Default 08 GP GXP wheels changed

i saw on today, and besides drooling on myself, i thought i noticed something weird

here is the new 08 GP GXP wheel



as apposed to the earlier GXP'*



i think i like the Newer ones better

Maybe they didnt change the sizes for front to back and we can use them on the Bonnes

Maybe it'* just the specific pictures, but I like the older ones better. Looks like the only difference is the hex "bolt" heads.

x6 for the older ones.

The hex heads are appealing to me.

Gotta jump in:
x8.
The older ones have a bit more style to them.

Edit: It seems to me that for '08 they are simply using Torrent type wheels?
