What should I do?

I know I'm nuts but I just got the Sport Technos on the car 4 months ago but I'm already thinking of changing them. I'm thinking maybe the 19" Cargraphic's. I did a little photoshop here to get some opinions. What should I do?

I don't know how to start a poll or I would.

18" Sport Techno's



19" Cargraphic's

For all the money you are putting in the car why not get the Carrera 18" alloys since they are the nicest for the car. Besides looking sharp the Carrera's are easy to clean which the Cargraphic ones seem like a nightmare. If you still like that spaghetti style try the BBS LM.

I just looked at the BBS RS-GT. The Carrera wheels are OK, but not really that appealing to me. I don't like the stock look on them since they come on most Boxsters now. They look great for a stock wheel, but I want a "different" look. You don't see many Boxsters with the configuration I put together and I like that.

You couldn't pay me to run 19" wheels. You'll have have what, an inch of rubber between you and New York's finest [potholes].

If you like the style, at least stay with 18"

The Sport Technos look very nice. The Cargraphics look too busy; more like a BBS knockoff. And I have to agree about 19 inchers against NYC tarmac.

But hey ... it's your car, your money, your happy.

If you buy new wheels I may offer to buy your old ones.

Yeah, 19's would be real rough over all but the smoothest roads. Also, 19's would slightly reduce accel performance especially fromm the lightweight technos.I'd stick with what I have if I were you

Personally I think the technos look better, but if you sell them, I'll get second in line.
