Looks like we will be seeing Rotiforms on this site shortly. Agree the NUE s are a classic design.

Yea the BLQs have never really tickled my fancy. But i love clean sharp 5 spoke designs. I hope they take some care aligning the bolt pattern with the spoke pattern

See I really like the BLQ's. Mesh type designs have always looked great on our cars. But there's nothing quite like the class of a 5-spoke. Choices choices

Too bad neither one comes in an 18. Not sure which I'd choose but I'm in love with the BLQ's, very similar to the Gallardo LP560-4 wheels.

Yeah but the thing is, at 17x8 et20 on the one piece BLQs, I'd think they'd be pretty flat and look kinda chunky/squished. I think only a bagged Mini, like Rally's clubman, would be able to pull them off.

It depends on the mold they use. Honestly mu wheels are only 17x7.5 et40 and they've got a good bit of concave to them for such a skinny wheel. With a 17x8 et20 they have ROOM to go concave. Not sure if they did or not though. I haven't seen pics yet.

That is true. Every picture I've seen of their cast BLQs seem to be fairly flat though.

Now if they started offering their 3 piece BLQs in 17"s, that'd be a different story

Emailed them about this yesterday. I'll post the info whenever they get back to me.

Brian said both offsets in 17x8 will be concave.

I hesitated to put this in this thread, but did not think it warranted creating a new one...

I think the right MINI could pull them off, personally.

I'd prefer 8.5 or 9....but I love the RML snowflakes. They'd certainly fit a MINI if they were fitted well.

I might ditch the RSs all together this winter, good to see there are some nice options for us now.
