Put some Street edition wheels on my coupe

Original 2009 non polished wheels



Polished Street edition wheels



I think they make a big improvement

I'm not sure I like it.  I think maybe if you sent them to me and I tried them on my car my opinion might change.  It's a risk I am willing to take.

Yes but they are 1/4 the size of the stock spokes so it's still half the work to clean them.

Yes at some time in the 2009 model year the non chrome wheels changed to the type I took off. The Chrome 5 spoke wheels were still the same style as the 2006-08 style. Why? I don't know.

Thanks DeepBlueGXP! I do think they look much better than the stock 2009 non polished 5-spokes.

Just wondering but is it possible to get one of the other versions of GJ on the off chance it's an improvement?
