Definitly showing lack of taste when you put those on a BMW....

Would be a nice set of rims for a S-class, or Hummer H2 if they where 32"

i have to admit, that s550 doesn't look half bad from the front. also, i did a double take on an s65 AMG the other day and it looked much better than the s550. i still can't stand the look of the entire back end though. also, i don't think the wheels are that bad if you choose the right finish. i just want wees to get rid of the wheels that are on his sig. those make my eyes bleed.

The back is my favorite. Love the tail lights.

I feel the same way, as long as young wees changes those wheels ...almost anything else will do.
