I'm looking at these wheels

I'm looking to do a 21" up front with monotones. I'm looking at these 3 different companies, wheels are very similar black contrast:

Southern MC Elite 3D Jackpot, available in 21x3.25 & 21x3.5 . is there any noticeable difference in 3.25 vs 3.5?

Also looking into SMT Machining Simply Sinisterr, only available in 21x3.25
&
FTD Custom wheels 3 Shot, also only comes in 21x3.25

Any suggestions & info will be appreciated.

first pic is the Southern MC Jackpot

IDK if you saw my issues with FTD, but I am sure if you ensure they ship the rotor mounting bolts they will perhaps take more care in ensuring that they are shipped with the wheel. Other than that, I really like the wheel. I looked into SMT's Simply Sinister wheel as well. Nice quality and customer service. I chose the FTD because they had smaller hole cutouts in the spoke and were significantly cheaper for pretty much the same wheel. I do like SMT's rotors better though. And SMT's rotors cost less than FTD's as well. Not familiar with Southern MC as I didn't consider them due to shape of cutouts in the spokes. Best of luck and great choice of wheel designs!

thanks just realized you have the chrome version of the FTD, your bike is looking awesome. I like all 3 but like floating rotors Southern offers. just wondering if there's a noticeable difference in a 3.25 vs a 3.5?

Thanks! Southern's are pretty cool too, I just when with the round because it will match better with other part's pattern like JH Choppers. You won't notice the thickness difference in the rim much I don't think. It will matter most with tire options you may have. But 130 plus tires are somewhat limited in availability. I stuck with a 120 Avon myself.
