Some things I notice:
1. The angle of the wheels & the angle of the Vette seem to be off. There's something going on where the wheels look messy, I want to say maybe I'm seeing more inside of the wheel than I should? Often on here wheels aren't presented at the same angle as the car, but by eliminating the inside of the wheel, sometimes you can fudge it a little more.

2. The caliper on the back is on the wrong side I can tell you just moved the front one to the back.

3. The wheels are too bright for the picture. Sometimes it's helpful to keep in mind that you need to match the picture that you're putting the wheels into, not necessarily keep them true to the original picture. Remember that silver rims may look more gunmetal in a picture that's kind of dark. My personal preference is to usually use the burn tool on highlights to tone down the brightness.

Things will come with practice

Are you sure you're not changing the resolution somewhow? I use photobucket too, that shouldn't have anything to do with it, mine don't get small.

Check the resolution when you open the images to work on them, all of them. Then check the resolution after you save something. I personally do "save for web" when I'm saving for...well...the web hah! I'm thinking you're maybe mixing resolution images & downsize somehow hmm... if I was there, I could help you out! Hard to do over the interwebz without really seeing what's going on. FYI the largest resolution the computer screen will show is 72, so anything over that will make it appear larger on screen. However, you can't really just make the resolution higher through Photoshop without losing quality - you can make pixels larger, but not make more of them - if that makes sense. That being said, if you start with a resolution of like 300, it will be larger on screen than a picture of a resolution of 72 even though it may have the same dimensions. A lot of our clients have a problem understanding this when they send in photos for us to use, they'll say it's large on screen & not understand the difference between screen size/resolution & print size/resolution - it's not always the easiest thing to get a grasp of.

Lol also when your tinting windows make sure you make it slightly opaque not just straight black.

when i did the tint on that i just outlined it and messed with the light and darkness a few times. might have done it one too many times and i might have to do with how small the pic is
