Looking for some rims for my wagon, these are the short list.

Guy in the shop recommends them in 'shadow chrome' as apposed to polished as the car is silver, what do you guys think?

.................ROH VAPOR......................................ROH FURY...................

If anyone could photo shop them onto this image below please. I tried but couldn't get the back wheel right :?

Yes they are Vapor & Fury.

My first choice was the Vapors, then I saw the Furys in the shop.

What do you think of Shadow Chrome or Polished on a Silver Car?

The vapour looks like the dress rims on the wagon, the wagon looks down in the back?

Personally I wouldn't get either, they're both pretty average. Get some dish bro! :P
What size are you getting? Don't get 17s in either of those rims, they look minuscule compared to the car.

If I had to choose I'd say vapour in 18.

Unfortunately the budget doesn't extend to 18s
The price jumps signifcantly for 1 more inch.
Vapors 17 $247ea or $322 in 18s
Thats $300 more for the set.
