Default Silver Laces on my '99 SSEi

I've been thinking about switching from the 5-spokes to the silver cross laces for quite a while now. And finally....








...I think I convinced myself with a photochop. I want the lightest OEM wheels possible for the Ei and I like how the 5-spokes "rode" on the SLE better than the tstars. So the 5-spokers would go back to the SLE and I'd put up the chrome-tstars for sale unless anyone wants to trade straight up for silver laces
I stole your '93'* rims Pat


Original pic for comparison. I do like the 5 spokes a lot, but I feel like better performance and just mixing it up too...

I was tryin' to be sneaky and tinted my rear signal lens red like it is now and even rotated the lugs on the chop to help fool ya since the picture was taken in July

Thoughts??

I personally think 96-99s look better with crosslaces. You want my multispokes? I'll take the tstars.

No?

I like the silver laces but I've been tempted to try out a set of golds if the price were right

95% of the time I am too, but something intrigues me about the crosslaces, plus I know they're a few pounds lighter.

i'd trade you gold crosslaces for the chrome t-stars depending on condition and tires. Would have sold you my silver crosslaces too, but they were sold a couple months ago for $75 for the set...

Sorry, but I'd really rather have the silvers...
By the way I'd be keeping the tires that are on the t-stars because they're Potenza G009'* with less than 4000 miles on them
I sort of have a silver and blue theme going overall with the car too.

Wish I weren't so far away, I'd straight up trade my laces for the t-stars, but of course I'd have to keep my tires.

I like that. Are those the ones that are polished? Or just the flat gray? I've always like the look of the polished silver crosslace. I'd trade my T-stars for some.
