Cool Opinions on rims & grill choices

I will soon be a proud owner of my own Milano Red '12 CVT EX CR-Z & have already figured out lots of mods I'd like to do. The photo below is of the Seibon carbon fiber hood (which I plan on buying & having the same paint job on my Z). I'm also going to paint the entire roof, including the top portion of the doors, hatch and lower portion of the hatch black. SOOOO MANY MORE, but wanted some feedback on if which rims to buy to fit my scheme & also what you guys thought of this grill. Thanks for checking the thread, whether u have any input or not.

GRILL:

Stock


T-Rex Black Steel Mesh Grill (Photoshopped on)


RIMS:

Enkei Performance GW8's


OZ Super Turis GT's


I'm leaning towards these though..

Enkei LS-5 (my personal fav)

enkei ls-5 rims and tires packages. enkei ls-5 black w/ red cap wheels and tires packages at WheelsNext.com

Would anyone recommend tires for these^^^ Preferably affordable low pro's since I plan on lowering the car as well..but all in due time. Thanks in advance!

The red/black GW-8's look like POO.

Of those wheel choices, go with the OZ's.

Not a huge fan of the TRex Grille, but to each his own... Could look decent in person I suppose.

And not to discourage your ideas, the paint job is unique and everything, but personally Id prefer the oem paint. CF or CF/black vinyl hood and roof could give a similar effect and be easily reversible. Just sayin.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah, the OZ's r subtle yet very sporty looking. & I agree w/ u Rob, my oldest brother liked them bcuz he said they were unique, so I decided to see what actual Z owners thought. The paint job was my first thought bcuz I'm not familiar with wrapping much. I've never really modded cars, as this CR-Z will b my 2nd car. I'm pretty confident I'll like the paint job, but thanks for the alternative Soh.

If you thinking of painting the front,i'll go with leaving the flat part of the hood black/CF and the side/s of the hood red and follow the line of the bumper and grille,but that requires more work,and it will be more expensive... But i think it will look better.

That looks pretty sick Monkey . I like it a lot, my only thing is that I want the seibon carbon hood to cut weight off the car for hopefully better mpg. 80% of the modifications I have in mind are geared towards improving my mpg. The grill was just to see what u guys thought of it, because I honestly like the normal grill compared to the mesh. Still considering other rims, trying to find lighter than stock rims (that are affordable).

As far as grilles go,i like the
