Anyone have BMW style 312 wheels on a GT?

Looking to get some 312 wheels 20" in either grey or silver.

I dont see any pics anywhere of a DSBM with 312s either.

TIA!

I have looked for pics also. They are nice looking wheels. I do wish they had some concave. They look real flat from some of the pics I have seen

FWIW, a concave wheel generates more drag. For max economy (obviously, not what you're looking for), the best wheel body would be totally smooth and slightly convex. Rotten for brake cooling, but more efficient. Since auto makers look for the best compromise - most of their wheels are relatively flat on the front at least in overall profile.

Thanks for the picture! I decided to go with a different wheel, will post pics in 2-3 weeks as the rears are back ordered from Germany.
