Don't bring your ricer crap from your Japenese rides to this brand please!!!

Don't compare how a wheel looks on a friggin CIVIC to a BMW thank you!!

Those wheels just look stupid. Thank you have a nice day. :thumbup:

wow i hope you know how ignorant you sound. japanese wheels are FAR better quality and look better then anything you can find from hamann, AC schnitzer, and schmid. try to be a little more open minded in this diverse world we live in.

Rays Eng. can make any Lug pattern, offset, what ever if you got the cash & time. The sweetest EURO+JDM I've seen was 1997 Porsche C4s on VOLK III 3pc rims, It had 18x8.5 front and 18x11 rear and i know Volk does not sell this of the shelf because I have the same rim.........

You can do whatever you want to your car. It's yours, knock yourself out

That being said, the fact that the wheels are from Japan has nothing to do with his comment. He was talking about the styling not the manufacturer.

It sounds to me like he's just annoyed and chose this thread to complain about people butchering BMWs with:

Don't get your hopes up too high on the Volk TA's because they are a limited production wheel and I believe they are done.

that is ridiculous. good wheels are good wheels. strong, lightweight wheels (volk? gram lights??) are good wheels. i think the majority of us would say that is a fine style, clean/simple, that honestly should hardly be associated with any brand OR COUNTRY. if you're heart set on calling anybody a "ricer" its the one who would spend way to much money on some shiny shit that weighs twice what the factory wheels weigh.



edit: is that robbie dyrdek drivin the murdered out uav?

wow this is a silly argument... anyone think BBS wheels are JDM? Well have you looked at the casting and where they are made these days? That's right, Japan. I think the most important thing with wheels is having wheels that fit with the car.
