Hmm still riding on Mexicans and looking out for an old set of BBS wheels that fit , but to keep me motivated I found a few cool pics of 107's with different wheels I thought I might share -






















I think the bottom one is my fav , car same colour as mine and the wheels just look right , great stance and not too modern !

Please feel free to add pics of cool wheels !! To inspire me more or pics of truly nasty ones just for a laugh .

The Pentas can also be colour-coded.

These look alright. At tirerack.com you can see any of the rims on the car. I'm sure most of you know this.

Colour matched Pentas look really slick. I do have a fondness for well polished bundt-cake rims, but the Pentas still look elegant while giving the car more gravitas- I know some people think there is such a thing as too much chrome :D

I have most of these in my garage, just not the remotek and bbs style one-piece and Amg aero 3-piece :). ( lorinser LO are sold awaiting shipping.)
I have BBS one piece--I thought they were more apropos to the age of the car.

And I see there are a few examples painted to match the car color, that is something I am toying with.

My belief is that that car is running BBS RS133 8x16 et21 up front and BBS RS078 9x16 et11 in the back. There is also BBS RS058 10x16 et11 which could potentially be a fit too... but would probably require fender rolling or stretched tires.

This w107 color + wheels is my favorit
This is by far the best 107 picture I have seen around here.

The German license plate reads "MA" for Mannheim which is my hometown where I grew up, went to school, went through a mechanic apprenticeship, and lived there until 1985 when I moved to the US.

Well, I just noticed the triple6 after you pointed it out. That part of the license plate wouldn't be my cup of tea and would have to go.
