What do you guys think?

I'm thinking about getting the GodSpeed Omega wheels but before I spend 2 grand I wanted to get some opinions on this photochop...

After all the drama in your previous thread, are you seriously asking for other people's opinion?

Hey, this is uncalled for. It's a good question without any pretenses or attitude.

What does one have to do with the other? If you don't have an opinion about what I asked then just take a walk or are you looking to start some more drama?

Those rims look awesome on your car. If you got the cash, I say go for it.

I had to put the two side-by-side to get a good feel, and that photochop looks so real!

I like the newer wheels, although because of the deep dish lip, I feel more of a drop would be necessary to have the same stance. It definitely gives the car a more aggressive look though. I like it.

Hmm...would you not think the gunmetal center would be too dark?

I like the new wheel option, but Jessies (wilson) wheel option would look so sexy imo. What size wheel are you gonna buy for the new wheels? Samir the photoshop gives a decent perspective on the wheel type, but the size and offset will determine the overall look in the end.

I still like his original choice over the first two. There's something about the simplicity of a monochromatic finish that works.

I have to agree with that. Sometimes simple is better. Here's a more close up pic of the wheels. Oh yeah... the 2 grand includes the tires too.



I thought about the gunmetal/grey option but then I was afraid that it would look like I was trying to match the silver car color. I looked at black spokes with machined lip but the black center looked to me like it gets lost in the wheel. I gave chrome a thought but there is nothing else on my car that's chrome except for the exhaust tips. I also wanted something that hasn't been done to death like Razors and Bullets. I really appreciate everyone's input.

Personally after seeing a close up they look cheap............not trying to be a hater just stating facts. Notice my car is still on stock wheels......and will be until I can afford what I want.......I-Forged FTW!!!!

Cons: There going to be heavier then stock. They look cheap once you get up close (I hate wanna be 3-piece wheels).

Pros: Rolling they would look good if that's the look your going for.

If I drove the car every day these would prolly be a good option. No need to beat up a $4500-$5000 set of I-Forged wheels. However if i didn't drive the car every day wait until spring and go for a set of big boy wheels......

BTW that add cracks me up "race inspried technology........ultra dip dish.....advanced ultra high performance........."

Gunmetal centers with a polished lip, polished cap, and chrome lug nuts looks awesome on silver. The contrast of light and dark is very easy on the eyes.

Its funny how D'prived asked a simple question and everything goes off in a completely different direction.....I think it cool that people throw out different ideas in threads but when a specific question is asked why throw out other thoughts? It would be different if he would have asked "I like these.......anyone else have any ideas?".

And to quote "Personally after seeing a close up they look cheap", to me all wheels look cheap online. Until I see the rims in person that is my opinion. A buddy of mine put a set of 22's on his Ram and I thought they looked like a crappy knock off when he showed me the pic of them. I finally got to see them in person and I was in complete shock on how good they actually look in person.
