What do you think of these?

A local auto shop here recently became a dealer of "Fast Wheels Canada", he sells them lower than the retail price, but all that is available in 5x108 is these:

Should I might as well just get some Cobra's instead?

I know style is really just opinion, but I'd like some feedback on any you think would look good on our MN12s.

not bad looking, but by the looks of it the only wheel with the right offset is a 14x6 wheel....might not be what you want. Otherwise they are all +40 offset. not sure if thats to much. +36 is pretty much perfect.

I've seen better for $156ea. I don't think the style compliments a single aspect to these cars.

The quality of 90% of aftermarket wheels sucks, last I checked ultra isn't part of the other 10%

^^^^

I wish more people knew this. If you needed wheels because your OEMS are trashed that one story. But jsut to buy them to buy them is another. Wheels aren't needed very often.

Spinning pies like wheels.

I need summers since my all-seasons which may be any number of years old (got them with the car) are becoming increasingly garbage so I am upgrading the stock rims at the same time for both better ride quality and style.

Can you give me some suggestions and where I can get something good?

I'll be honest I'd really like to get some chrome black Cobra rims or similar look-alike.

Oh man I'm dumb I really gotta look closer next time.
