    I'm usually not a fan of 3rd party rims, but those are beautiful.

    Thanks! I'll try to get some better pictures of them today. They don't come out so well in doors ;). They also sent me the wrong lug nuts, so I need to swap these chrome ones out for black ones later, but they don't look bad for the time being.

    Very nice! Have you noticed lower power consumption with the lighter wheels?

    I believe so, but it's too early to tell by how much. That said, it would appear that my 25 mile drive to work today was down about 30kw/mi average. And it was raining/colder than when I had the stock wheels on. So when it's more of a fair comparison with similar weather I'll try to compare.
