Again we'll see what I can accomplish with spacers. The stance thing is so overplayed and in the end, not even practical. If they rub it's going back to stock.
Take it to the track, problem fixed . But in seriousness, I understand on the money thing, and at least we are on the same page on the stance aspect of it.

meehh, I like the car, but I don't think the wheels look good on it. Like runnin9z said, it cheapens the look

I love the car; especially the color, but those wheels look like shit on it.

Don't take that personally. I feel like it's REALLY hard to get ANY set of wheels to look good on that body style.

As far as I'm concerned, the only way you can go is some sort of concave design because of the low rear arches/"flat" sides of the car. It's almost like BMW designed a "reverse rake" into the styling of the car. The lip on the rear really kills it.

That's what had it on me. And VMR's are very cheap wheels, that's why I referred them to you. If you want nice, expensive track wheels, check out HRE's and Apex's, specifically the EC-7.

I agree about the lip. Also, the tires look way too short, especially in the 3rd pic you posted. What size are they?

Very nice car, but the wheels are something i'd expect to see on a primered 92 240sx pos; and not a nice newer BMW.


Machined lip looks like shit; you can get such nice wheels on vrwheels, etc. There's no reason someone can't wait and save up another $7-1000 for decent wheels. You can get real 18" LM's for $1600-2000 all day on some jdm wheel sites. I say put stock wheels back on, sell those and spend a little more for something that fits the car. They honestly look horrible, and coilovers won't help the fact you put cheaper wheels on it than stock.

Need more Blackout ranting in football thread.

I would have stuck with the stock wheels over Rota's for this car.
