Swoops in motion are the most amazing sight to behold, the only downside is they're non directional.

I like the 5 spokes, and yes, they look decent on Andrews car, but...I dunno...the swoops are pretty wild.

I like my swoopies, and at first, I didnt really like the 5 spokes, but my opinion is changing, those look damn good, I could buy 5 spokes and sell my swoops for a few hundred bucks (total: cost of 5 spokes - what i sell the swoops for), I would probably do it.

I am 99% sure I am selling my swoopies locally for $500 plus a free $280 tint job from a local shop with LLumar tint (he works for the company).

5-spokes had my vote since I first saw them on an 02 SLE at my local dealer back in the day. Bought the first set that came up on eBay a few months later.

So far I have showed my parents, my girlfriend and my roommates. None of them can tell the differences between the two styles without seeing them together.

It would appear then, that they are not enthusiasts like so many here (not that there is anything wrong with that). I just find them so distinctly different that I'm surprised by this.
