Is it worth it for $129?

My wheel is 7/10 for cosmetics. I'd loooove an alcantara wheel that looks like that with such quality stitching, OEM-like cover 100% perfect fit.

Hey Benjamin, I saw your post in rigz for the ST spoiler. Wakes the back end up. I like it. I have the F2 carbon fiber spoiler for my SVT and I think it does the same. The top is painted body color (sonic blue) but I left the carbon fiber showing underneath.

Frosted Glass is a great color. It would really pop with some high powered silver, light weight, multi-spoke aftermarket wheels me thinks. Maybe something from OZ racing if in your budget :)

Thanks Jen.

I'm not quite looking for wheels yet as the tires still have a lot of tread left and if I did get a new set of wheels I'd stick to 17" or smaller for summer performance/ all season radials and would use the stock wheels for winter tires, however I'm not sure how well that would package with living in a compartment (apartment).

I kind of liked the Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.3s, as well as the factory gun metal or polished aluminum 17" wheels from the 2013, although they would be heavier than the aftermarket ones.
