I REALLY like these decorsa fusion wheels in hyper black! These were hated on a while back on AW. Everyone thought they were fugly. I think they're different, original and possibly my next wheel. What do you guys think? I p-choped it on my car to get an idea. Any inputs or comments welcome.

Here it is on a sweet B6.

Possibly the ugliest wheels in existence. But then again it's not my car so.....

it looks different....
definately not something I would put on my own car.
but I hate being a me too...

so go for it if you like it. But just picture if you dont like it after you install them on the car... it is going to be tough to unload.

True, but I'm pretty good on visualizing how things look. I'll have to check on price though. That'll probably make it or brake it. It's about 7AM in Cali right now. I'll have to wait and call later.

I wish. Actually I will be soon though. My brother lives in Cali.

Decorsa is based in Cali and they're not open yet. I'll have to wait until they wake their asses up.

I thought someone on AZ posted a set for sale within the past week?

Not my cup of tea but go for it if you like how they look. It'll keep you from blending in with the rest of the crowd, that's for sure!

I kinda like them. I went against the grain too with my new wheels on the CQ. Check it out:

They would look hot if it werent for those silver boxes on the spokes...it makes them look funky, they should have continued the spokes right to the rim and forgot about them boxes.

Then it would look like any other six spoke wheel.

I just checked on pricing and it sounds possible. The company decorsa actually don't sell to the public. You have to contact one of their partner stores. The two closest were in VA and NJ. The Jersey dealer quoted me $940(including shipping) for the hyperblack fusion in 18s. Wheels only. The VA dealer quoted me more but when I told him what the jersey dealer quoted he said he could match it. The price is less than I though but I think I can get it down a bit more. This will be my next wheel- DEFINITELY! It sucks cause winter is right around the corner though. But if you see these wheels on a santorin B5 in the near future in your neighborhood, you know who it is![;)]

don't you guys get sick of seeing the same sh*t? Everyone has either the Oettinger, BBS's, OZ's RS4 reps, S4 wheels, etc. I am just as guilty as the next guy with some of my mods, but time for something new and different.

Here's some other photos I found.

nothin wrong with going against the grain or being different, but those are just strange looking....just my opinion, which is what you asked us for...

all opinions are greatly appreciated. I'm not looking for someone to pat me on the back. I'll keep you guys updated.

they look better on the more modern B6.... I don't know about the B5. I think you'll get sick of them after awhile. They'll be different for a bit and hard to sell later.

09-28-2004, 06:44 PM
lol, I dont think they're too bad, Im even thinking of getting those chrome ones as an extra set of wheels

Sorry man, I'm not feelin' them at all. I wouldn't rock them on my Avant. I just don't like the look. No problem though. I certainly understand your pursuit of being different. However, I like the way the Fliks look on your car. Save the money for another mod...

I think they look ok, kind of coarse and machined look. I don't think I would get them for me, but they are interesting and would definitely turn some heads.

I say go for it. Screw conformity.

i vote negative. as evil said.. ugliest wheel in existence.. however, you may want to look into the teddy bear wheel... stylish, yet against the grain.. just your style.

I never thought of that one. Maybe I could use those for winter.

best looking DeCorsa wheel on their webiste is the Polaris 6...these are mighty fine, and definately different.

chrome version of these don't look too bad, the black ones have a really back contrast to them

Time to change your screenname to RoboCopA4. Go for the flat black paint scheme and lasers behind the grilles.

09-29-2004, 02:43 PM
i think it's different for a reason. It's so ugle no one else wanted it.

Ok not a good 4th post, but oh well.

09-29-2004, 02:57 PM
i don't know about the black look on your color car without a polished lip, just too much. not really fair putting em with laser red, everything looks good with that color (im bias). o well, buy em and sell me the fliks.

i like the wheels, they look nice, but with them they only go one direction-sporty, on the other hand, rs4s look sporty and classy, but then like you said everyboby has them
