New tires and rims for my 6

I just ordered new rims and tires for my 2005 V6 Mustang and i wanted some opinions on my choices. The rims are 18"x9 chrome Bullit and the tires are Yokohama ES100 P245/45ZR18. I hope i made the right choice and your feedback will help a lot....Thanx !!!
I've also attached a pic of my existing tires and rims.

they'll look good, the tire size the right size for the rim? that''s the most concern for looks.

other than that, i'd just worry about the brand of rim, some bad brans dent abd bend and are no good. and sometiems really heavy and make the car slower.

but i've seen those bought before and yokohama is a good tire so i say you're safe

Might slow you down a bit, but ti will look good :thumbsup

Very nice. I went with the silver ones for 17s and love the way the car looks. Pics in the gallery. I went with the Dunlop SP 5000s and have been very happy with the purchase.

GEFracing.com has the best prices I've seen.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
