gold rims..help

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

i found these AXIS Reverb Gold Gloss Wheel Rim at WheelsNext.com
but im thinking they are way to gold, but then i also hate that darkish brass color that claims its gold. whatever...

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.

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....

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.

04 STi 16G powered lagless fun
