Default Alloy Designs for Chevy Aveo

Hello all,

Please help me select a good alloy design for Aveo. I am thinking of League and has shortlisted the following models. Please let me know which one you feel suits the car best.

Please feel free to suggest any other brand/design which might suit Aveo.

i like the second set better. seeing a lot of platy alloys on cars these days, its becoming far too common.

@ Nirmalts - IIRC, Aveo needs 4H alloys. Make sure that the designs you're considering come in 4Hs..
The J-007 is a pretty old design. Why don't you look at Lenso? They have some killer designs!

I liked the second from the first 2 choices and this one is also good.I think the last one is a better design,feels like a more strong one -IMO.

I am looking for 5-6 spokes. Which brands are these? The last 2 looks good
Sorry for my ignorance. What is an alloy lip?

A lip is present when the spokes are not flush with the outer surface of the rim - it's like a band between the outer surface and the points at which the spokes meet the rim. The first 2 and last options in the AMG.EUROPE's post have "lips".

I like the 1st one from Nirmal's post and the last one from AMG's post. Both of them Look Hot. Please check SRK's Design also the one which he posted on the photoshop thread. I really really liked that one!!

I like the first one, simple and fantastic. The plain long ones makes your wheel look bigger.

These wheels are from Rays/Volk Racing, pretty good quality stuff & quite expensive too.
