Did I say Antera? Oops, I meant AT Riva. Thanks for the correction Tony.

Andrew...not quite what I meant...I meant using 2 or 3 piece wheels like Chucks or Marks and painting the centers red and having the polished aluminum rim and hardware nice and shiney. The idea doesn't work on your 1 piece.

HOWEVER!!!.............what WOULD look good on your wheels, is one of the following:
-paint the wheel completely red with black hardware
-paint the centers black with a red rim
-paint the whole wheel black with the outer rim face/lip red!

I may remove the center spokes and have them powder coated black.
Tony, I like!

Keith-
I've never been one for color matched rims, except on black cars. After seeing how hideous my car would look with red spokes, I'm quite certain that only a silver/polished look will work for me. But your suggestion may serve others well. (Chaad, you listening?)

It’s all personal taste of course, but I prefer all of these "center painted" wheels, in their original color. Especially the 3.6 T’s.

I think painting them body color takes from their looks and appeal.

There is a local red S4 5 speed with the complete set and they are very unique looking (in a good way)

Aren't TT Hollow Spokes supposed to act like a fan cooling the brakes?
From my point of view this would add to the wheels value...piece of German ingenuity

Nothing special, no one else has posted pics of these yet. Got mine really cheap with great tires! I felt it was a great upgrade from the phone dials.

Jim, are those GT3's 18's or 19's. Those look real nice.

I'm running the SSR GT3's on my E55 and they have proven to be an extremely tough wheel. I've hit some huge potholes that I thought would have dented the rims but they remain unscathed so far.

Thanks for the compliments, but these are not RH wheels, although they look like them.

According to the German title, the fronts are BBS-RS 080, 9" x 17". Rears are BBS-RS 083, 13" x 17".

I restored these wheels last year, they suffered years of corrosion and neglect by the P.O.'s. They have to be at least 10 - 13 yrs old. But they are still straight and cleaned up beautifully. The original rim bolts had the BBS logo and i.d. marks on them (which I replaced). The wheels where probably added by Kerscher Tuning after Koenig did their work..., but its hard to tell.
