Everytime I see aftermarket wheels on a BB R34 they never seem to look as good as the originals. Don't get me wrong the wheels you have chosen look excellent off the car, and not too bad on it; but just not as good as the standard ones.

I have come to the conclusion that is the colour of the wheels that doesn't quite look right with Bayside Blue. I think silver is just too bright. Although I am not sure these BBS wheels would look right in anthracite either.

I am not helping am I? :rolleyes:

I have to agree with Philip on the SE37s. They have grown on me lately...

If I personally had to upgrade wheels I would never go for a heavier set than the stock ones(9.2kgs). Some of those split BBS wheels weigh up to 12.5~13kgs...and to me that is just an expensive way to kill performance.:rolleyes:

SE37 on BB R34 (- 1kg from standard!) Uhmmm yummi!!

Ripspeed are officail suppliers of BBS, will also price match anyoffer and if anything goes wrong theres a halfords store everywhere, saves dealing with a mail order company as u never get the back up as its all through the post!

I'm a ripspeed dude at chester if anyone wants a good deal. Also 10% off package deals at the moment, and others may say ripspeed are pricey which they are on some things they are, but these places that say they do them cheaper always negate to add postage which can be upto £100 or £200 or some packages such as OZ to make it the same price as everywhere else if not more! :p

Just an info

Hi,

All the BBS wheels for Japanese market are made in Japanese underlicenced manufacturer.
So you'd better to check the availability in the UK.
For example, I cannot see "BBS RGR" in the UK BBS website.

Yours,
Shin

Cem,

My apologies if i am mistaken, but i thought you had some aftermarket wheels on your 34 ? I certainly remember seeing some on your car at a past grasshopper meet - as i liked the colour coding done on the rim.

On another note, the wheels you have "photoshopped" (or whatever) onto your car look very nice. Quite a 'race-look' wheel if you ask me.

I really like the standard 34 wheels, but think aftermarket wheels can totally transform the look of the car. Glens (as an example) looks the absolute dogs danglies with the wheels he has on there, and i believe improves the look of the car. But you have to choose the right wheels.......

Daz

PS how'd you manage to put "morph" different wheels on ? I've tried plenty of times in PSP 7, but have never managed to get it to look right !
