Sell my wheels?

So, I have a set of 1098 Forged wheels I was using on my 1199. I bought the front wheel adaptors and ran them last year. A few issues from last year...

One, the tire guy I had swap tires at the track thought using a screw driver was a great idea when needing to remove the wheel weights (Stick on style). Second, the wheels come with some seriously thin paint and just didn't look good after a while. The cleaner to get the weights off, etc... Nothing terrible...

I decided to have them painted similar in terms of color, but just a lot more metallic flake.

I am wondering if I should sell them or keep them? They are the forged ones as seen here from early last year. Love the 916 look and would keep, but I also love my S wheels and thinking maybe buy another set of those and sell these...

What says the forum?

Pics on the bike. These are at the time they were OEM. The only difference is glossy and more flake...

I'm sorry, there are wheels in that photo? I can't see them, perhaps you posted the wrong one...
Thanks from Claymore and Sinjin
