So, I am at a crossroads. I have come to terms with my wheel addiction, as in I know I have one, I have accepted it, and I must continue to feed the need. I am currently running a set of medusas powder coated black, but still have my set of R41s sitting in the garage. I really like both, but I MUST get rid of one. It took 15mm spacers from Viva to get the medusas to fit, and they fit well.<p>Pix:<br>R41s<br><IMG SRC="http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a178/Stugger/50DSCN0200.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a178/Stugger/50DSCN0204.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Medusas<br><IMG SRC="http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee328/apolvc/Swedespeed/NayAug2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee328/apolvc/Swedespeed/NayAug4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>A better example of a medusa, not my set:<br><IMG SRC="http://i342.photobucket.com/albums/o427/Investar666/L1020724.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Pix of Medusas could be better, but you get the idea.<p>It IS easier to clean the R41s, which is a pro. Both look badass in my opinion, but I cannot keep both.<p>WHAT DO I DO!?!?!?

I vote Medusa's. But I don't think I'd ever use them personally, looks like a pain to clean. lol. I love the look though, I'm just too lazy.

Re: (mpdbrown)

My vote - do not buy Diamondback tires again for whichever set you decide to keep. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>BTW, what are people voting on, which set to keep or which set to get rid of?

Re: (I Roll)

I like both Bob, but the Medusas got my vote. They look bad arse in black power coat...like the car means more "business" with the stance.<p>Think those are a b*tch to clean, try these. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2443/3660506692_d62db519d2_o.jpg" BORDER="0">
