Brand new to forum..

Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I aquired a 1998 MGM. It's blue, (I think technically called "AZURE"? but not sure). It has the digital dash with all the things I could think of except for tachometer?? So, I may be needing advice on that..
It also has the aluminum laced wheels, with stock sized tires. Being a bit "old school" I was wanting to make it a bit more aggressive looking. So, I thought of the black steel wheel look only.. But, they seem hard to find, and or nobody wants to trade.. Before I run off and buy after market steelies that run anywhere from 4~6 hundred for the "wagon wheel / Nascar" look,.. I thought "change tire sizes". Not that the Aluminum wheels look bad mind you, but just a bit "grandpa-ish" with the same sized tires all the way around. I think it will give a more muscular stance by changing the tire size. Here are the sizes I was thinking..:
205/60-16 in front, and 255/50-16 in back. I'm thinking the air ride would auto-adjust the height giving it a more "tucked tire" look in the rear to compensate the smaller tire up front, I could be wrong with my guesswork tho?? Anyone try this before? Thanks for the help!

Welcome to the forums. You can search for used factory steel wheels here. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market As for the air suspension,I've never changed any from factory settings. Some one else may help with that.
