Time for some new shoes!

So I still have about a week before I pull the trigger so this may change if I do much more browsing but I have 2 sets of rims and 2 color options I'm considering.

I thought I wanted the carbon graphite but now I'm thinking the brushed aluminum will pop more with the blue pearl. I'm also considering wrapping the car.

I have had my mind made up for awhile on the VF-103 but then I saw the VF-107 and really like the sharp cuts.

Any feedback, flames, or suggestions are welcome. And Go!

I've had 2 people say they are too busy and like the 103's more. Only images I can find with the 107's are SUVs. I really dig that switchblade feel tho.

Might just be me, mate, but I think they look gorgeous!

Also, they look very similar to the new 2017 A5 Black Edition alloys, which are stunning btw!

I've attached a pic so you can see for yourself.

You definitely made me disregard those nay sayers a little more. What color do you like? I thought the brushed would pop more with the pearl blue but I really like the graphite. I'm also really considering wrapping with that new blue.

Have you taken my wish list and started to tick things off, Mike??

Firstly, that colour is FREAKING AMAZING! 100% go for the wrap! One of my favourite colours. I'm sure as it's a new colour, it may even give the illusion that the car is newer. Such a nice colour!

Secondly, with that colour, I would say 100% go brushed instead of graphite. Or even go gloss black? I just think brushed suits the colour a million times more than graphite.

What are you feeling, mate? What's your gut saying?

At first I really wanted the first image. Then I thought those rims but brushed for a better look with the cars paint. Then as I was getting my sizes I saw the second set and though they were much more unique. Both sets would look good but since I have a little time before pulling the trigger I thought I would take a poll and get my post count higher.i think I'm gonna keep the chrome accents on the car so not really feeling the black

Brushed titanium, if you're sticking with the deep blue, Mike.

I have an opinion.

I prefer the colour and rims you already have.

The others are trying too hard.

You could then invest the money you save in something rewarding.....like beer, or lapdances......

Thanks all. Have a email in with a rep who is helping to get the military discount. Vorsteiner doesn't have the 107's listed for the B8 5's but we'll see. I'll have at least one more image poll before I order. I like the slightly darker look of the Gunmetal, and then there is the Patina Bronze I'm kinda eyeing.

Sorry about that. Brushed titanium would look great. This is the first poll I have elected to participate in and I blew it. Please accept my apology.

Just as important as the look is the construction of the wheel. Is it one piece construction, is is cast is it aluminum what is the ability to get a replacement if the wheel becomes damaged or BENT which often is the case with less expensive wheels-(not that I'm suggesting these are such) so in most cases the wiser choice is the more common wheels that have a tried and true reputation. that being said what manufacturer are these?

These are Vorsteiner. Going with the flow forged instead of the costly one piece.
