Picked out my wheels

Just decided on what wheels I'm going to throw my cash at =]

My first choice is of course, and will always be the MORR MS8
they are just gorgeous, not paying the price for them though...



My #2 choice, which I'll be settling on are the BBS CH-R
looking for the best price though lol



People keep telling me you get what you pay for... so Ive decided to take the advice and get the second best =]

So you listened, very good girl .

You can't go wrong either way both use a good manufacturing process when making there wheels. Not my style or cup of tea at all but if I was to choose I would take the Morr for sure, but like I said atleast there both well made wheels

lol i know i know settling might have not been the best word, as BBS is the leading wheel company right now, but still MORR wheels are to die for.

If you like the MORR MS8 you should look into their sister company Alufelgen.

They have the SF-71 that looks similar to the MS8 that is in your price range.

Go with the MORRs...the BBSs are too heavy for the cost of those wheels IMO.
