I just spent a serious load of cash having my car repainted, and it needs rims to compliment. The problem is, I've found the perfect wheel for me - 16x7 BBS RX 4x100s - and they're close to $300 each. I'm not about to spend over $1000 on rims knowing full well I'll have to buy 215/50R16s to put on, not to mention still being in recovery from the paintjob.

So, does anyone know of a wheel that looks a good bit like those? I'm not too hopeful, seeing as how those have the exact dimensions and (gasp!) bolt pattern I want. Better yet, are there any replica knockoffs that I can just slap BBS caps on (yeah, I'd do it)?

I mean, I've got to eat.

Yeah, that's still $320 for four tires.
Not especially high, but it adds up.

Those BBS rims are awesome...I would definitely get those but I do agree they are a bit on the expensive side

The best advice I have is to check out tirerack.com...im sure uve been there

Other than that check out ebay for BBS replicas

Well, I found some V-rated Kumhos for $88 each. I think that's as cheap as I'd go on tires, I absolutely hate my stupid Goodyears I bought when I got the car. eBay only has tiny or 5-lug RXes at the moment, so I guess I'll just have to hang out there a lot. Well, not like I wasn't already watching for some leather Recaros.

why not eat rice? it doesnt have msg like the ramen and you can do just as many things to it, plus its more nutritious and its cheaper.

Well I definitely like the BBSes better, but I guess that's why they're $320 each. I found the Formels at Intake One for $640 a set. That's certainly an option. Thanks, dude.
