I have always liked them. Some damn good rims for factory ones. :D
But I also know some people that think they are ugly.. But I still like em.

Mate. for what it is worth, they look absolutely fantastic. Go for it. If that is your car then it looks better than fantastic, it looks bloody great.

they look really good but i would go 19's with those. In your photoshopped picture, in real life they would be a 19/20" rim by looks of that pic.
