I've been looking for hours but can't seem to find a picture of a merc silver BA with 20" Petrol Octane rims. I'm thinking of getting them for my car and really want to know how they'll suit.

If anyone can find some pictures of it I will be super happy with you and maybe send you a mars bar in the mail or something?

I reckon theyll look good, the only problem being is coz they are such an open big size wheel, if you have stock brakes it'll make them look tiny. Otherwise imo they should look pretty hot

Yeah didn't think about brakes. Guess they could always use an upgrade haha.

I think they'll look hot, maybe I'll get one of the choppers to do a pic for me.

they look similar to a heap of other 5 spoke rims in that style. A similar one ive found is RJR Tremor, might have better luck finding one on a silver BA to get an idea......... if you find it, i'll blow them up to 20" to give you an idea?

Yeah similiar style. Those rims are really nice actually. I'm really paranoid about spending a few grand on wheels and not being 100% happy with them lol. Hence why I want to see RL photo. I had a crack at a chop and got this (couldn't get them to blend very well so it looks really fake):

Speedy emvys are another similar rim. I've got them on my auwith gold spokes, but you can get them in gun metal and full chrome as well
