Default so yeah, i bought rims today...

this was one long day buying rims

so it started with placing an order online
i bought the V910



THEN
hour later
i changed my mind, so i called and changed it too




THEEENNNNNNNN
3 hours later
i changed my mind again, and changed it to



and i got stuck there and i realized that the dude answering the phone prolly hates me by now, all good i dont blame him lol... so they are order and should be here in a week to ten days, it sucks they might show up the day i leave to vegas and ill be gone for almost 10 days so about 3 or 4 weeks before i get to see them and put them on, they will be shipped out tomorrow!

so thats my story for the day

i picked the last one for few reasons
1- alot easier to clean
2- closer to what i have now
3- too many spokes kinda reminds me of the cts/sts rims
4- itll be alot easier to add the red stripe on

I have to agree, I think that the final ones look a little, oh, what'* the word... plain? But, you do have good reasons for ordering what you did. We'll just have to see what they look like on the Bonneville. Congrats!

All are great looking rims but I'm with Wake, the 2nd ones would look better IMO. They would all look good nonetheless.

i really do like the 2nd one but were i live its gonna be a problem cleaning it, too many spokes and it wont be that easy cleaning that deep lip behind them, the ones i bought are a little more.. mhmm sport? maybe? i dunno if not ill just use them for a year then sell them lol
