Really liking these wheels! I can see these powder coated in gun metal. There're available in a 17" too.

Thanks!! These are actually the original 002's which were discontinued in recent years. But the 002R's are still available, and look nicer in my opinion. lol I've thought about painting them eventually.

Thanks! I like those wheels as well. The wheels I was originally planning on getting were the ESM 009's. They look like the Borbet Type A's.

http://esmwheels.com/access/esm-009-sl-16-p-173.html

The Super Sports were the tires I was going to buy originally in 195/45/16 I believe. But they were almost $100 more a tire than tires in the 205/45/16 range... so I went with them instead. lol


I know some people hate on ESM because they're replicas technically. But ESM has made a name for themselves rather quickly, and I haven't heard any bad reviews about quality. A few of the locals have ESM's, and haven't had any issues with them. I'm planning on using these wheels through winter like I have with all of my other sets. I just routinely go out and clean them every other week. I bought these wheels because they were a great deal from a friend, who barely used them. But if I had the choice... 009's for sure! haha

Good luck with the suspension setup and 004's!

I did contemplate the 009.. as they do look similar to a Borbet… but the 004 is so similar to the BBS LM wheel that I just can't wait to have that setup on my ride! and being that BBS doesn't make a 4x108 that I've ever seen, ESM it is!!

Thanks for sharing your story!!
