GT-P Wheels Like or Dislike?

I have really been considering changing the wheels on my GT-P when it arrives because i dont really like them. You have the awsum brembo brakes behind them and you really cant see much of them and it looks as they will make it hard to clean the calipers.
They look to much like the fairmont ghia wheels(a luxury wheel) rather than a sports wheel like the GT.Whats your opinion on the GT-P wheels?

They're alright but I'd go for an inch or 2 bigger & more open in design even if I really liked them tho I'd probably still go for something else just to be different

I think they are great. But at the end of the day it is your decision.

I prefer the GT-P wheels to the standard GT ones. They don't look bad, but they aren't the best looking wheels around. They are defiantly less offensive than over standard GT wheel, which I think are on the wrong side of good looking.

I was looking at a aftermarket 3 piece wheel possibly one of the nice Simmons or similar.
