gold rims..help
 
im lookn at getting some gold rims soon but im having trouble at finding ones i like

i found these [url=http://www.wheelsnext.com/wheels-rims/AXIS-Reverb-Gold%20Gloss.html]AXIS Reverb Gold Gloss Wheel Rim at WheelsNext.com[/url]
but im thinking they are way to gold, but then i also hate that darkish brass color that claims its gold. whatever...

so can any of you guys recommend a good gold 5 spoke gold rim. lookn for them in the 17" range

thanks

I see what you mean, way to gold. Would you mind if each spoke spread out into 2?

Check this out, Rota makes great wheels for a great price. The are a little heavier, if weight is a biggie.

Then look into some Volk rims, TE or CE series, great looking, great on weigh, just not on the pocket. Might want to chime in on what your budget is.

srninjastar 11-29-2008 03:34 PM

$1000 or so

ahh i need some legit gold rims

CE28N, check them out by Volk, pretty nice but not in the budget. I like their color scheme though.

I don't see the point in being so picky about it. My Gold BBS rims don't stay gold for long with road dirt/brake dust. They bronze over fairly fast. I'd have to clean them about every 2-3 days to keep them from doing that. But, to each their own....

Nice point Turmic. Thats why I love my gun metal ones. They are hard to tell whent they are dirty ;).lol.

You can get gold BBS 04 STi rims for $700-$1000 used on nasioc pretty easy. They'll fit. 17x7.5" 16 lbs of forged goodness. The stock tire on em was 225/45/17... probably as wide as you want anyway so 7.5" width shouldn't be a problem.

Enkei RPF1! They come in gold if you wish, and they are the lightest reasonably priced wheel arould.
