Which 17inch rims to buy

Just looking to buy some 7.5 x 17 inch rims for the exclusive and was interested in people thoughts on designs

Wanted something that looked vaguely like the standard Ronals, so drawn to 5 spoke type rims like the Bola B10 in gunmetal, or the Dare F5 in black.

Any thoughts of what looks good on a Monaco Blue exclusive?

Thanks

I know what you mean the Bolas look a bit FWD. I was thinking fake split rims would suit an 80’s car😃.

Dare do a multispoke one that looks like an 80’s BBS rim but I remember them being a pain to clean and then the corrosion flaking all the powder coat off.

The Dare F5’s are available in a ET35 offset which will be better fit

Think the Dare would look good, but I would be having them fully painted tbh. 
 

ROTA do one that’s somewhere between the DARE and the BOLA that was on my consideration list when I choosing new ones for the Silver Coupe

Mine are the Rota OSR model on the Cav, I went for the 5 spoke look.

Quite like the idea of those modded fins, but they are not cheap! £200 a wheel plus set of bmw donor rims and the Ronals 

I have thought about strength, but I think they should be good as the Alloy quality of the OEM rims is very good to start with

I'm off to see him on Thurs.

I have been to his workshop  and seen how they are done. 

He even did some and gave to a banger racer to test and he couldn't  break them.

 

He did these aswell obviously bthe white ones are the finished  pic

Had a look at Rotas website and they do some nice styles, even ones like the old ATS. I think the GTR in gunmetal look good but they do have holes for 2 different PCDs

Do you know what make Nicks rims are Lewis?

Not sure I fancy modifying my Ronals, plus I wanted 17inch rims as a 225/35x17 is virtually the same diameter and circumference of the 195/60x14 give or take a millimetre so no speedo calibration issues.
