Which Wheels look/are better

Postby andrewgreen1000 » Fri Mar 26, 2010 11:26 pm

I am trying to decide which wheels to keep, and which ones to sell..

Option 1: 17x7 Advanti Medusa's with 2x dunlop direzza dz101's and 2x Hankook Vetus 195/45 tyres on them. both have small sidewalls, and so feel every single bunmp in the road, makes u realise ho stink NZ roads are. quite heavy, look great I think and handle well...

Image

Option 2: 16x7 ROH's, Dont know the name, but are lighter. Have 2x stink kingstars, and 2x GT radials. I think they look OK handling ok, prob better with some good tyres, but accelleration seems to be better, from seat of the pants dyno.

Image

I just want to see what you guys like better, and get some discussion going about which ones are better, and any ideas bout what ones should stay/go. as im 50/50 between looks and go.

Voted option 2, but those tyres have to go. Could sell both sets and get a nice light set of 15s with good rubber :)

I clicked option 2. They're not the best looking wheels out there, but they're lightyears ahead of the first set 8O

Agree with these 2, especially with selling both for some light 15's. Otherwise some proper lightweight japanese 17's if you want the look.

Voted 2. Not a big fan of either, TBH, but IMO the Medusa's and similar wheels are just too "busy".

sell both. those 17's are terrible. 16s (I have 16's) are not cheap on tyres... buy 15s or 17s. the bottom of my car scrapes on everything - the only reason I would chose (different) 17's.

Right so I managed to sell the set of ROH's on tardme. so I will have to hoon around on my 17s for a while :(
Hopefully someone will buy them soon, or ill just sell the rims for cheeper, and buy some different 17s so I can still use the tires I have.
