I'm just looking at the overall style (spokes wise). I am a fan of the 5 spoke. Multi spoke seems to be more of a car style not SUV style. I appreciate all the input!

FYI-the less and thinner the spokes the more visible the rotors and calipers. 87s are a good balance unless you want more visibility.

I actually like the Vossen CV1 maybe in matte black.

Wait ... Tom, don't you have Vossen CV3s?! Those ARE pretty nice too.

Bnagy4.8, I would find 5 spokes that don't taper too small at the ends (like those in your poll). The Vossen CV3s are nicer I think.

Are you only looking aftermarket and not OE? Are these examples that you posted coming in a staggered setup with stock offsets and widths?

I like the TSW's in black, but only if they are staggered.

Do you have 168's now, or what wheels do you currently have?

I am looking at staggered rims with stock off sets, the only difference is the staggered is 8.5" front 10.5" back or 9" front 10.5" back.

as for OE I would love OE but it is really expensive. I just overall want really nice complimenting wheels for the right price or the best bang for the buck so anything I see will help me with my decision.

As of yet though I had an update on my engine being blown at the dealership so its not looking good on wheels.

Definitely do not do 8.5" in the front, I'm wary of 9" in the front too.


If you want OE look without OE price, check out this sellers listings on ebay. I bought a set of 168's from this exact guy with Toyo Proxes ST2 tires for 1850 shipped over the summer, phenomenally impressed with the quality and love the wheels for the price. Unless there were huge defects I'm not spending double the price to say I bought my wheels at the dealer. Seller is "wheel tech tuning" and other members here have bought from him and been pleased. He sells 214s and the X5M wheels as well, in Matte Black, Gloss Black, or Silver. I showed you a listing for the Toyo tires but he sells Continental DWS for more, or a budget brand tire for less. Hope that helps.

And I am following your engine thread as well I know you have bigger fish to fry, just thought I'd help.
