I like the eagles, but I would like them better if they were all black , and didn't have the polished lip.

I like I the look of on the second picture better.

See how they are held in place, maybe with a little work you can replace them with real bolt heads of your choice, maybe large button heads.

I'm more fond of the 185's for their shear cleanliness and I'm TOTALLY bias, but the ProComps don't look bad on there at all!! Actually the 7031 and 5034 have been tempting me in 17x8.5 size recently.

yeah it was a hard decision between the procomps and 185s...the 185s were gonna be close to $600 while the procomps were only a little over $300 so I went with them...either way I would have been happy lol
