wheels wheels wheels

so After i got the bbs RGR i ended up selling them a week later. they looked good but did not realy hit the spot. as they were..can I say to boxy with they straight spokes and the classic look. so I am now looking at somthing simple that goes with the lines of the car ( the Viggen). see below and let me know what you think. they are sport edition KM 11 18x8 35mm in silver, they don't come in that dark satin finish .. bumber..
should I go back the rgr, or should do the common CH.

The BBS's are sweet, but I think they're overplayed.

Like laxian says, 5 spokes are a good look for our cars. I like those.

Are you serious?

You had BBS RGRs and you are considering "Sport" wheels that are like $80/wheel?

Wow.

I still like the CH's best.

But to each his/her own.

The best compliment to the cars lines are the stock wheels.

5x112 with bbs wobble seat bolts, the center bote is 72.2 i have a 72.6 /65.1 centering rings, If they don't fit the wheels I will machine the rings to 72.2.
But that is all in the air so far.

[I parshly regret letting them go, but honesly, they would had been a theft magnet, and as i mentioned they did not look like they were right for the lines of the car unless i would have lowered the car, and that is somthing i am trying to avoid doing since the car rides nice as is.

I agree, except that they are 17" x7.5, not agressive enough. actually very mild look.

yes, cause i am not putting 225 40 18 which has a larger diameter than the stock tires. I will be using 215 40 18 which will have the same diameter as stock tires. 225 40 18 raises the car and surley the car will need to be lowered. I have two more cars that i lowered the crab out of them, but this one I am only keeping as stock as I can especially when the suspension feels brand new.
