    I don't mind the stock but they are hashed. I'm looking for some new ones currently as I need new shoes too. I'll buy them in a package. Stumped on what to get so recos welcome.

    Hell, since you found the rig, maybe you have an in on some wheels. .

    Honestly I am stoked on the BBS CH-R's on my car and I think they woud look good on yours too but it's a matter of taste. They are fairly light-ish, strong and not all THAT expensive. But the BEST thing about them is the polished stainless lip they come with. Awesome feature. You curb them, you pull the lip off and replace it for $50 and you can easily do it yourself. No tools required. Hell no skill required. If you get the bright silver ones the lip blends right in, you can't even see it: http://bbs.com/en/products/performance_line/ch-r.php

    There are probably other wheels out there with this feature but I don't know of them. You can buy the lips from BBS America or Tirerack, same exact price. ~$52. or so.

    The titanium ones would look good on your car too but the lip stands out against the titanium.

    You are actually speaking my language. I was looking at these and had wondered about the lip. I may pull the cord.

    Don't get 20's. 19s are perfect for that car or 18's if you want to err on the side of caution for bad roads.

    I'm with CL, I like the stock on that whip. However the rims that Ice posted are really sharp and the removable lip is a feature I wish I would have had on many waaaaay-too-expensive BMW rims.

    If you've ever curbed sweet wheels you know what I'm talking about. Terrible feeling. The lip fixes that.

    Nah. Sorry.

    There's never really been a good Audi or BMW wheel that I'm aware of. Maybe back in the '70's. Not since.

    Wagon Stoke

    It's tough to find an after market wheel that doesn't make me look like some modding douchebag but bbs has some solid offerings. The replaceable rim is a huge draw. That scrap makes my skin crawl.

    Yikes.

    BMW Wheels

    The BBS CH-R second row center is clearly the best looking wheel there.

    imo

    It's the worst. And you will do it. You know that. And these wheels are awesome on their own but the lip is the killer app.

    Fuck, I don't work for BBS, buy what you want.

    That's one reason I haven't replaced them - I'll just nick up new ones too. Figured I may hammer these into the ground unless I can find a decent deal on audizine or tirerack or some other joint.

    I'm a stock homer and most of those that show up in that link are the newer gaudy BMW wheels. I love the traditional powdercoat BMW wheels, like a lot of these. But that's like, just my opinion man.

    Well, that's because you're an Audi guy, clearly.

    Easy bro.

    Like CL's rims, I usually think that the manufacturer gets it right for the overall design. Keeping it wagon stoke I always though these were tight.

    Always loved the look of those 5 series wagons.

    He owns an Audi. And yet you persist with the BMW shit. Curious.

    Really I was just professing my favor for stock rims and using the BM rims as an example, but whatever.

    I was feeling a bit ornery last night, sorry. BMW stock wheels are better than Audi but to me both are an afterthought to their respective manufacturers and are best used for snow tires.

    Now these wheels I like:



    although the rear one looks a bit odd, I guess it's just the pic? Or it got mashed. Not sure.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Crude but fun from years ago, Volvo wagons with the mustang drivetrain swap. Looking back it's pretty lucky no one got hurt given the stupid things done in that setup.

    No worries.

    Yeah, those 911 rims are classic. I believe they're staggered and the rears are wider if I recall correctly

    A mustang drivetrain in a 7series Volvo wagon!?! I need to hear about this.
