thanks they look pretty good
Thanks, I personally think the smaller rims look better on the cube. Plus when I got the cube it only had 140 miles on it, so i decided to keep the tires on because they are brand new.

yeah me too im going with 15s also i want to also keep my stock tires thats why i asked you how wide it is because im getting 15x7 i want really stretch tires but they dont make something like 165/60/15 or even 175/60/15 i cant find them anywhere. i still want to keep it 60 so i will have the same overall wheel size.

I think i am going with the black. They look real good.
sounds good...i am thinkin of doing the same though I am also contemplating colormatching the factory grille (pearl white) or also doing the factory grille in black.

But I don't want to do it all and waste all kinds of money on nothin

FYI -- keeping to a 60% profile doesn't maintain the same combined rim/tire wheel height, it maintains the same ratio of sidewall height to tread width. As you increase the width of the tire, you need to decrease the percentage in order to maintain OE wheel height.

Use this tire size calculator to calculate the correct profile % for your desired tire width. It'll also tell you what the resulting speedometer error will be -- preferably not more than a couple % if you choose the right profile.

Example -- if stock is 195/60-15, then for a 175, you'd need 175/65-15, resulting in a 1.1% speedo error. For 165, you'd need 165/70-15, resulting in a .5% error.

Is that silver key (Last pic) for cube? I don't think my dealer ever offered me valet key for my Cube.

Where'd you get your wheels and how much did it run you?

No, that key is my wifes car. I got the wheels at a local place called cruisin gold. They have a website cruisin-gold.com

They were about $75 bucks per wheel. So about $300
