Very nice. Same rims as the Guidmeister?

I had a set of Borbet Type A's on a previous car. Had like a 2" recession! I miss that three-dimensional look.

Only current quality rims that come to mind are Borbet's own Type T and E. Can you think of others?

Volk III's and IIII's, Racing Hart TypeC2's, M5's, M6's, almost the entire Work line, 5Zigen Heidfeld's, Gewalt Evolutions (if you can find them) and HRE's (DROOL) to name a few. Yes they are the same as Guiddy's but they're the Racing Hart's not the Lenso's.

Joon, do you know Work's web address?</font>
No but I wish I did......they are EXPENSIVE if you didn't already know. Maybe as much as HRE's? HRE's are AWESOME......they offer custom offsets too. Too bad they're like 800 PER rim.

HRE's rims ARE nice but they seem to cater more towards the european market and so their rims look good mainly on porsches and such. But I didn't realize how much they cost until I went to their web site. Sheesh.

You can actually view and buy Work Wheels from http://www.takakaira.com/ and go to their road wheels section I think.

Not always true.....I forget which company it was but someone made a 17" rims with a 2" lip......it depends on how you design the wheel. But you are correct in your reasoning...wider fenders help.

Yeah, my old car with the Type A Borbets had fender flares. Guess deep dish would look better on a G4. Curvy car.

Come to think of it, the Type A's always did look best on a 911--which is the car I originally saw them on.

Those are 17" and they might be for sale in the near future.

and just to re-iterate on Joon's rims...
THEY ARE FLAWLESS!!!

i had $$ to fling around or had a garage, i would definitely pick them up. Joon is, by far, the most anal person i know when it comes to maintenance of his car. i don't know him very well just yet, but so far, that's my opinion... *take it as a compliment, Joon* cuz i mean it like that.
