Default Which wheels should I buy/run?

Ok guys,

I am looking at a set of Enkei made JDM STI wheels that are available through Japanparts.com They look exactly like the wheels on the Spec C Type RA, but with a 5 X 100 bolt pattern. Im told they are lighter than the stock BBS. Here is a link:

Here is what they look like on the Spec C Type RA:

So, is it worth the 1700 bucks or should I stick with my silver BBS? Does anyone have these wheels around here?

Im not considering any other wheels. Just comments as to which one you like better. Its this one or the BBS!

well I know it's not what your focusing on, but in comparison...I just orderd the Gram Lights 57Fs on clearance for $1399 shipped. I dont know the stats on the ones your looking at but the grams are just under 17lbs each 18x8.5 and forged. Now they are the 5x114.3 bolt pattern cause I'm in an 06, but seems as though you could possibly do a bit better for the money your looking at spending. I spent 3 days of scouring the web before I found these.
