Re: Sharpest Wheels For A C70 ..... (RD)

I want to see somebody put some BBS LM's on a C70, that would be SO hot.

Re: Sharpest Wheels For A C70 ..... (Lusso5)

I've tried to put the Volans on the rears once, looked pretty bad...as in fugly bad. Not sure if you want to go for that look on a C70. Canistos aren't the best looking wheels they could make for the C70, but also not the worst.

Re: Sharpest Wheels For A C70 ..... (The_one_n_only)

<br>I checked out the O Z website and found that the only wheels for<br>the C70 were the SUPERLEGGERA III and the Volcano's. I was<br>hoping that the Opera series [ Lamborghini] wheels would fit.<p>I love those wheels!!<p>I think they would look great on a C70.<p>TireRack once had the BBS RX Chromes but were discontinued. Nice also.<p> rd<br>

Re: Sharpest Wheels For A C70 ..... (GShyneDM)

I concur. I love my chromed Canistos. Very classy looking. When I bought my car I initially had bought chromed Comets. I had the original Comets on the car for a week or so. I never liked the look. I got a call from the Volvo dealer that my rims were in. So on a Saturday I went to get them installed. They shipped 2 sets of wheels and tires. A set of chromed Comets and a set of Chromed Canistos. They put on the Comets first. And the car looked better but not quite right. I asked them to put on the Canistos. Whammo. Perfect. Since the dealer told me he screwed up the offered me anything within reason I wanted for free. I had them give me that $1200 interior/exterior treament thats really worth $200 bucks on a good day.<br>So all in all I am thrilled with my rim choice. Perfect. But to each his own.

Those are the Tritons. I just checked the wheel gallery? The propus ones are 9 double-spoke, the tritons 10. But I thought the Tritons only came in 18"? Gallery error? George?

Re: Sharpest Wheels For A C70 ..... (BenES)

<br>I would love to chrome my Canisto's but like to do my homework first.<p>I first saw Chromed Canisto's when Vanna White was standing next<br>to them on " Wheel Of Fortune " three years ago and I thought they looked better than her!!!! [ LOL ]<p>For those who have chromed Canisto's are you happy with the finish.<p>Another words are there any issues with rusting, bubbling, blemishes?<p>Also, how do they do with front wheel brake dust. It's a royal PITA on my<br>Clear Coat Canisto's. Gota stay on top of dust weekly.<p>ty<p>rd<br>

Re: Sharpest Wheels For A C70 ..... (RD)

finish is flawless, they came chromed stock so I don't know the difference if you get them chromed on your own. Everyone asks me where I got the aftermarket rims, I tell em' they came with the car and they don't ever believe me. Once again, if only 18' or even 19'...one day. Yeah front break dust, you clean em weekly, I clean em bi- or tri- daily. IF you look at the newer bimmers, that gunmetal gray look, that's prob brake dust, same thing with these rims only not nearly as bad. Just looks like a darker chrome, still sparkles no matter how dirty. I heard a preference of canistos minus the chrome. That's like: Question "What makes an ideal woman?" Answer: "Semi perfect, pretty hot but only kinda, nice ass but not that nice" Hehe, Jk, just playin'. You'll think that till you see your car drive by on chrome canistos.

I am sure you could do a better job, but you need friggin sunglasses to get near mine once there all cleaned up and sparkly. Because my car is a dark metallic color and because of the chromies my car gets washed 2x a week. To keep it nice looking and to keep the crud off the wheels. Once you put a chrome wheel on a car especially one of these cars it just makes it look right. Although the chrome Comets I could of had that were on another car looked weird to me. Cheap or something. Not quite sure. Just .02 worth.<br>I always get people asking me about the car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
