Default Which one?

Which do you like better?

Painted stockers:


New wheels:


Now, the good and the bad.

The Good:
1. They're 16x8 where the stockers are 16x7
2. They will stick out a little further than my stockers
3. They will be easier to take care of than my stock ones(I won't have to worry about painting them)

The Bad:
1. It's going to mean me spending a good bit of money(around $400)
2. I kinda like the look of my current wheels
3. Umm... I can't really think of much more.

But I want to get some of your guys opinions. Sooooo which one???

Had to edit this because I thought of another reason... I'm going for the whole white/black theme with my truck and having the DSG wheels kinda screws that up. BUT I have my headlights painted DSG so I still don't know what to do. I'm thinking get the new ones because it'll give me a little bit of "chrome"/some shiny sh!t which I kinda want more of.

I think both oxygen are sweet lookin but I like the stock ones better for some reason. They just flow on the truck better. Are those the only after market rims you want to get? I know many people get them but what about some black soft 8 cragars. I think they might look sweet. I just think save the 400 and stay stock or a different after market rim. Just my .02
