Am beginning to think about my new wheels a bit more now (wiping most of the thread off my tyres at Mondello played a lartge part in this)

Am still undecided on whether to go for the Velocity CSL reps or the BBS Ch's - both will actually work out similarly priced once shipped.

Any thoughts?

I'm not 100% sure about the Velocity CSL reps...I can't decide whether they look good or not.
The BBS CH's are nice but lack a dish. For the same money you'll get a dished rim which will really improve the rear stance of the car.

Sayin that the ch's look shit hot here:

If you are decididing between the CSL reps or the BBS Ch's go for the Ch's tasty rim and look the business are you still going for 19's?? BBS Lm's look smaller than they are because of the split rim. Have you any other choices and it all depends on what look you want Ken probably the agressive look if that twin Ben is going to get hold of the keys

Only other wheel I think I'd go for would be the ACS Type III's!! Want to go for 19's alright. After looking at the two cars I posted above, the CH's would be my preference at the moment too! Will probably have to wait till January though

If you're feeling flush, you can go with wheels.ie, you'll pay a fortune for them though. I'm looking in Germany for mine - €2100 for 19's with Dunlop SP9000 tyres - the tyres alone would cost about €1400 over here. Its €150 to ship too...

I know that Antan in Ballymount are official importers of BBS alloys but don't know about their prices have a look at their website at www.antan.ie

Don't think they'd match the German or UK prices though - the LM wheels alone are €4K here, €4K in the UK complete with Toyo Proxies...
