    So I know within the context of this thread, CCBs stand for carbon ceramic brakes.. but for HRoi, I'm drawing a blank.

    Cock cuddling buttocks?

    If you don't have CCBs or electric three phase regen brakes, you might as well prepare for trick-or-treating and wasting your time washing the wheels on weekends.

    Yep, I'm going to need to wash my wheels again this weekend after two weeks of driving.

    I should just buy some Sonax and a powerwasher to expedite the process.

    Same with the K900, I would say. I think they both try to compare favorably to American cars and the Toyota and Honda. I mean, honestly, I think they're priced too low to compete with the luxury brands because I doubt many people cross-shopping BMW, Audi, and MB would even step into a Kia dealer.

    @sir reveller. Seriously though. Imho. The best looking wheels right now are Wedsport Sa-15r. In Black clear.

    (Like them so much i bought a set) and the new SSR's/Enkei's in black.

    On a car with a nice color. Like yours. Black wheels make the color "pop".

    Dang. Might go look at some wheels now. . .

    Really? On a Subaru maybe, but not on an A4 cab.



    "Shitty" cars have gotten so much better over the last decade. I really like the new Renault Clio/Twingo's, which was cars I hated years ago.

    They are too JDM for an Audi.

    Wheels can't be "too jdm" or "too euro".
    Put any wheels on any car if you like it. :)

    BBS being a prime example.

    Of course they can. They have to be homogenous with the cars design, so some wheels fit the design of the car others don't.

    That's the point they are not shitty anymore. The old Sonata was horrible, but the quality jumps they are doing are amazing.

    This makes no sense at all.

    Simply put. Some wheels look good on a car. Some don't. Regardless of anyones jdm/eudm bias.

    It all comes down to color, and design accents. Ie: an 18 inch wheel, slightly concave, spoked, with a nod to euro touring car style. Color is a preference. Though the same wheel in a metallic gray would still look nice.

    You can hate my preferences. But drawing a line between continents over wheels is ridiculous.

    Its far deeper than that everything is designed with a certain esthetic in mind. Weds are designed for primarily asian cars and sooth the their design language, when you put them on a bonestock Audi they look out of place. There is a reason why when you google only Mazda, Subaru, Mitsubishi etc. comes up.

    If all wheels were created equally there would be no reason for time attack, JDM, OEM Plus, Euro Mod etc. etc. or multiple manufactures.


    There is a reason why sites like Barryboys exists.

    Those Enkeis look awesome. Put some decent brakes behind them and have fun.
