What does everyone think?

I recently had a fierce snow storm in my state, and I was sliding all over the place with the stock pirelli's that come with the balt. So I decided to get a whole new set of wheels, complete with rims. Just wondering, what does everyone think a set of 18" Konig Unknowns would look like on an Ultra Silver Metallic Cobalt SS/SC?

I really like the unknowns. I have seen them on a couple silver cars and they look great.

Lol, yea, that's the proper name. "Unknown" is the type of Konig wheel, Konig has a bunch of wierd out of the ordinary names for their rims.

How the hell does it have anything to do with me sliding? Well, lol, if I'm getting new tires, with the cold around here, the people changing tires on and off all season is going to a) ruin my current rims b) ruin my tires. So why not just keep the tires I currently am using, on the stock rims, and get new tires, with new rims? That way we don't have to change crap in and out.
