Default Glad to hear your thoughts, help me choose!

Sadly a while back a local wheel and tire shop gouged my favorite Sportmax 925 wheels on my white coupe. Finally, after over a year of being ignored and them losing my number over and over again, and me being persistant, I realized I had to make a federal case (which is typically not like me) out thier negligence and have their corporate office take matters in thier own hands. Without hesitation and while not losing my number and information 5 times they have decided to replace my wheels because the
925's are of course out of stock.

So far here are some that I am considering. What I am after is a very bright silver wheel, 17" only, and five spoke.

What do you guys think of these. I am willing to listen to thoughts and ideas.
No flaming any opinions allowed in this thread or any thread for that matter.


Kyowa kr-210


Vioxx MG3


Enkie RP05

I'm admittedly know very little about wheels but Enkie RP05 get my vote.

A. - I think it's a fairly solid brand at that price point.

B. - They look killer!

C. - They will look even MOAR killer on your Coupe (either of them should you choose to swap them around just for kicks).

I vote C. B is my least favorite. I really liked the clean design of the old wheels, sorry to hear they got messed up.

But honestly, non of these rims would look too great in 17's the best in 17's would be the Kyowa kr-210

I must urge you to go 18's!!!

and Number 3 will rule supreme.
