Well Ive posted some pics in a previous thread, but they were taken with my phone. I used a digital camera for these pics and they came out a bit better although Im not a photographer and have no idea how to take nice pics. Also waiting for the center caps from the friend I bought the wheels from. But let me know what everyone thinks.

Thanks I appreciate it. You dont think the color of the wheels are too much? I wanted to try something different. Just didnt want to go with a "wild" color.

No, I feel like the color isn't too flashy, it looks good. It's dark enough to be subtle but still show color

I dig it! Just needs some center caps. Your OEM BMW caps will pop right in if you were wondering

Wheels look great, but draws attention to rusty rotor-hats and calipers -- get some center caps in, too. That color definitely pops on a white car though! Looking good so far

I was wondering. LOL. I do have a set also. The friend I bought the wheels from has the center caps I just need to get them from him. And I hope this isnt too close of a color to your midnight blue. That color was what made me go with a dark blue. But when the sun hits my wheels they get brighter. SO Im hoping its not too close to what you guys offer. Its actually a black chrome base coat. Then 2 coats of candy blue. The second coat of candy blue was too darken the blue a bit instead of being too bright.

Very nice wheel finish!! Maybe you're already considering this, but I would definitely invest into tints and some blacklines next. That should set everything off with the wheels. Car looks great so far man.

Thanks a lot I appreciate the compliments. I actually do have tinted windows already. But only 35% so its pretty light. But your right with the blacklines, I need them bad...

Yes you were right. THank you very much. And I am in the process of looking for spacers. Just not sure if I should use 12.5 mm or 15 mm spacers. Im not getting the front fenders rolled so I was leaning towards the 12.5mm. Bad idea? Will I be ok with 15mm? I did a bit of measuring and it looks like I have about 5/8ths inch between the fender and tire. Oh and as far as the rear, I have no clue how spacers would fit as Im not sure how its not rubbing now. I cant even get a finger between the tire and fender. Its very close. Im still baffled as to how its not rubbing.

You fine with 15mm upfront and get some 10mm rear to make it more aggressive. Lower the front more, it will look alot better spaced out. You only need to fold the front fenders cause its a small lip no big deal and if you want you can add a bit of camber. I'm slammed and tucking alot up front with poke and still don't rub much. I will find you a pic to show the front

Hey thats something that I could color match. Just a bit nervous to color match as my summer wheels are ICONZ 960s with black centers and chrome lips. But Im liking these wheels. But I just paid too much money for the ICONZ to do nothing with them.

Thanks a pic would be great. Do you think I could get away with 15mm upfront with no front fenders mods whatsoever? Even if I dont fold the front fenders should I be ok?
