I knew going into this purchase that I needed new tires. I also knew that I didn't like the condition of the old wheels.
For the price of new tires, I found a listing here for 5 new tires (13 miles on them) with the brand new 2013 wheels. They just happened to be 2 miles from my house, and the seller was super nice.
I think it's a vast improvement. I don't care if it's not true to the original design, they look 10x better to me.
