I dunno.. i'd really like to see those glides photochopped on the car. I'm not sure if it would look good with the car with the wide spokes, but hey...

uh....i MUCH prefer the glides, but that's just me. when i was picking wheels, the guy said if they don't just jump out at you on the page and you don't LOVE the picture, then you're not gonna like 'em on your car.

so i held off buying wheels that day because none of them really stood out for me. then i got a little frustrated thinking i was gonna be stuck with stock forever. but one day i was looking at a tuner mag and *BAM* i saw them. for me the enkei 5+ wheels were exactly what i was looking for and i loved them on the page.

bought 'em and love 'em on the car.

so my advice, if one of those isn't calling out to you, don't buy either. if one of those looks just right to you, buy it, and don't worry about our preference...that's what makes us all different.

remember, you're the one that's going to wash it and stare at it for hours and hours. get what you love.

I like the Konig Traffik. Looks easy and simple. But i also like the Konig Absolute in Graphite. Looks very nice.

F.Y.I. I was told by a Tire Rack guy that 205/40/17 would retain the same overall height as the factory 195/60/15 we have, thereby not throwing off your speedo reading. Also, going too tall on your tires will effectively reduce your gearing thereby slowing you down.

yeah I'm using a 215/40/17 and they're perfect. The only reason I'd go with 45s would be to fill the fender gap a little. But then you lose that low pro look.

*edit* Sorry I'm rolling on 205/40/17.....my bad.
