Hope I'm not resurrecting this thread from the dead(!) but I bought my 05 in 2012 with the "original" rims, and kept trying to like them. But as other folks have mentioned, I was constantly trying to keep them clean; when they became dusty from the brakes or just driving it for awhile, they took on an el-cheap-o appearance to me, like the tacky old uncle wearing his 1980's Michael Jackson "Thriller" jacket to a wedding reception. My intent was to go retro, so I chose the American Muscle wheel and tire combo, and am very happy with the results. If you can keep those GT premium wheels polished, they are quite striking, but you have to love polishing!
It's the car we've always wanted and can now afford, it's NOT a mid-life crisis!!
