    I recently got a set of stock 17" wheels off of a '00 GT. They're the 5 star design. I have the stock set of 17" wheels that came on my car from the factory. They're the double split 5 star design. I'm going to get rid of one of the sets. Which rims would you guys keep? The stock rims have some discoloration, the center caps all look different colors, and there is light road rash on 2 of them. The ones off of the '00 GT are nice and one of them has a little curb rash, too. Thanks!

    I'm with tRaV. Not a big fan of either, but I would sooner have the 00's.

    The newer 5 stars are alot nicer i think, i didn't like my stock split 17's at all.

    You can also sand the curb rash out quite easily...i think there is a how to on the Bullittarchive website.
