Yeah I don't mind the aspire's.

I mainly went with the Cheetah's as they are more subtle.

Have you ever made a worthwhile post?

The 5 spoke designs above stands out a lot more, particularly the Chopper. I don't like cars that look like they have things obviously not meant to be there.

ye i agree with skidder

I think i may have completely changed my mind from all of those now ... After staring at my car through the window at work ... I reckon some nice simple deep dish silver or cromies would look awesome and suit the colour better the gun metal or black ... Now i just gotta find some i like lol ... So i can change my mind again

Yup - I have actually...

Anything with dish will be obvious that its not factory if thats what you're talking about.
Post pics of the car and get it photoshopped to compare.

get a classy looking rim with spokes that go to the edge of the lip (ie: no dish) as these always look 2" bigger than dished rims with centres
