Did I order the wrong wheels?

My company vehicle flips in a few weeks (current car is a 2011 Taurus Limited), so I ordered a 2013 Fusion Titanium about a month or so ago. It's build date is 6/3, and I ought to see it a week or two later.

I ordered the car (FWD) with every virtually every option except navi. (I just can't see spending ~$900 for navigation when a Garmin costs about a hundred bucks, and my iPhone has a serviceable GPS with voice prompts. I should also note that I don't use my current GPS very often.) But every other option,- moonroof, driver assist package, active park assist, adaptive cruise control, premium mats, cargo net, all weather mats, stainless steel sill plates, ash cup coin holder, and cargo area protector,- will be on the car. (Oh yeah, no DVD player either.)

The only thing that's nagging at me a bit is my choice of wheels: instead of the 19" dark H-spoke wheels, I opted for the 19" Y-spoke bright wheels. Has anyone seen these wheels in person?? I hope I like them, but am a bit concerned. Appreciate any comments by anyone who's seen them or has them. Thx in advance.

The car will be black metallic, BTW.

I haven't seen them personally, but they should look good. Welcome to BOF!

I've seen both wheels in person and I do think the H pattern looks sportier, but the Y still looks pretty good. And welcome to the site.

The Y's will be much more unique and remind me a bit of rotiforms. I think they'll look great with the black car. If anything paint them (dark graphite/anthracite would be sick) and enjoy them.

Car was built 6/3; ETA at my local dealer is the week of 6/24. Seems like a lot of time for transit... ?

Car is on the lot, but has not been prepped. Wheels look good. I assume I'll pick it up on Tuesday; will post pictures after I take delivery.

I think the new style is sweet looking and I think I would have got the rims you choose.

How'd they come out? I saw them in person the other day and they looked perfect for the Fusion.
