Iforge Gold Essen or Iforge Estoril in Brushed Aluminum?

Need you input guys. Which rims would look better on a Monaco Blue 335I? Gold Essen or Brushed Aluminum Estoril. I have attatched pics but the Estoril is in Hyper Black.

I would go with the Estorils, though the Essens look great I think they would look best on a white car.

Oh come on, please don't put gold rims on your car. I think those look cheesy as hell.

Well these are what I have currently on my 335I Iforge Senekas. Only put them on when spring/summer comes around. What do you guys think stick with what I have or go with the Estorils?

Your wheels are nice right now, but the ones are posted are nicer then the ones you have now. The estorils and essens are both extremely nice. Hard to say which one I like better. Good Luck, but I do agree that both above are nicer then your current set.

i say brushed essens if you can, not really feeling the estorils cause i've never been a fan of 5 spoke wheel (imo, 7 is the minimum). your wheels now are nice too, but brushed essens are nicer.

gold on monaco? risky. i was considering this myself but decided not to do it until i see get an actual photo (not photoshop). gold wheels only look good on black and white cars

gold wheels look good with only a couple colors, and monaco ain't one of them. on monaco, brushed FTW!
