Default Opinion Needed: Should I buy these/ would you recommend them?

I am looking replace my old rims (the stock monte rims) with these ones. Just wondering if anyone here has used/purchased them or if they know someone who has.
I'm going for the look of those 5-star or pronged rims that come with many of the pace car models. I have a 2002 Monte Carlo SS that looks just like this one if that helps.
But if you think I should leave it how it is just say that below.


I'm not a new user, just made a new account for a better name. (I was MonteCarloSS02)

Jack I have those rims on my 2002 and it is an SS High Sport. Mine has lost some of the anodized finish but you may be able to see them in some of the pics in my garage.

I would recommend getting them. I love the five star look. I have after market five star wheels on mine and it really jazzes up the look of the car.

GO FOR IT!.........

Thanks for all the feedback! I probably won't get them soon since I don't have a whole lot of spending money (I'm 16, but do have a job), and ofcourse at this age I'll still have to run it by my parents (my dad actually drove a 72 monte ss in high school) and my twin brother who I share the car with.
