In two minds to swap wheels??

I do like my (non genuine) rotas, I had them powder coated last year to get rid of some kerbing by last owner, but am now thinking some genuine silver ones would make it look more expensive & original looking? What you guys think? Something like these

Big fan of the peelers personally!

Or you could splash out for some 20" RS5 Rotors in hyper silver? They look the cats pyjamas!
