After all the atrocities of wheel designs we have seen on AM factory cars recently, one of the 6-speed sponsors put some pictures of this DBS with their wheels. I think they look fantastic, and almost OEM. What do you guys think?

I like them - but what's the advantage over OEM? Are they lighter or wider? They do seem to fill the arches better...

I guess they are a bit more unique without looking OTT and they are 21" as opposed to the standard 20". Plus, they have the modern concave look which none of the AM wheel options offer.

Yeah I saw the concave wheel and liked that - 21" is huge but only an inch increase I guess so car would still ride well. They'd look daft on a DB9, not sure I get away with 20"s on mine!

Very nice actually, me likey smile

Not a fan of the concave shape of them, and I think they look too big. Better than some of Astons current designs but they still do OEM options that look better than any aftermarket wheels imo. The standard 20 inch wheels in silver would look much better.

Probably not in a position to afford the wheels, let alone the car but.... I think they look fantastic! Elegant design and the proportions just look perfect. cloud9

Mais oui mon ami bleu, but as I said, not sure I entirely get away with it looks-wise. 19" on DB9 look right, 20" on DBS.

An inch doesn't hurt though (cue actress/bishop joke!)

They look really nice and somehow not massive, They do need finishing with the Aston centre caps.I wonder how much wider they are ? Also are they one piece design ?

Great smilie biggrin

The closer I look at the wheels, the better they look, the diamond turning really is very nicely done. Surprisingly tasteful for the aftermarket, but yes, they just need a light gret paint finish. Like mine smile
