Default Looking to do some Saleen wheels

Before MW I upgraded to the Saleen leather seats & installed Kenwood in dash DVD with the Kicker/Shelby upgrade. I'm looking to do wheels now.

Looking at the Extreme wheels or the chrome Dark horse wheels.

After looking at these pics I'm leaning toward the Dark horse wheel in chrome. My car is a white RC

The 5-spokes show off the brakes better than most wheels.

Big fan of the Silver Extreme wheels. I have the Chrome but the Silver gives it the right amount of sportiness. The other wheels are a bit gaudy.

Looks good. Did you get those leather covers from Saleen or have them made up?

I have recently got an E-Car with Silver 5 spoke wheels and I have waited for them to grow on me, but they are not. So, if you are still interested in the Silver wheels consider mine for sale. Let me know.
