Default Sneaks gets ANOTHER set of shoes

Well, I posted up the Ruff 278's I had been looking for for some time. They're gone. Luke(liveaboard74) came to pick up my chrome C6's, and liked the Ruffs so much we struck a deal. I put them on his MY coupe, and away my new wheels went.
What to do, what to do? They don't make the 278's anymore, so I needed to choose something else. I really liked the MRR GT5 wheel that Dennis at DD Mods posted he was vending last year. So, I called him up,and ordered a 19/19 set up. 8.5 fronts(2 inch lip) 9.5 rears(3 inch lip). Talked to him for about 35 minutes. Great guy to talk to!
Here's a few shots from last night after I installed them:







And a couple from this afternoon at the golf course,after the suspension settled back down:


I really like the look, and especially like the black painted barrells. Much easier to keep clean. Gotta thank Dennis for getting them to me fast. Great guy to deal with.
What do you guys and gals think?

I'm with you on the black Munch. Sets off the machined faces nicely.
