not a big fan of the studs around the edge - look a bit out of place imho. what about 199 wheels? quite similar but without the studs:

I wouldn't mind if they came with the car, but I would never lay out money to buy those wheels. I think that there are so many better alternatives with aftermarket wheels, but that's just what I prefer.
