    So I'm looking to ride these current wheel out for the winter then swap them for some new ones for next spring. Anyone out there currently running a 5-7 spoke wheel on their sho? All pics of all different rim accepted, just looking for ideas and trying to figure out what I want. Still trying to stay in the 19x9.5 range since I JUST got new tires and I really don't want to drop another 1000+ on tires.

    Ok, so I've narrowed down the choices for wheels, looking for any input good or bad.

    Personal preference - I like the black wheels, but not the gold thingy's on them, and again... I've warned you before, if you put too much bling or get YUGE turbskis, you are at risk of losing the OKest SHO moniker. :)

    Fair point! The one with the gold bolts are actually silver in another pic, I guess I grabbed the wrong one and didn't catch it =(. Turbos are still definitely going to happen but that is probably going to be the end of next year unless they pop before then!

    I think all three look good. However, my issue would be the dirt catchers (screws/bolts) recessed into the wheels. I've had those similar wheels on a Lexus LS460 and it was a pain in the ass to keep clean.

    Yeah, my current wheels have them and they suuuuuck. I'll probably end up with the 6 spoke but in black instead of chrome/silver, then I can powder coat them down the road if I want.
