Im just curious... who has rare wheels here? If you got 'em... post em! If not.. just post some rare ones off the intraweb.
When I say rare, I don't mean SSR's, Contours, or HP Evo's....

Personally, with your car... I'd just get 24K Gold plated bolts (cheaper than it sounds!) and switch to the red centers or just keep yours.

I LOVE EM!!!

THe fact that they're so different is what gives them they're pimp factor,

If anyone wants some old rare rims, check out www.takumiproject.com its a company that basically finds and sells old pimpin wheels!

Not too many wheels for the E36's but the E30 guys can have some fun!

How many different ways can you do a 5 spoke or multispoke fake 2 piece rim before you get bored of it and look for something new?!?

SickFinga
04-24-2005, 03:11 PM
But those Mito's are 5 spoke...


Anyway, some of the rims you posted would only look good on some cars.

6spoke > 5 spoke

I tracked down a set of forged OZ Turbo's for E30's....
2 problems though... $1250 Usd. + shipping for a non-refinished set and they're 15"... I was hoping to find a set in 16" or bigger.

My bad, I guess Im so used to seeing the knock offs that the real ones look off to me :(

Sweet rims dude, I dont know how you parted with them.

...which just goes to prove my point that rare rims >>>> the usual crap out nowadays.

Well back then, I sold them to take an accelerated web design program at Humber, and I was getting an offer that I couldn't refuse for the rims so it made sense. Through taking that program, I ended up becoming an instructor at Humber for a few courses as well as becoming a member of their advisory board so it was a good move for me.

Rims can be bought and sold, but the education that I got from the course, assisted me to get to where I am today :)

Since I started a new position in Online Advertising at an advertising agency in Toronto, I have been so busy but I do still sit on the Board of Advisors for the Web Design and Development program at Humber. Who are your instructors ?
