That seems to be the general consensus of the group as well. I'll probably keep two of them for track purposes, and maybe sell off the other two, and ebay the center caps. Those go for some buckage

No....! I really like the white Impy rims, at least paint two of them white and put them on the car and see what it looks like...

I had to vote Aerolite too.

Not that they steelies look bad necessarily, but not on that color car. On a black or dark green car, the steelies in black would look rather stealthy. On white... they look out of place to me.

I wonder which is the lighter rim though? Is the Aerolite name fitting, or misleading?

Call me crazy but I like them, they look really sharp in the white if you ask me.

I also voted for the Aerolites. I really like mine. At first when I had my white T-stars, I found the Aerolites to look odd, but they grew on me and they really fit the Bonnes well. I wish mine were white. :(

Well, at least nobody liked the silver painted steelies

I'll keep the Aerolites more than likely. After pricing 16" trim rings, and new tires, I could probably find a decent set of torquestars for the same cabbage.
