    Default I cannot, for the life of me, find wheels that I like. Help a dude out *BMW 2002*

    What's up guys, not sure if I should post this up in here but it seems to be the best place.

    I'm going crazy trying to find a set of wheels that I want for my 1973 BMW 2002 project. I want something either 15" or 16", don't want run-of-the-mill BBS RM/RS, no "rare, 3-piece, jdm, whatever" wheels catch my eye. It's getting to the point where the only wheels that interest me are fake low offset wheels (XXR, Rota, Stance, etc). I'd like to keep it at least somewhat classy.

    Here is the car in question. It will be very low. Would really prefer to stay with 4x100, adapters would be a pain on this car. I'm doing custom fender flares so width/offset is flexible. You guys got any recommendations? Looking to spend under $1500 for wheels.

    i wouldn't go for modern wheels, but there is wheels like Schmidt TH-line, Modern-line and Retro-line that would look good, as for old cars old style wheels..

    You can easily find a set of 15 or 16" RSs at that price and in your bolt pattern and have money left over to clean them up a bit.

    He doesn't want rs/rm. I would look into used schmidts. I don't remember pricing on images but iirc they are out of his price range.

    thanks for all the replies guys. As for the RS/RM, I would chose RM's over RS', and I actually considered buying those for awhile and building them how I want. That's an option, I would just kind of prefer something a little more unique as I just see them EVERYWHERE now. TH-Lines are too pricey for me and Modern Lines just don't really do it for me. I'm being super picky about this. I kind of considered getting some crazy wide/low offset smoothie/baby moons, but can't find any in 4x100 and I guess they're sketchy to redrill. I've seriously spent hours researching and haven't been excited on anything yet I'll have to look into Image wheels though, they seem pretty cool.

    i have a set of '70s volk 3 piece forged magnesium wheels. 14x7.5, and are mid refurb, have been slowly refurbishing for the past year or two.

    i have nothing to put them on at the moment, and said i would never sell them, as they are one of the only sets in north america, but would consider parting with them for the right price/ I think they might look sick on the 2002\

    I really wish there were more concave wheels in 15" and 16" sizes. Pretty much all I can find are XXR 527's and I really like them actually but want to find something a little more unique.
