Default Rim decision...

Hi Folks.
Would really appreciate your input on this one.
I was looking for a set of gold cross-lace style rims for my car, and one of our fellow members, Phil has contacted me with a set to sell.
I just can't decide if I should keep what I have, or go for the cross lace?

So, I am taking a poll to see what you folks think.
Here is what is on my car now:

Here is the style I am toying with:

Your opinions are appreciated.

I'm not a fan of the gold crosslegs, but I like them better than what you have now. Definetly go for the gold!

Wow, the response has really pointed the way so far!
Keep 'em comin' !

The ones Phil has for sale are a little rough around the outside edges (silver part), but nothing too serious. Apparently Wheel Wizards can fix them for $125.00ea (yikes)

Can they be sanded and painted? Anyone try that, and what results did you get??

Cheers,
Adam

I like the gold. I think the dark green is the only color I like the gold ones with.
