Question Mesh, Spoke or Dish for GS430?

What do u guys think is better looking style wheels on pearl white GS430? Mesh, Spoke or Dish?
I think dish looks too bulky for GS.

IMO mesh (especially chrome) and pearlwhite is just a beautiful combo!!

Mesh or spoke on a pearl white. Maybe dish on a black or silver.

I'm very very partial to mesh and spoke.

LonelyT, depends on what u want.
Dish's are nice, goes very well with GS bodystyle since the car is "big body". THink spokes, IMO, do not go to well with the GS since the car is wide, sqaut (when lowered) and has a huge C-pillar. Thin spokes show off the brakes a lot too, so that is another mod you may want to do (or at least paint the stock brakes). To the human eye, it is more pleasing to have an odd number of spokes, thus the classic 5-spokes for instance. I prefer the spokes to be fat.
Mesh is classic. Good looking, quality mesh cannot lose. That is why it comes on many cars factory. But it is a biatch to clean. Mesh also shows off the cars countours more since it is hard for the human eye to focus on all those spokes (make sure your car is always clean) .

These are my opinions with a lil science thrown in.
