<IMG SRC="http://www.discounttiredirect.com/product/wheels/tnospt.large.jpg"> <P>These are Tecnomagnesio rims that actually fit the S7o. I saw some guy from Japan with of a set of these on his car. If I get them I would get the bronze, don't ask me why? I know you get what you pay for, but if one cracks I could easily buy another.(only $125 per rim)

I think that they look great as well, but I would get the Anthracite finish rather than the Bronze unless I had a blue Subaru WRX or something. I guess it depends on the color of your car. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

BTW, Tecnomagnesio rims are made by Sportec which seem to have a very good reputation from the AudiWorld folks. A 16x7 is around 19.6 lbs.<P>-Drew

On some blue, very few red, and flat black..that will look pretty decent. But you will need a more 'race car' looking car to go well with bronze color.<P>I've seen bronze color wheels on white cars, not too shabby, but not the best match either.<BR>

Rarely you can also find black-chrome, or light silver-ish gun powder color on white car looks decent.<P>I just think blue cars are the easiest color to match with different color wheels.<BR>

All of these color decisions are made simple by the fact that they only have the carbon silver color left for the 5X108 bolt pattern. I really wanted to be brave and get the bronze...oh well.

A white car can pull off <I>any</I> color wheel. I like to tie together colors in the wheels with other accent colors on the car. My new wheels have black center caps and lugs that match with the black trim accents on my car. The gold centers are a nice complement, and sort-of match with the interior.<P>Before, I ran the OEM Corona alloys painted flat black, with the very thin outer lip polished to define the tire/wheel breakpoint, and chrome lugnuts and small centercaps as accents. It looked pretty mean for a puny 14" wheel! <P>My votes for best matches on <I>your</I> car are - silver, black, white, gold/bronze, anthracite, or <B>hot pink</B>. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>
