Multi spoke is >10 spokes. The ones you like are called split 5 spoke.
Ok, thanks. Appreciate it.

Style is subjective. I personality love the look of gold wheels on a yellow car. Don't worry about what anyone else here things, go with what you like. After all, you're building a car for YOU, not for anyone else here.

I was messing with wheel combos on TireRack and I kinda think that the white O.Z. Alleggerita HLT wheels with LY looks decent.

Yellow and white. Yeah I'd get hungry every time I looked at it I guess.

Purple on the LY seems too much like LA Lakers. I want to do gun metal for my next set of wheels.

This is one of locals, hers are a satin black face with a brushed lip. I could see this style in a gunmetal face with the lip, it would look nice. These wheels are stock spec with 245/40-18 tires and she is lowered on Tein STechs on KYB Gasadjusts.

Those are not bad for black.
I like the idea of the gunmetal face & lip with the black background.

Nice LY, but I don't like strakes & the black fuel lid.

It was a factory option, it is polished. But yeah it is not my style either. But I don't hate it. I also dislike strakes except when they are black and on a black car.

I suspect it's a dealer installed option.

Are those wheels brushed from the factory like that, or can that be a DIY project?
