Enkei or Maxxim?

Hey guys, need some opinions on what you would go for. I'm waiting to buy a digital cam, so picture a 2009 Focus SES Sedan in Black with these options.

Both will be 17" x 7" on 215/45 tires.

Definitely the Enkei's. They'll go better with your color.

Enkei FTW, They make a very good quality wheel, can't go wrong there. Plus, it looks better, IMHO.

Well I guess I'm the lone wolf who prefers the Maxxim's. Not saying I don't like Enkei, just not those.

If I'm thinking correctly those are the Enkei J10's, right?

I actually like the Maxxim's looks too, but I also like the J10's a lot too, the Maxxim's are a lot cheaper. I did want to go the black on black route though, so we'll see :)
Thanks for the input guys. I'm looking some something black, with enough spokes like the Enkei's, I like gun-metal ones, but my options are limited in Canada. I would get from Tirerack or somewhere, but shipping is insane.

maxxim's are great quality wheels too. they are made by konig. so its a hard choice. i love enkei's tho. ive had experience with both brands and both are top notch. ill go with the maxxim because they are different.
