Love Arc 8's Probably one of the best looking rims to put "real tyres" on your car with. Gooby's got a sweet setup. Hopefully he will throw up some pictures.

Rk's are definitely sweet. LTW's as well....but, multi piece wheels vs mono-block is no competition.

Some stuff from OZ

Mitos-

Breytons-

Breytons on other peoples cars, but I personally would never run them....too expensive for my daily uses.




My personal choice, and what i'm going to run:

Diamond Racing.

Breytons can be had for fairly cheap if cheap's 1500ish. I used to be a bbs guy now it's OZ hands down. They make amazing wheels.

Eh, with a few exceptions (e.g., BBS LMs), multi-piece wheels tend to be popular only with the "hard parking" (show) crowd. Which is totally fine - I'm not judging, but there are many different scenes, and each has their own general philosophy.

Even better, I can never tell! That picture makes me miss my rear spoiler on my 325 I think I'm starting to get bored of my non-spoiler trunk.

So many nice wheels in this thread.

These aren't my favorite by far, but I do love CSL reps.

I also love TE37s.

I always have liked the te37's not many people rock them though. Dunno why they have a unique look to the spokes. They remind me of some work wheels.

Damn, I would just leave them, I love the polished aluminum look, or brushed steel, but I hate chrome wheels.

Didn't you have those wheels on your car when you got it? Or a similar set I think, what were those?

They're huge in the JDM scene. Not so much with Euro cars.
