Default Help me decide which Rotas: Silver SDRs or Steel Grey with machined lip Subzeros

Ok, I've got it narrowed down to two rims that I am looking at for my MY02 BRP 2.5RS.

Help me decide.

Which ones do you like better: Rota Silver SDRs or Steel Grey with machined lip Subzeros?

Silver SDRs



Steel Grey with machined lip Subzeros


Thanks for your help!

Brian

Good choice on wheels. I love the design of the SDRs in silver, and I like the sub-zero's steel grey with machined lip. Just never been a fan of the sub-zero's design. Go with SDRs, too bad they are not in gunmetal though. That would be my choice.

They do make a Smoked Steel Grey


I originally like the SDR Smoked Steel Grey, but after thinking about it for a while, I thought that the color might be too dark for my car, Blue Ridge Pearl.

Then I decided to go with something silver...a la the Silver SDRs.

But then I saw 2 sets of Subzeros (Silver with machined lip and steel grey) in person this past weekend and really liked them. Upon looking into the rims, I found the Steel Grey with machined lip and thought that was the best of both worlds - steel grey and silver.

If you like the sub-zeros design, go with it then. The grey with polished lip is great and will look better as you get break dust on the wheels. They would still look good with you car's color also.

I am off to drink some, I mean a lot of beer....

After seeing these two pictures next to each other, my mind was made up - SDRs. The subzeros look awefully close to stock.





Thanks to everyone for your help!

How much are the 17" SDRs, and what weight are they?
