OMG I would give anything for these!!

I've been looking at all different kinds of wheels, 17's 18's, six spoke, one piece, two piece, polished lip, reverse barrel, stepped lip, mesh style, volk, grams lights, AME, Work, Advan, everything. I really wanted my wheels to be the corner stone, or the main feature of my car. A lot of people where I live roll on generic wheels, so I want something that's authentic and eye catching. I found this set of wheels on e-bay a couple months ago, and damn I've just been watching them. Hoping no one buys them before me. But it seems like it's going to be a while before I can seriously afford them. It's a great price, I just don't have the money. The best part is that this wheel meets EVERY one of my criteria for what I'm looking for: two piece, gold, mesh style, 17inch, reverse barrel, polished lip, volk/jdm wheel, and a good price..... maybe they'll still be for sale when I get the cash.

It's a set of Volk GT-A's 17x7 4x100 Gold with polished lip.
Another crazy thing, is that Volk has since discontinued them. Kinda makes me want them even more.

I also found a picture on the net of them (Although these are five lug):

Re: OMG I would give anything for these!!

My theory is light & simple....wheels are made to contact the road & are gonna get beat up no matter how nice you drive....not to mention have you ever been to a track day! Those are probably ridiciously priced......

16inch rota's or something simple but good looking....nough said....they do look good though!

yeah I know exactly what you mean, I keep bouncing back and fourth between if I want to get a nice set of volks like that, or just get something less expensive and beat the hell out of them.

I just want to be happy with what I have, I don't want to say to someone "those are my cheap beater wheels."

I wish there was a mid range wheel. Seems like there's just really cheap-o kinda rims, then there's the rays and such, with a huge gap inbetween. That what It feels like to me at least.

Re: OMG I would give anything for these!!

Well Rotas seem to be the only good option. Good price, good fit/finish, & they reliable..........

I have a set of repilca Work Emotion wheels...I picked up from Truehonda a couple of years ago. Rota seems to have alot of wheels very similiar to mine!

Re: OMG I would give anything for these!!

I feel that the only problem with buying something like rota's is the perspective. Whenever I talk to someone that owns a set of rotas or something else like that I ask them what kind of wheels are those and they say "...these are just rotas..." or whatever. It's like they're not proud of owning them. I just want to be proud to own a set of wheels I want.

I want to buy wheels because I want them, not just because I can afford them.

After a little bit of saving, I'll be able to afford more.

Re: OMG I would give anything for these!!

^ I Think it's easy to be distracted by seeing a set of wheels which are also nice, but not the ones you originally set out to get. When you see the other ones you think damn I could have those now, instead of the other ones later. It's hard to save money when you always see nice parts!
