Welcome to the forum!

I too am not a fan. I think you'll find many here do not care for chrome rims on our car. Did you buy the car with them already on?

You should add your location to your profile. I assume you're in Europe? Having this information is helpful with future questions you my have as features and trim vary by market.

I think you should get rid of them and find some RX8 wheels.

I'd pass on the RX-8 rims if I were you... while they look good, they are heavy and increasingly common. The rims you have on your car really don't look that bad... I've seen worse. However if it is within your budget, can grab yourself a set of lightweight 17" or 18" rims... go for it!

I agree with you but what other wheels can you get that has the stock look but sporty at the same time without lowering your car. If I was to get other brand wheels, to me it would not look right your car is not lowered. Just my opinion.

You can lower on 18x8 (many of us here are). What you need to know is the offset of the rims. It looks like it may be low so you may run into rubbing issues.

IMO, I would replace the rims and drop together.

Well, I'm sure you can sell them and get some of your money back.

When you find a set of rims you like, post them up along with a good profile picture of your car. We have some photoshop pros on this forum.
