I'm looking to get some new wheels for my G60 C. I'd like them to be 17's maybe 16's and have a nice clean modern look, nothing too old school, although a lot of the Borbet's and Brocks look good. I also like the look of a deep lip but I can easliy live without it. Oh and I'd like each wheel to be less than $300 each. I've done a little searching on Tire Rack and some other sites, but the only one's I like are the DTM Kruez 10's. And that will just take a little more money than I want to spend. Thanks for any suggestions, and of course pics would help a lot!

You can't go wrong with the timeless elegance of ABT or BBS wheels for a Corrado. Stay away from the brands and styles of the Japanese import scene. I'm not slamming Japanese cars by any means, but their look is theirs and ours is ours.

Shapes's wheels are pretty good looking. And yes you can't go wrong with the ABT or BBS wheels, the only problem is ABTs are boat anchor heavy and the BBS RC is way expensive. Here's a pic of my car and the current (not so hot) wheels to kick off some more ideas. Thanks for the input so far!

Re: (corradog60JET)

I just found out from Eric at Tire Rack that the 4 lug Borbet Type T is totally discontinued. I had actually decided to get those wheels, I was getting ready to order them when I found out NO MORE TYPE T's!
Maybe the ATS Panets will be a viable replacement, or the RH AD-Cuprads http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif . But I don't know if a 16 inch wheel is going to look to small? I can't decide I'm going to bed
