which 18in on Montego E90?

For my Montego E90, which would you recommend?

1) Wheel style in 18in and?

2) Wheel color?

My thoughts:
Either CSL reps in 18in staggered in Anthracite or Style 162 OEM with 5mm spacer in the rear.

Car is daily driver and I'm not modding it with heavy big wheels, but I think 18s are OK. I might even do a taller tyre to give more comfort.



My car has chrome window trim and chrome grilles and to be honest, after having the matte black trim on my previous TiAg E90 I think I quite like the full chrome on Montego, I think it gives great contrast.

I love the look of the 162s. I picked some up a couple years ago and they look great on the e90. I recommend going with an 18mm spacer for the rear. No issues or rubbing in the two years I've had them.

The VMR VB3 CSL wheels do feature a classic design and is a great choice. If you're keeping you options open, one of my personal favorite designs from VMR is the V701. If you're looking for something in between black and silver, I'd recommend that you check out the Gunmetal finish as well. Here are a few pictures for you to check out!

If you're going with 18" OEM, 5mm is too small in the rear, I'd recommend 15mm.

I like the OEM 195

Here's what looks like like Hyper Black VB3s.



Gunmetal should be kind of similar to that, but I believe they are 19" wheels in the photo. Gunmetal will look really good.

Thanks for the links guys. Yes I'm keeping options open.
19s are out of the question, our roads are not made for them and I don't want to gear up the car and get too big tyres just for extra sidewall protection.

I think the 162s are default choice but remmib's option is cool too in that you don't see a lot of them unlike 162s and they are also staggered.

I need to see CSLs in 18in to make a final call on those... in 19s and with a drop everything looks great but I can't go that route due to roads.
