You probably should go with something deep dish. the black bulging pattern sticking over the small dish doesn't look good. I see alot of hondas and acuras with this style. Nothing wrong with honda or acura but the rim looks like it belongs on a japanese car. But if you like that's what matters.

@ Gerry,

http://wheeldynamics.net/

Many board member have used Wheel Dynamics and none of us have had anything to complain about.

Gerry how are you wheels holding up with all the auto-x events?

Thanks, Robert!

Dude the wheels are doing pretty good after 4 AX with it and so easy to clean, I LOVE IT...but the Hankook tires that goes with it....blah...too loud in the freeway but sticky enough at AX....I can't wait to get a new set of tires and if I do, I'm going back to Kumho's

These caught my attention as well due to their final selling price. I checked out the seller's feedback and one guy who bought them for his Porsche said that they were not deep dish at all, not giving you a staggered look. They are not actual BSAs, the offsets are incorrect. A couple weeks back another eBay seller (porsche_panorama, or something like that) was selling a similar set of wheels but were actual deep dish. They looked alot better and had different offsets than these (48/40), spacers would not be required. He sells them for $795. Same size 18x8 & 18x10 and weigh 22/26lbs. I can dig up his email if you'd like.

I've seen these on a Yellow boxster from a guy in LA.

They look good. I have the LeMans black ones someone showed earlier. They are hub-centric, they look good, but all of those spokes are hard to keep clean.

Looking for somethng new and different?

I'm looking at getting these 5 star rims next. No one has these on our forum...yet. They are made by MODA. I like the way they look in black, but I'm not crazy about the logo being stamped on one of the spokes, but I think I could live with it. Here they are in black on my car. Found them at Tirerack.

I looked into those prior to buying my 19s. I wasn't sure if a Porsche center cap could fit and ultimately wanted wheels with deep lips. I love the red coloring on the calipers!

Those do have a deep lip. The rears are 18x10! or 19x10! You can't get any deeper than that. The lip is something like 3-4 inches. Same as Miros brand.

BSA wheels, I looked into buying some off ebay a while back. I couldn't find any dealer for them in the US except WheelMax which put me on hold for 20 minutes and I hung up. No support as far as I'm concerned and when emailing the actual company, I got no response. The only information I was ever able to get was off their website. I decided against them based on if something were to happen to one rim, I'd have 3 good one's and no way to contact anyone about a replacement.

Moda, those are the wheels I'm buying and having them painted flat black and leaving the lip polished. Moda is made by BBS and those wheels are pretty inexpensive for a quality wheel.
