Default What wheels...

What wheels do you like better if you set price and brand aside.

Work XT7. So far two people have told me they look like "Honda Wheels".


Ultraleggera titanium. I know alot of people use these wheels, but it is one of the few styles I am really fond of. I have considered black, but I'm not sure if the lack of contrast on a cosmic blue car would work well.

Out of those two: Work XT7. I love the Ultraleggers, but they are everywhere it seems.

The way the spokes connect to the inner lip of the RPF1 makes it looks like the wheel is smaller than it actually is IMO. That's one of the reason I like these two styles, the spokes extend to the outside of the wheel.

I live over by Beltway 8 and Westheimer.

Probably the only reason I'm am hesitant about the Xt7, is that the lightest color is the matte gray. I am not sure if it will look "washed out" with the blue car.

Wish I payed more attention when my friends are using photoshop.

Best quotes so far:
Works = $1450
Oz = $1300

Anyone have any reputable vendors where I might be able to beat those prices? I'm having a hard time finding anyone with the Works period.
