Just wanted to see what you guys think? I know it's probably a hate it or love it thing with gold/bronze wheels, but I like them. Plus at 600 shipped the price was good. The seller had these custom made by BBS through Tirerack.com. Anyways, any opinions are welcome, and my 17 inch wheels are still for sale. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Thanks,<br> Brian<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.88x2.com/gold.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

Re: Well, these are the new(old) wheels I bought. (volvos70turbo)

I am sorry but you wanted an honest opinion, right? On a scale from 0 to 10 (0=I hate them and 10=I am crazy about them) I would rate them at 3.<p>But hey, as long as you love them...who gives a hoot at what we think, right?<p>Sorry! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Yannis

Sorry man, but i have to agree with Yannis. I would rate them a 3 or a 4 on his scale only because of the gold color. On the other hand, performance wise, they should be pretty sweet since they are BBS. How do they compare to your older TSW rims in weight? The BBS's are lighter, right? At $600 that is a good price. Don't let us cramp your style, u should like your car more than anyone else! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

they definately have an "old school" look. Lets see it on a car. It may look better on an older car than a newer one. When you get'em mounted post some picts. <p>

You can always have them refinished in silver if you don't like the gold.<p>I had a VERY similar model BBS wheel on my 1994 Jetta GLX VR6. I think the center caps were identical actually. Anyway, as great looking as they were (silver, not gold <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> ), they were such a pain in the butt to keep clean. I eventually swapped them out for some GTI 5-spokers. I still think the BBS looked better, but the GTI wheels took about 5 minutes to wipe down...a major plus.

Actually, I kinda like the classic look of those wheels, but would prefer silver. $600 is a great price for BBS. I like a stock appearance to my cars so my favorites are the standard Volvo wheels like Perfos, Comets, Satellites, Volans, Titans, etc. <p>Enjoy your new rims!

Re: (captain snark)

These wheels are 16 inch. As for availability, I think these are older style BBS wheels. I don't know if you can still order them, I am buying mine used.<br>You may want to check with the tire rack.

Re: (captain snark)

Hi Captain Snark. I think I misread your message. My current wheels for sale are 17x8 inch TSW hock R wheels shod in 215-45-17 ZR inch rubber.<br>They only have around 3,000 miles on them. A few small blemishes and NO dents. I'm looking to get around $800 plus shipping(or local pickup)
