Wheels for my Gti?
« on: April 13, 2006, 01:27:51 PM »
Well I'm getting new wheels aournd the end of the month, but am having trouble picking a set.  My budget isn't that big, only about $500-$600.  They need to be 17's since I still have my Avon summer tires from last year.

My favorite styles a the BBS LM's, BBS RC's, and the RS4 DTM's.  All of those are out of my price range.

Here are a few options.  What do you guys think?

Flik Justice


Flik Lex


ASA EM9

I think the Fliks are cheap and easy, but very common.
The ASA looks much nicer with that sort of BBS look.

I like the Fliks a lot...probably why they are common though, hehe

I like these myself


...man, I'm not helping anybody this week :roll:

To be helpful...I had Flik Artics on mine that I bought from Rob who bought from Dave, light, cheap and no complaints, nobody else seemed to have them so I don't think they're as common as some might think. Cole has the Justice's on his S4 and they look hot.

The ASA AR1's are nice but a little over my budget.  Flik make wheels that look like them, but I dont like the lip on them.  The only wheels I really like with a lip are the BBS LM's.

Also I don't really care how common a wheel is.  Shoot, I like the BBS RC's and I swear about half of the cars at every GTG I've been to have them.

Anyone else have experience with edgeracing.com and Flik wheels?

Thanks,

Kev

what about the Mille Miglia HT3 in 17x8. they are on sale at tire rack for $129/each (silver) or $99 for the anthracite ones? Those are nice and unique, i have only seen 1 other person with them locally.  these MM wheels will have a better finish quality than the fliks.

The ASA AR1 in silver is $189 and is a good quality wheel. I used the technology from BBS.

Those Flik Lex are HOT!  A friends dad bought them for his Midnight Blue S4, the antichrite ones from Edgeracing, they looked wonderful.  Lightweight too!  I am pretty sure he had a good experience with them.  He had gotten them on sale.  I also like the Flik Justice.  Those look mighty good.

Well, I bit the bullet this morning and ordered up a set of the Flik Justice's; I should get them in about a week.  As soon as the Avon's are mounted up I'll officially be in summer mode and get a few pics.  That'll make my wife happy since since she's been running my 15" snows for the last two months; she'll get the OEM Longbeaches back with Kumho ASX's.

IMO i would have saved up and probably gotten the OEM BBS RC's. They can be had for 1k with tires
