new wheels...opinions welcome

heres my first choice...... Exel H-50

18x7.5" Hyperblack

I know they are popular on most imports but i think they look nice....and would match my color very nice....whatdya think?

http://www.wheelmax.com/Wheels/exel/h50-hblack.htm

heres my 2nd choice would be......awesome in chrome, but wish they had them in different finishes

18x17.5"

I like the second ones better too, although the first ones aren't bad either.

these are the newest wheels for that brand name. They are called Helo Slick. I still wish they had different finishes......not just chrome.....and i wanted the first choice cuz im tired of looking at the wheel nuts......i now want a wheel that has the wheel nut cover....but we'll see.....

I agree w/ everyone tho.......those chrome wills are hott.....i luv them the first time i saw em.

I really like the second ones. I esp. like how they taper near the rim itself...

which wheels did he had.....#1 or #2? I would luv to see pix of that car.

also: anyone w/ chop skills can do me a favor and chop both wheels if possible on my car( i will send ya the pic.....since i cant post them per rule #14)....

thanks guys for ur opinions...im kinda also leaning to #2.....they cost almost twice then set #1.....without tires!!!

im glad they dont have thick & flashy spokes like most chrome rims....just enuff to let u know that u can 'bling' w/o being too obnoxious about it ....

i just spent like 2gs on performance mods so ill see how my bank account feels spending another $2k for this babies
