Konig Helium or Rota Slipstream

I hate to post a thread like this, but there is a first time for everything. Anyhow, have been trying to decide betwee these 2 wheels for a couple weeks now. I like the Rota Slipstream the best. My wife likes the Konig heliums the best. They are for a black ex sedan. Any comments, opinions would be much appreciated!

Fact: Rota is a sub-category of Konig. Maxxim is also a sub-category of Konig.

I like Heliums for 17", but if it's 16" or 15" get Slipstream.

5-3 now....hmmm....ya they are definately going to be 15in. I wanted something light. I like the rotas in silver because they aren't too flashy. I thought about white and they do look good but too bling, bling, for me. I tell ya, I love this site.

Rotas in black or gunmetal. 15" or, preferably, 16". That's what I'm thinking of getting, unless I find some Si rims for cheap.

6-5...looks like i'll be ordering the rotas tomorrow. I knew the konigs were popular but the heliums just came out I think. I was just looking at them because they are 1lb lighter and are pretty cheap at the group buy center right now. 385 w/shipping. I am going with the rotas. I had never heard of the brand prior to searching out light-weight rims. I was worried about the quality. Anyhow, thanks for all the input. I am much obliged! My wife says the rotas look like a chinese star, like the ones you throw into the wall! [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG] O'well, it's my car! [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]
