Lightbulb *** two 5 spoke wheel choices ***

ok, here is the scoop:

the availability of Zauber Gettins is still up in the air, so i would like to get some feedback/opinions/thoughts on these two 5-spoke, clean and classy design wheels
(sorry neither one offer in 20"s):


http://www.kyh.co.jp/products/ame/sc...e_schrift.html


http://www.work-wheels.co.jp/wheels/.../tets1-2p.html


the lips depth for the AME is close to that of the Gettins, though i am not sure if AME measure the lip depth all the way to the edge of the lips; while the Work TS-1 is slightly less than the Gettins. but, the TS-1 does offer an extra finish option, Crystal Silver - similar to the light graphite finish on the IS300 wheels

now let me know what you think, thank you

william

ps, could someone please assist me in posting the pics from the above two links, greatly appreciated

Both are beautiful wheels. I don't think you can go wrong with either but the Termist's get my vote.

Now let's see some pricing. Probably not a great time to get these with the exchange rate.

I've seen the Terminist at Autobacs and it doesnt look all that impressive in person. I don't know why, but I like it in pictures better. I'd go with the AME wheel
