OK I went to a local used rim shop today to pickup some BBS rims however they had already been sold. So the owner and I talked it over since he was supposed to hold onto them until I came back he asked me if I wanted to look at some others he had and he'd cut me a deal on them. Well the chrome ones are $360 a set and they are 17's in the correct offset and hole pattern. The other three spoke rims I hated so let's not talk about them. Next was the ones in the plastic. They are brand new 17's and he offered to sell them to me for $320 for the set. I ended up buying some OZ 17 inch rims for $270 from him. He sold them to me at that because the one rims was missing the center cap which I picked up on the way home at another shop called JMS. Now I'm considering the new rims or waiting and hoping he gets some BBS rims in again or maybe some OZ's in the correct hole pattern and offset. Any opinions?

What car are they going to be fit on?

I guess it depends on if the style fits the car. But IMO BBS style fits most of the car well.

The first ones look really nice, especially since they are NOT chrome. Are they the correct offset (50-55mm)? The second two, well....I could picture then on an IROC, but NOT on a Subaru.
