New Rims?

Well at the end of the season, I got some nasty curb rash and lost a centercap. Since then I've sort of become sick of them. I think I want a solid 5 spoke rim without a deep lip.
I was looking into these:

(just an example pic)They're rather inexpensive and I'm not looking to spend much more on the GA so that works. I really like that color as well.

Here's the current ones:


Opinions?


All that being said, anyone interested in buying the black ones? Like I said, curb rash and a missing centercap but I'd give you all the contact information to get a new one unless I get one before I sell them.

I'm not crazy about how skinny the spokes are on your prospective rims- you can see too much of the crap behind the rim, and that is usually dirty and annoying to keep clean IMO. I do like the idea though. Rims with lips are going out of style like Sik's mom jokes, as the lip makes your 18's look like 17s/16s, etc (unless they're all chrome).

Yeah I was thinkin the same thing, plus they'll make my brakes look tiny. Andd my current rims are starting to look small to me with the lip.

I like your old ones better too Bryan. I think your rims look great on your car, as for your rims lookin small to you, your just getting used to seeing them everyday. I would just replace the one rim you have curb rash on and save your money for something else.
