choice of rims and tires though. I got stuck with the axis and v-rage tires. When these wear out im getting velocity rims and lp slick 2 tires.

Well some people say the CLK DTM is a good handling body, you might be surprised. I know the skyline isnt bad either, theyre both similar in handling characteristics. I am pretty stuck as far as rims unless I buy foam donuts but I want the best grip. Black dish wheels look cool anyway. Those rims in the pic arent mine. The body is.
