  • The new ones are 😎!!


    NEW


    Definitely the new ones.


    👍new ones....


    I like the new but I am willing to bet they are the same old pita to clean.


    Thank you for your input. I like them both.


    Pros on the Old Wheels: The old wheels gives the "Definite-Five-Spoke" Look which I really like. Though the new wheels are Five-Spoke design, they look a lil "Mashed" while looking from the side.


    Pros on the New Wheels: They have an more aggressive look vs. the old. And since the entire wheels are the same color (the inside of the old wheels are painted black by the factory), they give a much "Clean-Look" IMHO.



    More of your inputs are appreciated! Would like to gather more thoughts.


    :-)


    Here's a one more comparison pic:



  • they actually look very similar to me, if the new ones were painted black inside like the old I probably would have thought you just changed the center caps.


    Don't get me wrong I do like the new better and if I were in the market would definitely consider these as a good option

  • I had to keep looking to see what the difference was.

    Glad you said something because I thought it was only me. When I first looked I thought it was a trick and maybe he had changed the center cap and polished the stock wheels or something and was pulling our leg. Took a much closer look for me to finally realize that they were actually different. because the design is so similar.

  • I must look at wheels a lot...cause they are night and day differences to me.

    It's all in the eye of the beholder. For me, you need to focus on the wheels for a few seconds before you can appreciate the difference with this kind of style but the new ones are nicer and fresher looking. I decided that if I was going to change the wheels, they needed to pop compared to the old ones, so I am getting these put on later this week :) It will help me reach my 60's batmobile inspiration nicely.

    Those are pretty sharp...similar to the Thrust D's a few people have put on. I like the way they bend in towards the edge and middle. I like it.

  • The new ones look a little more like a tuning fork than the old ones. I like them, but with as much brake dust as i get on mine i might have to go with a teflon coating. :)
