Default Need help photoshoping wheels

Sorry guys, I know you guys must get this a lot.

But I need to replace my wheels, and I have narrow down my choices, but I don't know whether or the thin or thick look will be better on 18". Also I love my gold on blue look and I am not sure how silver will look

Help me out? Thanks The only important thing I am looking for is the wheels to be 18", like that it covers just my original wheels and nothing more, I want to see the proportions on my car.

This is the only side profile shot I have but its too saturated...



So can you do the front wheel as well with the one wheel you think that looks the best from the 1st set?



Here are the possible choices:

Enkei Rp03



Enkei GTc 01



OZ Ultraleggera gold (sorry cant find a frontal view)



Thanks a lot guys!

I think those Ultraleggera Gold would look pretty sick, can't wait to see the chops too!

Dunnojack and Seize, thank you both so much!

My worst fears confirmed

Ultraleggera are too thin for 18" apparently, makes the wheel look cheap. I'm glad thats the case as the Ultraleggera although inexpensive have really crappy offsets and no stagger setup.

The GTc 01's looks pretty nice, and have really good staggered offsets and widths. However they are expensive and the thin spoke although looks pretty good, they are almost border line too "normal" and OEM looking which defeats the purpose a bit.

The Rp03 are my personal fav as well, and they are also inexpensive + good offsets. I love the simple thicker design. However they are not as expensive and I am at a loss as to why... hope its not cuz its lower quality as quality is the reason why I am thinking of getting new wheels anyways.. but its Enkei *confused*

My new coilover fund is being supplemented from my college textbooks fund.

My priorities are pretty messed up haha.

I need to replace my wheels so I figure I will go with something more sporty and aggressive offsets in anticipations of the drop.
