Do you like the ones on the red car or the silver car better?
Imagine the Silver cars with Chrome, not silver wheels as shown.

Easy decision. Buy the ones on the silver car. The ones on the red car are way too busy and ornate for the simple lines of the car. The silver car's wheels are very nice.

They look fantastic!!!!!:D
But there's really no sense if the 0-60 time jumps up to 20 seconds and mpg drops into the 30's. I hate to ask, but how heavey are these wheels?

Thanks, and still waiting for the right set of wheels the wouldn's impact the performance of my Smartie and still maintain mpg's closer to the factory 41 mpg.:D

Did a quick Photoshop of chrome wheels from the red to the silver, not very good one, and also can't figure out how to enlarge the pic's like above.

I like no chrome

As long as one can strip and powder coat I'm all for them but as I indicated when smartech first shared the customer car (silver smart) I am not a fan of that design.

The TSW wheels (the chrome ones) are a very traditional german design so I feel they are right for the fortwo.

Why?

Worse mileage, worse performance, and the ride would be terrible.

Unless you did suspension mods at the same time, the handling would not be much better.

To each his own...........
