help me choose the wheels...

It will either be a set of 17" BBS Le Mans or BBS RX in the same size.

The car will have a 280hp subaru engine, 930 gear box, caron fiber fender hood and decklid+ running boards and also the doors will be carbon fiber ones from Remelle. The rest of the car will be black.

front wheel size would be 8" and 10" in the rear with front fenders 4cm's larger and 7cm's larger in the rear.

I'm a fan of the 5-spoke ... RX is my vote.

Whatever you choose, they will both look sexy. :agree:

i'm personally leaning towards the RX wheels also + they are a lot cheaper then the hard to find in 17") le mans.
I have a photoshop of my bug painted in black with those RX wheels and the look very good on the black (can't post the pic because it's to big)

that black super on page 7 looks nice but doesn't have really deep dishes. if I get the RX they'll have a way deeper lip in the rear than the one in my picture.(about 2" deeper)

Finally found a very nice set of 18" BBS Le Mans Porsche wheels I purchased on ebay last night.
8x18 in the front and 10x18 in the rear



will try to drive to Germany on Wednesday to pick them up.

I live in Sint-Truiden (Zuid-Limburg, kort bij Hasselt).
Ga je toevallig nu zondag ook naar de Kevermeeting in Hoesselt?
