Could these be my new wheels?

Can the experts of PS please chop these rims on for me please? Need to see what they'd look like on the car. Keep in mind they're 18", so no 20" rim chop's...well..on second thought, both if possible, one in reality and other the fully sick version. Thanks.

Yeah, made it a bit easier to chop.

The original image was:



I used Corel to mirror flip and adjust contrast and sharpened it up a little. I can do minor adjustments like that using Corel, but when it comes to Photoshop and PS'ing, I'm lost..

I was just experimenting, something different but not too different. Getting bored with the looks, need to change a little, but I think I'll stick with the T3's..for now.

Hey anyone wanna have a go at 20" rims?
