You're a real big fan of posting a whole bunch of new threads, aren't you?

I'd recommend creating a build thread for your tC, and ask questions from there--rather than making a new thread just to ask a simple question/opinion.

That being said. I hate rims like those. I don't think they flow with the car at all. Unless you're going to bag the car I don't like BBSs at all.

^+1 I've said the same thing to a couple of new members.

Anyways, if you want to rock rims like those you really do need to be able to ride with your car at least 2" or more lower. Someone once said "low is a lifestyle"and I agree immensely!

I'm not building can't very well have one thread pages and pages long with one title and attract all the problems I'm trying to figure out or do but that's me. I think I've posted good threads for knowledge as well.

Now idk for some reason these rims speak to me ultimately I really really want my scion to look clean and kinda like luxury but not like a Mercedes just nice hard to explain really.

A build thread as in a thread for your car. Full of updates, pictures, and questions like these.

Just keeps the boards clean of questions that have already been answered.

the 5x100 lug pattern of the tC is common with some of the euro cars as well.

you're looking for BBS RS Reps, which are popular with the VW crowd (Jetta, GTI, etc.) search the euro forums or ebay for "BBS RS Style 5x100". if you're flexible on the size of the wheels (consider a 17" wheel, 19" would be pushing it when it comes to getting a good fitment and a comfortable ride), then you'll find a few options out there.

here's a 5x100 Classified section of a VW/Audi forum that I frequent. lots of ideas to play with if you browse around it:

5x100 Classifieds

the most important thing you want to know is hub sizes and offsets. you'll more than likely need to order either custom hub ring adapters or custom spacers that are hub centric to the tC and wheel centric to the hub of the wheels you want to run.

thanks for the help KoiDragon - I appreciate it. I honestly think the wheels look sick, i am thinking about getting some gold ones rather than silver.

I see a few tc's running similar wheels and I just think it looks sexy - stylish but I also see a lot of hate towards the looks which i dont understand but to each their own i guess. There are some other rims ill post up see what people think.

this is just my opinion, but i will always tell you to go with gold or bronze over silver if you're trying to decide between the two. i like both, but will take gold/bronze if given a choice... especially when it comes to a nice set of BBS wheels.
