Default TSW Cadwells - Opinions?

Due for new tires, so I'm considering going a bit larger with some reasonably priced TSW's. I understand the Cadwells are not high end and may be heavier.

Just want some opinions on these rims vs my stocks (pics attached). It's a 2008 Touring completely stock - I probably won't lower it, because I drive it in the snow with snow tires, but would add spacers. Also have traction control, so I can only change the wheel sizing so much.

You guys think these will look better than the stocks without lowering and adding a ground kit?

IMO I think the stock rims look better than the Cadwells. And for the price of them, I think you could do much better.

But that's just my opinion. It really is whether you like it better or not.

Don't like the Caldwells.
But of course,when it comes to wheels,you are gonna get alot of opinions.
Most are gonna be based on what is now "hot".If the wheel was black,you'd get
many yes votes.

Thats just the way it is.Chrome wheels are just not going to get much in the
way of a postive read.The design of the Caldwell is a bit old school.
Its your car.Do what you think you like, not what others think.
Design wise(for what its worth)If you like the split "star" format,I'd look for a rim
that has a smaller space between the spokes...maybe with the spokes that are not
straight to the rim but on a slight angle.
This wheel design was used on some of the later model Ferraris.There are many
brands that have similar designs.The trick will be to see if the wheel is available to fit a Z
and in the size you want.

I do like the "star" look, especially on this white 370.
The TSW Indy 500's look pretty good too. Just hate to spend a G and be disappointed once I see them on my car.

I have 6 weeks (of snow) to research and decide...

The INDY'S are better...as I suggested,slot between spokes a bit smaller,
a bit of an angle towards the rim.What color is your Z?

Pearl white. The .jpg labeled "stock" at the beginning of the post is an image of my car.

The Indy's look similar to the Work Gnosis GS2's...which I like.

You can get decent wheels with a TSW budget. Actually, TSW makes a wheel called the nurburgings which are lightweight and look pretty good. Check em out.

Talking out your *** bud. TSW may not be the best wheels but at least they come up with their own designs.

Yup, avant garde is a good budget wheel as well. Send a pm to Charles at B2AutoDesigns. He's a kickass vendor and offers good prices.

Any love for the TSW Carthage? I want a pair for my black '03, I think, but I can't find any photos of one with them to see how they'd look first.
