I understand the money issue, and I realize that wheels in the stupid 5x108 bolt pattern can be hard to find. I guess what I should have said is what someone else said, try and save up for some nicer wheels. I think if you buy either of those you will not be happy in the end and doing a disservice to your car (I would not be surprised to see something like that on a sunfire/cavalier if you know what i'm saying). Putting the cheapest wheels you can find on just to say you have "aftermarket wheels" is not the ideal option.
Also, It's generally a good idea to lower your car first. I find cars that are stock height with aftermarket wheels look odd.
That's just my opinion. If you forced me to choose I would say the second ones, A) because I find the first ones don't look very good and B) because they are American racing.
Seriously, you really need to just save some more money, but I guess it's your car and your taste. Oh, the reason I don't like American Racing is because they are a really "cheap" wheel. When I had a mustang (about 15 years ago now) AR's were a "cheap" aftermarket wheel for it. Also, it's only in the last couple years they've made anything besides mustang and Camaro (and chev 1/2 ton) wheels. Not really a wheel that looks right on a Euro car, you know what i'm saying?
