I'm a fan of five spokes (as per my stokers), but that chrome polished look adds something too.

If both sets of tires are 17s and the new profile is 45 vs 55s, then your total tire diameter is slightly smaller, giving you less rotational mass to move. I would guess it'* now somewhat easier to cut them loose.

not bad, neither are the muti spokes I truly believe that the five spoke design makes the SSEi body style look that much better!

Thin, symmetrical 5-spoke rims are my favorite kind. I think those look great.

edit - Would it be possible to get the stock tire size on those? They might be up for consideration when I upgrade to an SSEi.
