Which rims do you like?

I'm generally not a fan of these threads but I want some opinions on which rims you like for my car. I'm not gauranteeing I will go with the majority because I have my favorite but I have it narrowed down to these two.

Here's my car.


Here's the first set. They are Enkeis.


The second set. Motegis

Buy 2 of each and mount the sets on opposite sides of the car. That way when you get tired of looking at one set of rims you can park the car so you see the other side until you get tired of looking at that side then you can park the car so you see the other side until you get tired of looking at that side then you can park the car so you see the other side until you get tired of looking at that side then you can.......

I guess I'm the lone voter...lol. I like the look of the motegis a lot better. I've always been a sucker for the beadlock imitations. How much do they cost?

i like the motegis alot... almost got a set too... but i think they would look better in black on your car.... both sets look like a gun metal maybe...

if your going the color shown go with the first set if your going gloss black go with the second set..

they are not a beadlock imitation they are a 3 peice rim or imitation of it.

2006 red SS SC G85

60# injectors, colder plugs, new fuel wiring harness, zzp belt tentioner, zzp 2.6" pulley, GM Stage 2 belt, HPT Tuned, Ported SC, Ported intake mani, dual bypass valve, meth injection, Hurst!, Eibach sportlines, DC Strut bar.... and more!
