I can't really tell from the pictures, they are too small. Resize them and post them again. I've never been a fan of ground effects so I'd vote to ditch it, but if you painted it all white then maybe it would improve the look. The wheels look good though.

Looks sweet! But the pics are way too small to get a good look. Bigger pics please.

Looks nice (as other have stated hard to tell with tiny pics)
Are those the really skinny tires? those last about 2000 miles and ride like a goat.

Boy am I pissed off that I was beat to the punch.

What do I think? I think the pictures are too small.

Seriously though, I think the wheels and ground effects look tasteful.

Hard to tell much by the small pics, but I'd paint it to match the car.

Man when I saw ground effects, I was thinking Underglow or street glow. Neon lights.... those are ground effects.... that my friend is what most call a body kit. Looks decent from what I can see though. Good job bro. Now all you need is to get her painted up and she'll be gravy.

Actually, lots of people call that ground effects or a lip kit.

Once again, I was beat to the punch. I need to get on the ball. PurdueGuy is right, ODG. Back in the late-mid 80's, a couple of friends had gotten mustangs (I hated that look of the 85 mustang) with ground effects. Back then, there weren't neon lights on the underside of cars. They still had ground effects. I see what your saying, though. With all the mods you can put on cars these days, some may want to differentiate between one mod and another.

I won't tell you to post bigger pics! YES I WILL!! From what I could make out the ground effects look good! Not Ricey, but enough to show your stuff. If you want a two tone effect "DO NOT!" only hilight the effects. I say leave it all white or split the car 70/30! White is a hard color to two tone. Go one color with accents! Stripes, pin stripping, hi-lighting accents. Avoid calling attention to the effects and they will stand out more! I Like the wheels! Give us info on them!

I guess it depends on where you are from. People call soda, pop in some places and I think that's weird. If you google ground effects you get both as a result. And if you type in body kits.... all you get are what you guys call as ground effects.

ok guys the wheels are EXEL ENNIO's I got them off www.wheelmax.com they are the silver finish part number (WEX23-170742AC-SL) i got 17" bc i was going to lower it but a 18" will fit. The fittings are 17x07 4x100/4x4.5 SL ST I got the wheels with 205/40/17 Federal SS595 tiresi think i paid 650.00 mounted balanced and shipped!!! Great Deal i Love them although when its time for new tires i will be putting a little bigger tire and different brand the federal's kinda pull to the right and wear in the inside faster. But i like the wheels. I have posted a new thread with bigger pics if anyones intrested in seeing better pics!!! Hope i helped let me know if anyone needs any extra info!!
