I perfer 94/95 sc rims because they're directional, 89-92 sc rims aren't and one side always looks backward.

That is the only reason I like the 94-95 wheels. I prefer the look of the earlier ones.

I just got a set of the 94/95 (top picture) wheels.. much better looking IMHO.

(now if the winter would just hurry up and be done with it all so I can put them on I'd be happy)

Yes I did. I still have them, but not sure if I want to put them back on. Ive seen some that seem too smooth, but they usually dont have mirrors or handles either.
