Angry Torq vs. Tork: I can't decide

Choice 2
Should I get the the black polish w/ chrome lip Tork Revo from wheelsnext
I like these over the HP evo. If you look at them closely you will see that it has a 5 spoke base and 3 different 5 spoke patterns in one rim.

19x9.5 front and rear with 275/30/R19 tires

I keep on switching choices I can't make my mind. What are your views & opinions?

Without seeing your car or knowing what you have I like the Revos personally. I think you're overanalyzing it though. There is no 3 5-spoke pattern though, its a standard split 10-spoke wheel.

I like the TTM 17's mainly because 19's are way to big IMO.

17 inch wheels are too small on our large cars. 17" just fail my wheel size to car size ratio, 19s look perfect. From what I read they may not be good bargain.

I like the TTM but they are not offered in a 19 inch diameter. Since the rim is black the diameter needs to be larger.

Does 10mm, going from a 40 to 30 ratio tire, really make that big of a difference in performance vs. stock?

17" =
18" =
19" =
20" =
22" =
24" =

MY car must just put everyone to sleep then

19's look great but you sacrifice a lot, tires are ridiculously expensive, same with 18's. I prefer 17's. Id go with the TTM's

I think the TTM's look alright but to me they look way to much like a mustang bullitt wheel

I hate rims with rivet things. TTM is my choice.

TTMs would be great in an 18 or 19... I'd go with the Revos

You and zlover have chrome, unlike black rims they look better in smaller diameter. Black wheels need to be slightly larger.

Tork! They look more exotic. I think the TTM's are overplayed now. But what do i know, i still roll on stockers.
