Well, the price is "very nice", too:

The 4 wheels = 7566.17 EUR (Europe)= 10.835,51 $

At that price I will pass and look for some cheaper and lightweight 18" wheels.

I donīt think stylinexpat means that he does not like the wheels and likes some cheaper ones better (so its not taste that he argues), it is price and weight that he is talking about. I personally do love those wheels but I pass simply because of weight (scratch that, they are as light or lighter than mine, lol), so one can also seek performance instead of looks at a lower price without it being a taste issue. I might even get those. Would have to see if they are made in the size I need.

Those look fantastic. The price is just killing them for me though.
Anymore pics of the car? What size tires? Suspension?

Are your RD sport wheels really 16 lbs? That is extremely light.

Not quit, my bad, front wheels are 19x9 (a tad wider) and are 18.3 lbs and rear are 19x11 and weigh almost 19.2 lbs. So not that light but close enough for sure. Donīt know if these BBS are made in 11" rears, would have to see. For sure, these are the best looking wheels!

Is it an IND car? Those are the only wheels I'd rather have over my RAC wheels.
I LOVE how long the spokes look and how they start from the center-cap because the bolts are between the spokes.
