441M more 3D or 400M more ''large'' (in perspective)

You should mention, that this is purposed for a winter tire rim, dude
What about the Rial X10? Is more cheaper, looks pretty close to M performance and is available in different color specs...take a look.

Second one in photos IMO. I like the more detailed blades. Make the rim look larger.

more comparison ....

yet, not sure...
the thing is 441 is more pleasant but more thin and older (2014 models)
400 is more ''meaty'' and younger (2015-2016 models) but less pleasant ...
what to do?

i have ferric grey 441m, which i think is the nicer wheel between the two listed. the 441m has a groove behind the spokes which make it difficult and annoying to clean the brake dust, dirt and grime out of it. i notice the 400m does not have this groove in the pics so is say 400m for that reason alone. they almost look the same anyway with a 5-twin spoke design.

I prefer the look of the 400M. There's less bulk in the center, and it gives the illusion that the wheels are larger. Plus, I like the spokes on the 400M rather than the 441M. The 441M wheels look like a bunch of tuning forks stuck together, IMO.

With only these two wheel options, I'd go 441M.

Feel the exact opposite.. Look at the bulk on the 400M.. Someone get out the measuring tape.

WHOOPS! I meant 441M... I prefer the 441M because there is less bulk. Sorry, I was confused by the order of the pics OP posted, lol

The 441M also comes on 2015 models. It didn't stop in 2014.
