A wheel quandry:

How I bought it:



Or:



Yeah, the GF's are rare...and they look bigger...


I'm torn.

I like the GF's 50% of the time. I really like the klingons.

I love the klingons.

GF, mostly because they are very rare and have similar three spoke design anyway.

I've really never been a fan of the Fishers myself, so klingons it is.

The klingons just make the car look older than it really is.

The GF's look 10 times better.

I say Fisher's. I think they look dumb on 9-5 wagons (yeah, real GF wagons look dumb with those wheels). Oh yeah, I went there....

But I think the Fisher's look great on 9-3's. Especially frost grey ones. They have always been what really attracted my interest to that car when jay owned it.

GF for sure. Much less common by a long shot.

but, then again, you can paint the klingons and polish the lip. The GF doesn't have a that nice fat lip.

Thanks for the input!

It's funny, I threw this up on the local euro board and it was 11/8 for the klingons.

Agh, I'm still on the fence.
