What do you think of these wheels?

I'm still deciding on which rims to get. I am either thinking of these bbs's, brabus VI's, or M-Parallel's. I basically want something with a nice dish or lip. Hamann PG's would be nice, but are way too expensive. All the rims listed below are 18" x 8.5". I refuse to go any smaller =)

djcontra, is that your car in the sig. If so how deep is the front lip on the rims

i LOVE the parallels, but the GOLD LIP really works MAGIC ON ME!

djcontra 04-09-2003 11:30 PM

no that's not my car in the pic, but that's a photoshop of a red e36 showing how I want my project car to turn out.
I've got everything shown in that pic in my basement right now minus rims, but now that it's getting warmer out I can actually start installing all this stuff =)

The gold shown on the rim at the top is actually a reflection, it's supposed to be a polished silver lip. If I got those, I would paint the center spokes gold, or black like on the GTR cars.

hehe I know what you mean, that's the downside. Then again, i DO have Rials on my car right now which are Porsche rims :D

ill go for the M pirellis.......*mw*

M-Parallels own.

M-Parallels on E38 7-series own. Really, you can rant about 'flame surfacing' and 'new design frontiers' and what not, but the E38 looks better than the E65. End of story.

A little OT I know, but I saw another E38 w/ M-Parallels today on the 401. *mw*

i voted BBS.....classic look thats says you mean business

BBS = Boring + played out
M-Parralells = see above
Brabus = You'd be unique, creative, and your car would thank you.

I put my money down for these ones as well. By far the best looking OEM cross spoke. I have loved these since day 1. At the last minute I took my deposit back to get another set of cross spokes... I will show them to ya when I get them in the next 2 weeks.

I love those rims!
