    What brand of wheels are these ??

    This B.A.D. replica is listed on eBay and I was wondering who makes those sharp looking wheels (rims) and what brand they are....The owner does not know but he thinks they are made in Belgium??

    BTW, this is one of the BEST F355 replicas I have seen for an MR2 platform (not to be confused with the Fiero-based F355 replicas).

    Here's the wheels and replica:

    Hey VK,

    I could swear I saw those wheels on Tirerack or one of the online places. They look so familiar. I was originally looking for a spare set of wheels for my BMW for the Winter so I don't mess up the 18's. I was looking for a 5-spoke / split spoke wheel (Which I think looks good on a 5 series) and could swear I looked at those.

    I'll see if I can retrace my steps and track them down. The only thing that looks different is (I could swear) I saw them in a Chrome Finish (which I don't like) not aluminum like those. They are nice looking wheels.

    I love the interior of that car too.

    They are ATS wheels, the model is named Comet. Look at ats-wheels.com for sizes. It's a cheap wheel about 146 euro for a 17" wheel and about 217 euro for the 19"

    Thanks for the info....

    ATS wheels were used in some Porsche cars in the 80s especially on the 924 Turbo....TireRack doesn't carry ATS wheels but I'm hoping some others might...

    Correct!

    Thanks Brian

    I'm affraid those particular wheels (ATS Comet) are not widely available in the US since I can't find them in many places on Google....Oh well, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it but they sure look sharp especially on that F355 replica.
