Looking to get some 18s for my car. Sick of the 17s and don't really want to go with the standard 18s since most folk with a VXR have them.

I quite liked the kei racing force 10




However I'm more swaying towards.... BBS CK



Heres my car :




Ideas Please?

5 stud think offset is 47

I never actually checked if either come in the correct offset or that might actually help doh!

The BBS would look amazing, curved spokes would suit the curvy car. Expensive though!!?

They not 19s though

I did think about the 18s that look like my 17s but I wasn't too keen when I seen a photoshop of them on the car.

Nothing aftermarket other than BBS. Other whels look cheap.

I suggest black Arctic rims.

i have comp cxt's in white (copy of bbs as far as i can tell) on my blue car and they look great but fook me are they hard to clean! a good hour just to clean the wheels! theres so many angles and spokes and bits and bobs you end up taking ages to clean them. plus as they are designed as a motorsport wheel to cool the brakes and give good clearance they just suck dirt up in a day or 2 after being cleaned then theres the curbs you have to avoid!
id recomend the less spokes the better but light weight motorsport wheels are the only option.

not the best pics but you get the idea.....
