Default WHICH WHEELS....please HELP ASAP

So i found two sets of wheels that i really like and would like to get them for my 2000 rs-t SRP.

Let me know which ones you like best.

I live the prodrive P7 gold because they are gold, but i like the technomagnesio wheels because they have a better offset and more tread on tires, plus i can always spray the technomagnesio sti gold

specs:

Prodrive P7 (i love gold lol)- $725 shipped
Gold
17x7 +52 w/ summer tires that have 50% tread here are pics. they are in great shape.

or

technomagnesio (better width, tire and offset) - $700 shipped
17x7.5 + 48 w/ tires that have 75% tread on them. They are also in great shape.

i like both sets, the gold i prefer, but then i prefer the offset and width of the technomagnesio wheels and the tires are better on those also.

Should i buy the techs and the pay the $13 for the gimmick motorsports sti gold wheel spray and spray them gold?

HELP PLEASE!!!! Im going to buy either one asap.

thanks

Paul, get the techs, I am a fan of the offset as well and the more inset center of the rim with protruding lip is a nice touch.

You mean Grimmspeed gold, I hope.

The gold will actually look really good on Sedona red. Get the Prodrives.
