Default Wagon wheels?

Now that Iíve tweaked the suspension, I need to add the final touch...wheels. Iím pretty much sold on Rota wheels, and have pretty much narrowed my search down to either the Rota Grid, or the Rota Subzero. Iím firm on two things...Iím going with 17ís, and theyíre going to be black (no polished lip either).

I know that in the end, wheels come down to personal choice. However, I wanted to see what you guys thought. Any Rotaís that you believe flows with the lines of a wagon better than another?

Thanks!

I have had a few different wheels on my wagon. My opinion is that wheels with rounder spokes looked better, they flowed better with the roundness of the wagon. Since mine is a bug eye (more roundness all over) it may not be the same. I used to have some Rota Attack which were OK, but the spokes were very sharp edges. My SSR Integrals looked much better with some roundness. Both are simple 5 spoke design.

Because you asked what I thought, I'll tell you that I don't like black wheels on cars. They always make think of cars with black steel wheels missing the hub caps. Good thing you don't have to listen to my advice.

Go cruise the rides section, especially the wagon thread.
