It looks like a replica of d current set of rims that come on the beemers these days mostly on the 7 series

Good choice ! Those rims look nice. Though the 7 series is coming with different rims..they are many more spokes which do not look as good as this does. I personally would like my 17" alloys (Enkies) they would look nice too IMHO.

Looking forward to the complete look of the car

All the best & hope your project is on the road BEFORE the new year !




Cheers

I would suggest some nice deep dish wheels like:

hey guys thanks for the suggestions would want to get deep dish alloys but im always told that its hard to find 120 pcd rims so this limits my options but this time surely would get some nice hot alloys . personally i would also prefer deep dish but i dont want 'em to be too flashy would like a subtle design and something that suites the overall look of the car

Take a serious look at the one's on my Octavia. 17" Enkei's - they should look nice !

aren't those BBS RS rims? IMO BBS or OZ would be your best bet. At least the way I like it, is if the car's German, the rims should be European as well

Superlaggeras in carbon finish would look awesome on your white ride...

ricky sir , i know 5 days to go did call arush yesterday and he was assuring me that he is going to stick to this promise of his and give me the car this year....so got my hopes up this time. Haven't heard the engine tho myself but he told me that it has started and only the transmissions being put together and then he is going to drive the the to my house to deliver it to me for the run in that is.... so i'm just counting the days.

I sure hope so mate!! can't wait to see it back in action after such a long time! I think you should stick to the 18s, last i rode in it, the ride comfort wasn't hampered neither was the performance. Now that you are getting a powerhouse, 18s make sense!
