Let me know what you think of these two wheels.

Motegi FF5 18X7 +42mm Hyper Black



Motegi DP6 18X7.5 +45mm Hyper Black



I need to make a decision by Monday so I can get them in time for the show I'm going to next week...debuting the newly reworked A/V system in my tC.

Thanx

I vote for the second one. The first looks too much like stock to me.

Second. I usually like 5's over 6's, but since I got my GN+ the 6's have grown on me.

The second choice is best but the offset could be better, i.e. lower number to fill out toward the fendern edges better.

OK Thanx guys. I kinda agree w/ you on the five star, been way over done. I got one more for you. What do you think of this one...

Motegi MR4 18X8 +40mm Gun Metal



Very different and I think the darker Gun Metal color would contrast very well w/ my SSM. I just don't know about it not having as lip. I like the deep dish look the lip give a wheel...opinions???

Also, will the 18X8 +40mm fit? Motegi's app guide says no...

i think the 10 spoke would fit fine. no reason an 18X8 wouldnt fit, as far as i can tell. lo bux is running a 17X8 and its a great set up with 245s. his car sticks hard in the corners.

oh, and that 10 spoke is a great looking rim. 5 spoke rims are to tuners what 13" wires are to low riders. you cant go wrong with them, but everyone has them. its kinda become the classic tuner wheel, you know? but maybe i am biased, i do have 10 spoke rims on my tC.
