Default Need your opinions- SSR C-RS or VOLK TE37??

So I currently have some 17" SSR C-RS wheels on my car, but I have the opportunity to grab up my GF's 17" TE-37 in titanium finish. I'm really effen' torn on what looks better on my car....or I just don't know if I am used to the SSRs. So here are some pics....

I am a big fan of TE-37s but I think the SSRs' thinner spokes and darker finish are a better accent for your particular car.

SSRs look meaner, Volks look good too but kinda OEM on your car given the color.

You're a gay sticker.



I'm going to try to get a better pic of the TE's on the car soon.

Back when I used to do drifting, I looked for 17" 4x100 spinners for added drift bling. No ----, ded serious.

TE-37 = top 5 wheels on my list.

With that said, the SSRs look at home there.

I don't know what brakes you have atm, but I sort of remember you getting rid of the Brembo's and replacing them with kissy lips.
If that's the case go for the TE37, if you still have the Brembo's keep the SSR .

SSR's look better minus the stickers. But always had a weak spot for the Volks. Maybe the Volks redone in a darker shade.

I'll trade you my 16" Motegi MR7's with tires, and $500 for your SSR's.
If you put my 16" Motegi's on your car, and you park it somewhere and go into the mall or a store or something...you will come out and find bra's and panty's all over you car.
In all seriousness, I like those SSR's on your car. Keep the stickers, they keep the wheels from looking too plain, and at 14.7 lbs for a 17" wheel, that's pretty light I guess.

SSRs. Volks have no profile when looking at them straight on.
