Got Side Swiped!!! Need new Wheels!

Some 17 year old girl that didn't have a clue hit me last week. Now I need new wheels/tires...among many others things.

From the looks of it (and maybe the 5 degrees of positive camber on the Front driver's side wheel was an obvious indication of this..haha) it looks like the control arm is broken along with the bent spring.

Sucks because I just replaced my Eibach Pro Kit with an H&R 1.3" kit and a full camber kit + new Proxies last summer....so pissed!!!!

Oh well, **** happens I guess...but now that I need a new set of wheels I'm thinking of going with something like this...
http://www.wheelmax.com/_images/products/px5hs.gif

Not necessarily that brand, but this is the look i'm going for. Does anyone have something like this on your car?? Thanks..I'm open for opinions

hey man if your drop is messed up, i have eibach ground controls with eibach springs that i can sell you cheap.

was the girl hott? could have made it worth while MUHAHAAHA

rim doesn't look that bad. kind of reminds me of stock alloys except a little bit thinner. you should photo chop it to your car and see how well it will flow.

I'm gonna get the insurance co to pay for a whole new set..wheels/tires/suspension. both front wheels and tires are jacked cause when she hit me it pushed me into a curb on the passenger side so that wheel and tires have chunks missing too.

im thinkin that a nice set of jdm mugen replica wheels would look good on there, or possibly even some motegi m7's since they are goin so cheap now considering everyone had them in 1998 and is sellin them these days
