both are nice rims and will look good. Im just a big fan of 230s. Id luv to get my hands on them and may be painting them black like style 199s. Sad thing is no one will let them go for cheap so i might as well buy vmr wheels.

this pic just makes me drool all over my keyboard. Thinking how sick these wheels would look on my lci.

Yep, I have 230's on mine as well.....ballin.

I voted for the 225 M, but both looks very good on the car.
