What do you think of these wheels?

Do you guys think these are too JDM for a 930? I like the green ones on the white contrast of the body, but there's other options as well...

I apologize for the small pic, enlarge the screen on your comp to see it better :-)

I personally love them. Are those TE37's?

I think the green/white (Midori look) was always pretty hot. German's look just as good in my opinion. Rauh-Welt knows how to pull off some JDM Germans.

(Except the extra banana wing on top of the RWB cars is a little ricey to me)

Do you have a source for these wheels, or just found the pic and like the look? I'd love to find some '37's for my ride.

Maybe with some matching accent color some where it would work. Otherwise, I like the wheel.

I'm not a fan of many aftermarket wheels on 930s, I honestly think fuches are just perfect but I think they look pretty sweet, black would be my choice though, black wheels white car looks great IMO

These are Rota Grids - look exactly the same as the te37's and exponentially cheaper. Largest diameter pattern they make them in is 5x114.3 though. Could have them filled and re-drilled for not too much. Had a friend photoshop the picture for me. Was thinking a set of staggered 18x10 and 17x9 if i could make the offsets fit.

78SC - Thanks for the link, i forgot those pics were on there.

I was expecting a little flack for posting about rotas on a 930.

To be honest, I've never heard of any issues with them. I have a set on my daily driven corolla and mine have taken a beating.

I like them, despite being Japanese it is one of those styles that seems to work on everything.
