Form a psychological standpoint, I believe this implies that you are neither a leader nor a loser... Don't want to be first, can't stand to be last... Were you a middle child...

Eat some cake, arrive at Fest III ready to finish second in every race you participate in, and carry on...

Yup, middle child, but losing hasn't come easy for me. I typically don't lose a lot. But I like to choose activities I can win at. hahahaha

1 on 1 basketball was not one of my things.

Here you go...maybe this will help a little. Remember yours will be smaller since I had to overlay your 22s.

The polished fasteners on this wheel looks better against black centers (I have satin black centers on mine and like polished fasteners):





If you're sure you want the gunmetal finish on the centers rather than black, then I like this wheel the best of the 3 options:

While you know I obviously like black centers, I also know you're going with 20s. Black wheels tend to look smaller than silver ones do.

Something to keep in mind since you're going down in size. As I mentioned earlier, they're not going to look as big as they do in the pics.

Mine will be gloss black centers and polished lip.

I just don't want to spend the money to get the diamond cut.

Black will go better with you car than gunmetal. I think the Satin black is easier to keep clean than the gloss. You are going to love the new look. I know I did when I got my Forgelines. The car looks more like a muscle car with them.

Just put the smack down for team L99 again at CFest III, then they won't care if you have crushed diamonds or square wheels!
