Opinion on rims

Which set of rims do you think would look better?

#1. Racing Hart C5's in black?


#2. Axis Reverb




difference in price is 200 more for the racing harts.

Well i have only seen pics of the axis rims so i dunno how they actually look. i'm afraid the spokes stick out farther than the lip itself.

I was all ready to back the axis until I saw the pics. The axis looks better from the side view bu the 3/4 shot looks horrible.

C5's

i gotta say the axis cause i've seen both of them in person and the c5's are pretty nice but its just too plain and the axis has the aggressive look to it and the c5
s in black dont look right.

I live in Louisiana. I guess I will just have to get some silver ones and powdercoat them because I dont think I could get a hold of any if they dont make them anymore. That is a major bummer, cause I have been looking for those specific rims for at least 2 months. The only reason I havnt put any on is because I wanted the C5s in black with a silver lip. Hell, I would even dish out the cash for the real 2-peice Racing Harts if they came in black...

those are the CX's not the C5's. I'll probably get Sprewell to custom paint them for me. Already paid them a visit and asked about them.....
