  • New Wheels and BFG Tires (Riken=BBS Style Basket weaves)

    Chivas and I worked out a deal for his 16x7.5 Rikens early this morning.

    As soon as I got them I hit them up with some polish and black rattle canned the centers. A proper refinishing is in order, and will be done at a later date.


    How they look 8 hours after pickup.

    Look perfect and especially on your car! I thought about those wheels also when they were up for sale. Look just as good as I thought they would. Silver rims really pop with the dark centers. Now I am jealous.

      Nice old skool wheel. I had these back in the 80's on my VW's.

            Hey man, do you know the offset on the wheels?

              How do you like the ride quality on city streets? Is it harsh?

                Looks good Matt!

                Are the lips polished?

                  Yes and yes.

                  The wheels need a repolish bad.

                  The suspension is bone jarring on the crap NY Metro roads but it's magic at the track. Worth the trade off to me.

                    Mine is not so bad on a standard E30, guess I'm so used to the stiff ride suspensions but think its smooth to an extent.

                      I always liked those classic Rikens. Looking good with the Lachsilber.

                              Well at least they are 3000 miles away from eachother. Tell ya what, you can have west of the Missisippi and I'll take everything east. Deal?
