Need Opinions on rims (E30)

So what do you guys think? A or B
Keep in mind the different size, the price isn't that important

A: 17x7.5 Rial Viper


B: 16x7.5 Rial GS


Photoshop if you like

To my eye 5 spoke star wheels look good on e30s so my vote goes to the second one.

PS: How much does the second set run for?

Thanks

ryan i dont think either goes with your car, your car is really clean so you need a nice sharp set of rims. i would be leaning towards BBS in 17 x 7.5, something like these ones or anything bbs that you like for that matter.

Well it's either A or B, I don't want to wait anymore. And I need to make up my mind by monday!

Right now i'm leaning toward the "A" rims because they are bigger and stick to the BBS style. The "B" rims have such a nice dish though, but they are only 16" AHHH this is tough!

Good Call Windsor! Andre don't worry I get a slight tuck on the back and a perfect gap up front with the 17's

Miguel ... I had to wash my dash when I got home! I think you kicked up some dust before you left So do you like the "A" better, Is that the choice of a true playa?

Dave (M50E30) what do you mean by you like the bbs? as in "A" or the ones Windsor posted.
