Maybe the question really is.... Will they fit a 97 855R? then if so, what would it cost to get them - all 4 - back to minty fresh.<BR> <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1814166336" TARGET=_blank>http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1814166336</A> <P>TIA

It will cost you at least 100~150 a piece to get it back to the original polish look from Fiske.<P>If you ask me, I think the guy was trying to cover some very bad blemishes...that could be why he painted it w/ the ugly paint the first place.<P>I mean...seriously, if you want black color wheels, you wouldn't go out and spend the money and buy a set of high polished Fiske wheels and spray them with low grade paint once you bought them.<P>Just my 0.02..

I'm with Kai if he had the money to buy the rims why not have then professional painted ?Instead it looks like he bought a 99 cent can of paint and did it himself.I wonder if he acid washed them to try to remove the brake dust and ruined the finish ? Something is fishy.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.groovi.com/ebay/invoice.jpg"> <BR><P>

You know very well, they don't look good at all. <P>If you think spending additional $400~$500 after you buy the whole set for $425 is worth it...then by all means, just ask the TireRack experts or IPD<BR>
