New wheels look more bronze than gun metal. I like the new wheels.

I'd go with the Centennial wheels - they do look good.

Thanks for all the comments guys!

I actually like the Gumby's a lot. I'd just like to change it up a bit.

I'd consider spending up to $500 a wheel; but there just isn't very much out there within my price range. I haven't really seen anything that I like better than what I have. Since my tires are fairly new, I'd prefer to stay with stock sizes, which does limit the selection.
