    Anyone tried these? I think I finally found a wheel I like.

    The Fikse profil 5.

    Anyone able to photoshop these onto a black 550? I am thinking of the 19", and can't decide on whether an anthracite wheel is a good thing, or if I should stick with the more polished look?

    Robb,

    That is SW's car. I saw it wo years back before I ever got my black 550. His is spectacular looking, but I can't help but wonder if the chrome wheels are too much. Plus my car is always dirty.

    Grazie for the picture, though.

    If anything, the wheels detract from the car; they sure don't enhance it.

    I think the aftermarket wheels on the black 550 contribute to it looking more like a bmw 850... gasp..

    But hope the photos help your selection.

    fikses main advantage is they are light - at least compared to the boat anchors on my GT2's... i dont know if your 550 wheels are heavy, but i put fikses on my gt2 to save the 34# [4 wheels] weight but always considered them less attractive and more Bling than the stock wheels, and tend that way on your car as well... just IMHO, tho'
