Got new rims!

Well, as some of you know, I had a badly bent rim. So I sold those and got new ones. They're 17" MB Wheels "Drifter". Wrapped in 225/45/17R Kumho Ecstas. Tell me what you think, and be honest.

Thanks for being honest! I personally kinda liked the other ones a little better too, but these are growing on me and I keep getting from people that they like these better.
