Welcome to the Fest.
Cool wheels. How heavy are they? Are they forged or cast?

BTW, judging by your name, are you Brazilian by any chance?

They're quit heavy. Sorry, but what's forged?

When you make a wheel, you can pour the liquid metal into casts and let it cool and harden (casting), or you can use high pressure to force the molten metal into a specific shape (forging). Forging makes the metal stronger, so wheel designers can afford to make the wheel thinner, and therefore, lighter.

Oh, you like Nelson Piquet.
Piquet was a big star in Brazil, right after Emerson Fittipaldi established F1 as a national obsession for Brasilians (ranking just below soccer).

Those look great! I'm typically not a fan of aftermarket rims on 3ers since 9 times out of 10 they look bad/blingy/etc. but those are classy, sporty, and stock-looking all at once. Well done!

"Blinkers" I thought that was only a wacky US saying!

Rambaclad.

They are called indicators. And hm...clear is more the word, rather than white.

I like breyton wheels,I think they are the best looking out of aftermarket ones. Those spirits are 2 piece split wheels. I think they are quite heavy, but nice design nonetheless.

Btw those are 8.5inches X 18.

Your tyres are bending towards the inside of the rim, you should have gotten 235's. Not a disaster on good roads, but on broken tarma they should tramline like crazy.

Where do you live in Holland? I lived in Hoogland (northeast of Amersfoort) for a few years in the late 70s/early 80s and my daughter lives in Voorburg. Tot ziens.
