    Hey guys, is there anyone on this forum that has had BBS CKs fitted to their cars? If so, could you please post some pics?

    I found these 2, doesn't look too shabby. I have just been offered a set of these but in Hyper silver, what do you guys reckon?

    Look nice. I was considering those wheels at 1 point. Lose the black centre caps though.

    Stick with CHs, they look right for the S3. Should have been an OEM option.
    Cool wheels IMO.

    So I decided to give it a bash and to be honest I am in 2 minds:confused: both wheels look great. I havn't got rid of my CHs, they are tucked away nicely in my garage:wub: What do you guys think of these wheels???? Honest opinions :)

    Looks great but I think if they were in the flat silver colour, same as your CH's then It would be difficult to even spot the difference..

    I would say that I think the CH's are a more aggressive looking wheel that the CK's.. Id say stick with the CH's..

    I know what its like with wheels, always looking for something new, well I am anyways ha..

    Love both wheels, CHs are old wheels now but you just cant beat them for a not over the top look,

    You could always play with the CHs i have on last 2 sets :D

    They are made by Kamei. I purchased them from www.tmtuning.com

    *shock horror* Did you visit some small farm town in the middle of nowhere? :p There are plenty of Audis, BMWs, Merc and VWs to go by...

    Prefer the CHs. Look much more in keeping with the rest of the car.

    CKs look a bit showy

    Does anyone have ch/ck rims in 18's as oppose to 19's??? I love the look of both wheels but dont want to go up in size.

    Also all the cars seem lowered, how do they look with the standard ride height?

    CH's for me all the way, they just look so right on so many cars, especially in 19's. Trouble is, 'cos they look so good they are becoming so common (bit like the old-style RS4's that you see on pretty much all Audi's these days, even on A2's!!).

    CKs all the way!!! I guess the showy part is all in the paint. The design is much more updated and makes a 5 year old design look NOW!

    Where is the best place to get BBS CH's in 19" in the UK. I fancy a black set, what is the general cost of these items?
