I like the mk1 look better. Look into TSW and Enkei wheels, they are well made wheels and within your price range. If you dont mind putting stock wheels from another car on yours, the 350z anniversary rims are arguably one of the best looking once out there for these cars.

The ES2's to me are perfect. That style goes so damn well with our SC. Enkei ev5's are somewhat similar if you're looking for another option.

The 5-spoke gets my choice. As nice as the Volk TE-style is, they are just too common for me.

The five spokes look good and stand out more.

you really can't go wrong with either one.

I thought this was funny. I think the Te-37 style wheel is more common than rpf-1. The only wheel that beats out the te-37 is bbs lm style wheels.

Between your two choices I would go with the Mk1. The rear concave spokes look so good.

Out of curiosity, what are the Varrstoen mk1 wheels a reproductions of? I don't recognize the design.
