Opinion needed on new wheel choice

I currently have Piaa Super Rozzas but I'm looking for a new look w/ gold wheels. This is my car w/ the Piaa's (it does have a mild drop now).



These are the wheels I'm thinking of getting Rota D2



I was modeling the white on gold theme like this.



The Rota's are relatively cheap... ideally I'd want a set of these used Work VS-XX. I just can't seem to find the right offset.





Should I keep the silver Piaa's or go w/ gold Rota wheels???

I like the last wheels not the 5 spoke ones. I say keep the Piaas. The gold wide spokes dont look as nice.

if you put a cheap gold wheel on your car, it will make the car look cheap.

Why not get your Pisa wheels professionally painted - gold ?

Hmmm... I'd have to see the 5 spokes photoshopped onto the car. +1 for having the wheels you got now painted gold and +1 for the mesh wheels like on the M3 you pictured.

\/These ones. Go with these.

I'd prefer powder coating over painting. Im afraid that paint will easily chip. I originally wanted to get my piaas powder coated but I can't since the wheels are a 2 piece weld. So there's no way to seperate the face from the lip. If I were to powder coat then the lip would also have to be gold, which isn't what I want.

I really want the gold mesh ones but I jus can't seem to find any with a high offset.

Dont be. If its done properly by a pro ( with proper preparation ) the paint won't chip easily.

Average price on "powder coating" wheels is around $100 per wheel.

Ps. The first wheels are ugly. Not my taste. Even though they're the super expensive Work copies.
