    Right folks, there's no point to this, just a bit of fun on a Friday afternoon....

    There are a few threads on here currently about alloy wheels (most of them by me lately, sorry!), but out of curiosity what is your favourite alloy wheel design EVER?? :anbet:

    Whether it's aftermarket or an OEM design by any manufacturer it doesn't matter. So lets hear 'em.

    Cheers! :rock:

    The HRE P40 is an insanely good looking wheel. I've seen an S5 with some 20's and they're honestly the most beautiful wheel i've ever seen:

    BBS or OZ have rarely made a bad wheel. I still admire the original 3 piece Speedlines seen on the Porsche 911 (964 and 993) RS models.
    Agreed, alloys on my CSL (dished rear particulraly) were rather pleasing on the eye.

    The HRE P40's are (imo) the best wheel for Porsche.
    M3 CSL's are a favorite.
    CH's are nice.
    As are LM's.
    The Alfa "telephone dial" wheels on the 8C Competizione are pretty special too.
    Most Brabus 2-piece wheels look cool, especially the one's that are similar to an RS4's.
    Any Lambo wheels are pretty special.

    They are rediculously expensive. They are forged and CNC machined 6061 T6 ali!! In 20" I think they are about £5k!!
    They are damn nice though. Our Strom wheel is basically a cast version of the HRE in 19", but no A3 fitment only A4, A5, A6 & A8. Well you could fit they but you would be looking at arch mods etc.

    This is a bit old school, but I always loved the Momo Arrows (5-stud fitment). Still look great today IMO!

    Personally I think BBS RS's are the best ever alloy design. Think God designed them himself :)

    Totally stunning split rim that still looks stunning after being about for years.

    Its got to be a BBS wheel design, RM, RS, LM etc etc..

    Hard to choose but the classic BBS design is the best! Especially for the german cars..

    I think the BBS RS has to be on something like this.
    Some NEW 16" BBS RS I found a few months ago, could not leave them in the box.....
