Stuck between a rock and a hard place-what to choose

So im stuck between 2 good choices (imo) for my sedan. the question is, which wheels would look good on my car:

1: 17" tenzo mach 10


or

2: 15x7.5" rota slipstreams




and here's a recent side shot of the car (sorry for the crappy quality)
Edit: i just took these pics like 10 mins ago (3/31)





+and please be my guest if you wanna photochop the choice, any feedback would help, thanks.

Quick boredom ... PhotoChop ...

Tenzo


Rota


Pics are dark ... tried to match the color so the rims don't look super pasted on.

I like em both ... I for one like the Tenzos for Show and the Rotas for Go.

And I know this is not a PhotoShop Thread ... I just did it to give the man a more visual look.

get the Rota's... and if you want the a little bigger just go with the 17"s unless you are going to put drag radials...

Do they make those Rotas in 16s. If so the Rotas 5 spoke is sweet!

I would lean towards the Rotas if you're into performance, and the Tenzo's if you're into looks. Depends man, but if it were me and my car I'd get the Tenzo's.

Also, what's wrong with the wheels you have now? I think they look noice.
