Default D2 is killing me! Need some help!

... with their GREAT prices on their Work group buy .. now I'm totally confused!

Here is my dillemma. My favorite wheel so far has been the Work Equip. I wanted to get those in 19" chrome. Unfortunately they are not included in the group buy, but D2 still has a good price. I also really like a couple of the Euroline models they have that are part of the group buy... and they're growing on me even more. The problem is the Eqips are almost 1.5 times the Eurolines.. so I can't decide what to do. Now I need some reccomendations

First off I have a silver 94 LS400. I love the classic 5 spoke design of the Equips.. and I think in chrome they look great on a silver car. For the most part I haven't been a fan of silver wheels on silver cars.. If I had a black car, I would definitely get silver wheels.. I think thats a really classy look.

So the Eurolines I am considering are the SL, the DH, and the FE.. Now some pictures:



My favorite... and the most expensive

Another very sexy wheel, the Euroline SL:

The Euroline DH.. I'd get these if my car was a different color. I think on my silver LS these will just make the car look dated... But the So Cal guys rock these and they look great..

This is the last wheel I'm considering.. the FE. I've seen them look great on an LS430, and on a 3GS... but I'm not sure if they will go with my first gen LS.

So I don't know what to do. Right now the Euroline SL are really growing on me. I'm leaning towards getting a set of those in the Brushed Aluminum finish, or maybe even the chrome! But I think they will lose their look in chrome.. I don't know.

The other option is to try and save up some more, and get the Eqips. But if I do buy the Equips now, I'll have to wait for a little while longer before I can buy tires and actually get them on the car. Boy those SLs are looking sexier by the minute..

The other thing is I don't know how nice silver wheels will look on a silver car.. If I had a darker color, I wouldn't worry a bit..

So what do you guys think? Should I go with the SLs? Maybe SLs in chrome? Or just go with the Equips? I don't know! Need some opinions! The only consideration here is not money. Even if money wasn't an object, I'd still have trouble deciding between the Equips and the SLs.. I really wish my car was a darker color.. then I'd jump on the SLs in that brushed finish in a heartbeat.. Ahh I dunno.. I guess I can't go wrong.. but still..

I guess silver on silver doesn't look that bad.. but that color is significantly darker than the 94 LS I have:

I'm not feelin the black on silver look.. I dunno. I'll try to look for that pic. I don't remeber if it was the FE exactly or a very similar wheel.. but I'll look for it.

D2 is great, bought my set of works from him. I prefer the FE's as I like the mesh pattern, but I also like the 5 spoke. Can't go wrong with either.

All great choices, SL is very nice, would be my 2nd choice, but the top choice has to be the equip. Classic wheel, still a beautiful wheel and looks sick on the GS End of discussion

uhh, these are goin on a 1st gen LS4...

you still got my vote on the SL's and the FE's the DH Eurolines seem a bit played out almost just because so many LS' have them (not that thats a bad thing).

In my opinion...

1) Work Equips
2) Euroline FE's
3) Euroline SL's
4) Euroline DH's

They are all great choices. I can see why you're having such a hard time deciding.

I like the Work Equips the most because it's a classy 5 spoke wheel. You can basically put it on any car and it would look good no matter what. The Euroline FE's have that contemporary flare and a fin/mult-spoke design that's aesthetically pleasing. The SL's are great wheels too but on your car I find that it might look a bit busy. Ah and last but not least the DH's. A classic wheel but looks rather dated

Just my 2cents

I guess I jumped on the bandwagon at the right time.
