Sparco wheels?

Has anyone had any experience with sparco wheels? I really like the design of the 18" "pistas" and the prices don't seem too bad. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

From my experience around the internet, and the ghetto, Sparco wheels generally belong on Japanese cars.

Hey man go for it! You can cover up the sparco lettering with BMW logos. Anything is better than overplayed CSL reps. I commend you for being different

That's another main reason why I want them, Just to be different. If I do get them I haven't decided if I want the bimmer roundels on them or just keep the sparco ones.

Do it, they are great wheels. I had racing harts on my m3, and love them.

Look up BMW style 32. Same thing. Just for comparison purposes, or maybe even to buy. I run Style 32's in the winter

Thanks for the info, if I can find a set locally for sale I might just go with those. If not though, I'll just go with the sparcos.

I thought he meant a sparco steering wheel.
That'd be better

Nah, don't want that, I like having buttons and such on my wheel. Plus it has an airbag for safety.

I guess I should've been more specific with the title.
