Alright, so I've narrowed it down to 2 sets of wheels. I like the both, and they both have their pros and cons. Here they are:

02-03 Spec-V Gloss black
Pros: Professional powdercoating, Nice finish Cons: $150 more than below



04-06 Spec-V Silver
Pros: Only $250 Cons: Have soem rash and will need to be sanded/painted



I'm kinda leaning towards the 04-06 wheels cause i'm not sure I like the gloss black and it'll give me a big project to do over the next couple winter months (they won't be going on until mid-april anyways) The reason I like the other wheels is because I really love the style, but I'm not sure I want them in black now that I see it. btw, the 02-03 picture is from the seller, the 04-06 is just a generic pic so you can see what they look like.

So what do you guys think? 02-03, or 04-06?

Discuss! :grouphug:

hahahahaha. If you really want a set, check out a sentra forum like Allsentra.com. There are tons of people looking to get rid of their wheels. I found a half dozen sets that all came up within the last couple months. And maybe before next winter I can buy the SLs and put my snow tires on them :)

For the 6-spokes I was thinking gunmetal gray. Similar to this:



The ones I'm buying need a bit of work before they'll be at that level though, haha

i like the appearance of 5 and 7 spokes. imo 6 8 and 10 spokes too symmetrical.
But get what you won't regret a year from now:) Try photoshop the 6ers with bronze/gold etc. Can't beat a diy project:)

And the more I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards the 6 spokes. They've kinda grown on me :)

especially in that gunmetal finish. It looks nice.

DIY, for a couple reasons

1. I am a cheap SOB
2. I need a project to do while its cold and snowy here
3. I always feel more proud of mods that I do myself

And of course, I'll do a how-to write up :)

Alright, so I have definitely decided on the 6 spoke wheels. They are just so much cheaper that it would be crazy not to go for them. They are going to need some work to be back to original condition, but I think its worth it.

The question is, do I want black wheels, or gunmetal? I'm leaning towards gunmetal. As sooon as my refund check comes in I will be buying the wheels.

I'd say gunmetal. Both look good but black is played out. :(

My V has black mirrors and door handles so when I 1st got it I wanted black wheels but Im going a different route. :D

Yeah. Originally I was going for a blacked out look, but the gunmetal looks so nice.

harder to see the wheel detail in black. after checking out the amateur racing on Speedhunters and my kid's rims on Gran Turismo, i wanna paint mine crazy neon blue orange pink red green or something, just to contrast my grey:D Can't wait for your refund and new rims!

Bumping pic to 2nd page...

Sounds good. Silver and gunmetal should look good. Are you painting the center caps as well?

I'd love to paint my SLs but I'd rather get aftermarket 17s or 18s and keep the SLs as back up.

Yeah, I would paint the centercaps. And thanks for bumping the pic over here. I was going to do it when I got home. (I'm on my phone). I'm going to leave my snow tires on my steelies and use these for summer tires
