team dynamics wheels are very hard to come by. most of the models have been discontinued. i was going to get pro race 1's, or pro race 3's, but no luck... pro race 2's and pro race comp look like possibles, but im having problems tracking them down... :(

These things can't be as rare as

rocking horse poo :confused: :eek:

Here's some I found whilst trawling around the net.


These are all BK Racing wheels (www.topgear.co.uk

If you find any more BLACK rims, 16-17 inch, please post them here.

Cheers

You could of course get a second hand set of any design of wheel and get them refurbished powder coated in black (See foto). Thats an opton i was considering at one time!

Thought about it

Yeh its mint, got the pics off ebay wen it was on auction!
But "just" powder coating the S spoke wheels still means that I'll have a set of very heavy rims :(

I'm looking for light weight summer/track day wheels that will allow my S to handle like it was designed to :cool:

What I may do is get a set of rims and then have them powder coated - anyone got an idea of the likely cost?

Hi.. have a similar thing myself. had decided which Black 17's to get when Team Dynamics decided to discontinue most of its matt black range - but they still do have the Pro Race 1 and found them for £595 with Kumho's or about £40 extra for upgarde to Yokohamas.. not sure about other upgarde but they did more or less most brands.

Thanks for this - these guys seem to be quoting about £100 cheaper than performwheels.co.uk on the Kei Racing Force 8 in hyper black.
Now I just need to find out how much they weigh.

Cheers

Very nice

This is why I like black rims - makes it hard to see the wheel itself - makes the car look as though it is floating :cool:

You don't happen to have a close up of the wheel do you?

Cheers

Oh and you may want to photoshop out your number plate ;)
