Another Wheel Question

Hi All,

I want to press the button on some new wheels but am in somewhat of a quandry.

I have an E92 in Sparkling Graphite, and have narrowed the wheels down to 3 choices.

1) 710's (In Hyper Silver)

http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?ro...product_id=617

2) M359's

http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?ro...product_id=614

3) CSL's

http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?ro...product_id=609


I am thinking Hyper Silver for the colour not sure with black / Gun metal etc.

Welcome some feedback on the choices and colour, even better if anyone has some pictures of the above combinations ?

TTFN

Dude,
If it were me, I'd for for the contrast look all day long IF I had a dark coloured car. IMO, The last ones in hyper silver are a winner... by a mile. Of course others will have their own views on this therefore u must go with your gut instinct, press the button and smile...

If not, second up just because I love them are the VMRs (even I go against what I said above).

What ever you chose, you can't go wrong and you're going to have a lovely looking car!

Garage List
I'd always choose silver against a graphite colour car. I love black/gunmetal/anthracite wheels on almost any colour but I think they'd just look lost against a dark grey car.

Mine is black car and gunmetal suits dark colour.
Silver will also suit but silver colour will be seeking attention from others considering the colour of your car.

Always wanted the 710's but just couldnt bring myself to go dark on dark combo so went for contrast !!

Cheers mate.

Here is one i have, not the best quality in the world!

Since this ive lowered it on eibach and it 100% lowers the car, my front arch gap is miles smaller now, my car has gone in today to have my wheels powder coated purely as the tyre fitters decided to burn the laquer off last week replacing the rear tyres So im going for a anthracite colour. I will start a thread when i get it back.

Look forward to seeing your car with the wheels fitted
