I bought SSR Comps. Did I make the right choice vs. P1?

Did I make the right choice by buying the SSRs instead of the Prodrive P1s? I have a Silverthorne Metallic MY99. Tell me why/why not!

the wheels LOOK great...i wanted a set so bad...just watch out for potholes, been hearing about people cracking wheels(this is all just hearsay, no REAL evidence)....they are LIGHT as hell, alot of the Bimmer Guys here run em for the road courses.

I say you did the right thing so long as you plan to use them for some motorsport purpose or other (autoX, open track, etc).

They are light, they are stong, and they look damn good.

I've no beef with the P1s or P7s as street wheels but they aren't in the same league technology wise as the SSRs.

Tire Slut at your service sir!

I went with anthracite (kinda like metallic black). I think anthracite wheels look awesome on the silver car. The P1s in contention were anthracite as well. I actually didn't know they made more than 1 color.

Sorry guys, they're on order. I just wanted some input after pulling the trigger on the big purchase. When I get 'em on, I'll leave some nice pics.

Nice choice...if I have the money I'll be picking up a set of 17" Gold SSRs when they come to the States...(Feb. according to TireRack, I think).. If not Rota Subzeros or OZ Superleggeras ! :D
