standard tires and rims

Buick made it simple by offering one size. 18x7. There are two options for chrome finish or painted.

Tires are 215/55/18 Continentals that are designed to be fuel efficient and quiet.

i would preffer to chrome painted because then i will be tension free that if rain comes then then it will not get hurt or not get crossion

I also prefer chrome, but in the winter months I would either get a whole new set of wheels for winter tires or plastidip the oem chrome wheels to protect them and go through winter like that

That would be sweet, you'll want to start with finding out the bolt pattern and center bore size, and matching that up with the specs on the Encore. Next would be seeing if these wheels would be too big.

That is a nice set of wheels on the buick regal. I think it would actually pair up great with the encore. Not sure if I would put money in to though oem rims could be a lot.

OEM wheels are usually made by some reputable wheel maker, I have no problem spending if the pieces are quality.

exactly, they are as good if not better than authentic aftermarket wheels, so why not. in a lot of cases OEM wheels are cheaper than aftermarket. best way to get the look and quality you want
