**A little something different...**

..Maybe a little too different, lol. I decided to change up the look on my OEM m3 wheels, i got tired of the blacked out look. I plan to get them professionally powder coated soon, but before then I wanted to try out a new look without spending tons of $$. So I went with white. It looked nicer than what I thought it would and eventually the look grew on me. Unfortunately the white paint we used would not clean up well. After only a day of driving the dirt and brake dust that accumulated on the wheels would not come off, instead it rubbed into the paint and created some ugly brownish stains....So back to black it was the next day. more than 8 hours of total work and about $45.00 wasted but atleast I know what color not to get them powdercoated now..also I got my M3 front installed yesterday so i posted some pics of that as well. onto the pic...

lol thanks guys.. for these wheels I like the black better also..but I want to get new ones soon with gunmetal or full polished..this car has been through alot..7 sets of wheels, 2 rear bumpers, 2 front bumpers, a full repaint from silver to jet black..my previous wheels were 19x11 iforged senekas in silver with a chrome lip..i miss them so I want to go back with something similar and aggressive for the next..and hopefully last set.

lmao...well right now im at abt 550 give or take.. JK

seriously though I do enjoy working out and staying healthy..but not trying to get huge and bulky..just stay Lean...and the white def POPPED big time against the jet black paint..thats what has me leaning towards a lighter color for the next set..i like to see the design of the wheels.

Haha well honestly I'm not a fan of black wheels on a black car. Looks ghetto IMO. Definitely try out some silver or white wheels.

I like it white. I hope you know that your paint vs PC is completely different. PC doesn't stain like that and is much easier to clean.

White for Sure! Never likled those wheels...until now! They are polished withe grey sides. That type of style does not allow one to notice how concave they are. Not a fan of white, but better than black. I bet those wheels look sick in Hyper Sylver. That color will make your car look aggresive and classy at the same time. Think about it...you already have the wheels, it's just pc it them. GL!

Yea PC is just like an OEM wheel finish..it wont stain...But im on the fence abt the color. or just changing the wheels completely.. These are OEM BBS wheels so the quality is great..If i were to get something diff it prob would be a lower quality wheel. Just not sure what color to powdercoat..maybe pearl white, gunmetal, light grey with a flake? silver? or completely polish them

They look good stock and in black.

i think the white was also a good unique choice, and im sure if you put some clearcoat on the white that the dirt would not have stuck on there
