...it only comes in a 20" size! Agh! I was looking at some Vossen VVSCV3 Matte Black wheels and even the VVSCV5 & VVS087's, and those are pretty much what I want (read as "can afford") other than my dream ADV5.1 wheels--which I still might get if I wait 2-3 years.

Anyone seen a good replacement for these. Matte Black just looks killer with the Passion Red (612) S40 color.

Hek, I've wondered about having some 18" Nebulas dipped in a matte black finish.

Aside from SUVs shiny chromes and the few high end sports car around I think it's amazing how much wheels are targetted for VWs and BMWs. . . 5x108 . . . uh sorry. . . not interested . . .



Story:

I know many think this style has been over done but non the less this was my wished wheels




Actually I got inspired by this guy:



For obvious reasons this was not going to happen :p


So I went on a hunt...
Found these:




Only to get disappointed they could not get this stupid 5x108 bolt pattern to work :facepalm: ... or would not care to... I'm not sure


After about 4 month of searching I found this:



But they were out of stock...

I waited about an other 4/6 month to finally get them imported



So in the end I'm quite happy




With some serious perseverance you might be able to get close to what you want!!! :D

I know how you feel, man. I'm pretty bummed that I won't be able to get the RPF1s that I really wanted.



I mean, there's always a way to get a wheel custom fitted to your car's application...but I'm just not prepared to go through all of that customization or pay the hefty price that comes along with it.

TG,

I've been looking (and lurking) at your wheels, and those are quite nice. If they came in matte black, I'd certainly be interested.

I know it's a detail but my favorite part is still the space behind the spoke by the outer rim. I love how it is not filled. It gives it so much more depth...


I'm not sure about mat but they do come in black. Do a search for Cades wheels in the UK...
Actually there you go: http://www.cadeswheels.com/wheels.html or

Bern full black is new. They had the one with the etched lines but know they offer a full black...

FYI: tire rack has a very similar one. Not as nice in the center cap but very close...

... and I found it for you ;)

Thanks! Should I even ask how much shipping for these are? :-/

Still less expensive than an ADV fix.
