Hmmmm....I'm not sure what I think of those. I'm all about chrome, and in theory I would have been all over this upgrade myself, but now after seeing the two side by side.....I'm undecided.

I have seen several sets of chrome 17" 5 spokes on ebay (around $800) from time to time from the same seller I bought my chrome gxp'* from. You could always send your 5 spokes out to get chromed and run the swoops until they get back and then swap them out and sell the swoops. (just an idea)

I think I have my wife talked into letting go ahead and get my 18"*, as long as I can sell both sets of my 17'*, the silver 5 stars and these swoops. I'm gonna pick up a set of tires for the originals so I can sell both sets with wheels and tires. Any takers??? Make me some offers.

And for those who mentioned taking the factory 5 spokes off my hands, I have them listed on the "for sale" section if you want to check them out. PM if interested.

Thanks all.

Joe.
