      Compomotive MO's 17x7.5 semi-gloss black and yes I know my car looks really beat but you pretty much get the idea

      Lol...maybe I should go on Honda Tech and tell them to jump off the Volks/Work wheels bandwagon and get some Schmidts.

      too late ...

      seriously, that del slo is ****ing hot guys.
      If I wasn't driving a rado it would be a type R or an ek hatch.

      There are two wheels I actually find that suit the corrado very well beside the stock speedlines.
      One being BBS RX in 16" fashion.

      and Borbet type C

      Ive played with dubmodder one too many times to love both of these wheels.

      I'm tempted to get a set of Borbet type FS since they're so cheap and not bad looking to boot. The only question is, do I get the 16" or 17" version?

    8. 07-12-2008 10:04 AM #83
      oh and quick question, does anybody know where I get a 16 inch Borbet Type C set.

      Most of the wheels that are being posted require some type of work to make them look right. The highly coveted 17" LM only comes in a with of 7" so you need spacers to bring them out.
      With that said I nominate the Oettinger Brand with the RE and RZ

      i'm partial to these wheels too! my bro's rado!

      Once I get some more moneys... I'm throwing Schmidt Space Lines... I don't care what people think either, I like Phone Dials, but i'm not going that route since I don't want adapters.

      Or maybe VN Lines....

      I'm not feeling Gotti's.

      I think mine are fitting, but they have made me realize 16"s aren't the perfect diameter though. 17"s are the perfect fit.

      Carbon fiber ME2.2lt Mkl TT coming soon...

      I totally agree w/ the OP. I haven't seen anything that looks better than speedlines on a lowered Corrado. Too many spokes, bullets, bolts, gold, etc. going on w/ alot of these wheels. Doesn't look right on an early 90's german sport coupe IMO.
      I couldn't find anything I loved looks wise so I went the performance, price, and comfort route. Rota Slipstreams 15" x 7" in silver. $120 each shipped and 11.8lbs.
      I think they look ok too. Simple five spoke, similar to a stock speedline. Just lighter [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      DelSol's are weak sauce but that's actually sick.

      Sorry if I sound like an as$ (not my intent) but if you don't care why people think, then why must you share every single little plan that you come up with? Get whatever you like, enjoy them and then post up some pictures for people to see what they look like with that color/setup.
