what do you guys think of this rim?

so im in the market for some relatively cheap but still good quality everyday wheels. (so afraid of messing up my hyper 5zr's) and i stumbled on some sportmax that i think would look hot on my car. but id like to get the opinion of my fellow v6pers.

18x7.5
Sportmax 962 in gold



as you can tell i like the 5 spoke design :P

Why are you affaird of messing up your Hyperz? They are one of the strongest/best quailty rims you can buy.......

I know i have had to dodge some asshat and hit a pothole(big one) at 100KMs on atleast 3 counts, with no damage. Of course iam riding on 35's and you might be on 30's.. I can't tell from the picture.

Why tires are you running? i looked at that also when i bought my hyperszzz, so i bought a tire with a high sidewall/shoulder to prevent light curb rash. if you hit the curb your screwed.
But a light skid and the tire takes it all.
you should check out, the G-force T/A's.

i have nitto neogen 215/35/19 i wanted to get at least 225 but nitto only makes that size in 19. and i wanted the neogen cause of the negative camber its suppose to wear evenly and it actually does. and i want negative camber ( i think its looks better.)

Seen them on a white DC2 and they were TOO gold for my opinion...The design, and quality look exempt for a $132 rim, and they have a nice fatty lip that you can work with too. They just really gold if they were more of a bronze, or hyper silver that would be sick.
