162 rim abuse

I was Googling for some 162 style rim sales and came across this crime against humanity.

Honda Odyssey with BMW rims. Horrible. Especially since I want some 162's

Probably. It does look like a stock photo and the wheels have the exact same orientation. Even still,

The picture itself is a fail.

But it doesn't look half bad.

LOL. Actually, the regular wheels for the Ody Touring (below) aren't bad looking. The 162s look fine on it, too.

I'm sure the few people that have real BBS wheels probably feel the same about everyone on this forum that gets the reps of those styles. Wheels don't look too bad here though.

I think 161 is much better than 162 even though it's only 17".

Nah, they don't spin, so they'd be no good for Civics.

I love it. IMO, the 162s look great on almost any vehicle. I wonder what they would look like on a Honda Fit or Toyota Prius?

I have one of those Ody's. I'd put 162's on mine if I could. The PAX runflats on the Ody suck so bad it's insane. 22k miles and I have bare shoulders but about 4mm tread in the middle. They declare the shoulders being bare as "normal" and "expected" behavior (sounds like BMW's speak about turbo lag).
