Welcome. A previous owner added a lip or bumper at some point as that lower nose is not stock. Oh, and the wheels were powdercoated black by someone.

Finding aftermarket rims on the cheaper side, you have to be careful. If you cheap out on rims, it could mean the difference between longevity and a rims that crack. I'd say go ESR rims, but I say just save up and get some nice rims. ESR used to make reps, but now they're making their own style of rims. Just learn what offset, wheel width, and wheel size will work for your car. Will you be doing suspension work such as minor lowering or slamming the car? Do you care about ride quality and road noise? ETC. Think about all of these factors and more before buying rims. It took me 4 sets of rims to finally get it right and to learn about offsets, width, and size. Lots of money wasted on rims and tires.

Also make sure to know what tires you plan on running too. Tires for 19in rims cost an arm and a leg basically. Just my .02 cents before you go off and buy rims and mess up like me.

what do you think you a decent pair of rims go for ive never bought rims in my life lol but yes im considering lowering it on lowering springs and plan on get 17 rims with wider tires. i dont mind noise as long its not doing no damage to the car in the long run. and jesus christ 4 different rims that must of suck i woulda been very livid haha and tanks for the info this will make buying rims a lil more easier? but how can i get wider tires

Don't know of any 17s that will clear your big brakes. I run 18x9.5 Wedsports and love them, pretty light, strong and about $350 each.
