Well, actually, if other people like it, then I know after 6 months when I get tired of it, someone will buy it. But I do agree with you on the " if I like it part"...

ya ever meet a girl at happy hour and she is kool........?..but then on the second date, she talks you ears OFF?............well kinda the same thing. These may look good in all of these Fuji doctored up pictures, but might stink in real life............ . so its just one of those things. These wheels after I have them, might really suck and then I am stuck. Anyone who knows me knows , I change wheels every 6 months, so its a gamble. oh well............

THANKS GUYS FOR YOUR OPINIONS. I am going to order them.

they look sweet but think about maintenance with cleaning between all of those spokes! that's the only thing i wouldn't like, but if it's not a daily driver it's not that big of a deal.

Yeah , I know, thats the bisch !! THey are actually like a super bright silver with dark under tones......................kinda trick.

I dont know, I think the novelty of a SPEC-C replica might wear off FAST....but resale of the entire car in the spring might have a wider appeal...
