Savini versus Avant Guarde wheels... a poll

So these are Savini wheels with a chrome center and Carbon fiber lip.

The AG wheels are a black center with Chrome lip.

Also... Should the AG wheels have a black center AND or a black center cap. And should they have black lugs.

Note: I know that black and yellow look great together and an all black wheel would also look good..... but I like the chrome touches as it picks up the chrome blower under the hood window.

From what I hear, Savini wheels are expensive garbage.

Well that is tedious... adding the pictures sideways. What a pain. Anyone know how to rotate them?

Question - will you be driving on these wheels?

It affects which way I'm going to vote

Well this car does it all. It is a daily driver during the summer, I go to track days and once a year to the drag strip. Also go to lots of cruises and shows. The AG wheels are "race" wheels. It is their race version... very light... titanium rivets. Nitto Invo's on the Savini wheels (LOVE the tread pattern) Michelin Pilot Super Sports on the AG wheels. (FABULOUS tire but tread pattern quite bland.)

Also note... the carbon fiber splitter is missing and is being replaced.... Came off at 150 MPH at Daytona Beach.

Ah - so you're going to be driving the car. In which case, AG wheels get my vote.

I agree with Stieger. I like the chrome center caps and polished/chrome lip. It does draw your eye a bit more and helps the Maggie stand out.
