Default Sway me away from Volk TE37, if you can.

With all the recent craziness surrounding Volks, I fell into the trap. I never had Volks, but I have always been a fan of the TE37. As much as I love OEM wheels, I wouldn't mind giving Volks a try.

If anyone has photos of TE37 on AW, please post. I'm hoping that a particular color can sway me one way or another. Ideally, photos that haven't been circulating this forum too much.

The following shots made me consider them:

Default Re: Sway me away from Volk TE37, if you can.

the 2nd two pictures are reps - Rota's i believe.

i had 19 inch bronze volk ce28n and 18 inch bronze volk te37. they are light wheels and are strong, but they can bend. a forum member here bent his Volk wheels. so once that happened, their invincibility disappeared - as their brute strength and lightweight nature is what made me sweat them in the first place.

i also don't like having 3k invested in something that i dont get to see when I am driving or experience. for the price of 1 set of volks, i bought 2 set of Apex Wheels, which are better looking in my eyes, more readily available, and equally light.

Mag blue, Mercury Silver, and especially Bronze.

My set came off of Mr.Adams car in the first picture! AW+ bronze is a nice combo.

The only Con to Volks are the price.

I mean if you have the money to spare. Then get them you wont regret it! If you do you can always sell them for close to if not exactly what you paid.

There is a guy somewhere on here running mag blue on AW. I like it a lot. Kaiv runs the pressed graphite I think it is on his e90's. Again I was thinking about bullying up and getting volks but decided on a more cost effective wheel (Enkei NT03's). I hope you get volks so you can convince me to get a set.

I think the diamond black would look really good if it was a shade lighter.

Makes sense. I used to autox with Enkei TRMotorsport MT1 9.5x18. That's what I have in my sig. In fact, I had two sets, both of which were sold here on m3forum. Great wheels, no doubt.

Default Re: Sway me away from Volk TE37, if you can.

on reason I could try to sway you away from the te37 is bc I think the ce28's are better looking.

that's it though.

IMO TE37's are played out and have more of a Japanese look to them(obviously since they're made by Rays in Japan). I don't really like them on the E46, but it's your car, not mine.
