I dunno....it's a great style of wheel but I just don't care for it. I feel the only times I like AW with bright wheels is when the car is slammed. It certainly doesn't matter what I think though. Now to see those wheels on a TiAg or a Sparkling Graphite....I'd be curious.

Wow thats pretty sick. I didnt realize such a big wheel could fit in the front. Do you have any kind of fender mods up front to fit that?

Yeah I desperately need spacers up front. Ive been told to put spacers on the rear also, but theres zero room between the tire and fender. And rear fenders are rolled. So I dont know how a spacer would fit in the rear.

I figured this look wouldnt be for everyone. I was planning on using it for the winter months. But I kind of like the look. So many summer wheels also. I just dont want to waste the new ICONZ 960s I just took off.

The exhaust you mean? Yes they are sticking out. I have the turner motorsports catback and its adjustable for e90 or e92. It came off an e92 so Im guessing the install shop was too lazy to adjust it for my e90.

I love how the wheels look darker in low light, and how the blue really pops in brighter conditions. Way to be original and do something different, very nicely done John!!

Yeah Im hoping to stay away from camber adjustments and fender rolling on the front. Im hoping the 15mm spacers will work with no issues. Im kind of stuck between 12.5mm and 15mm spacers .

I ordered a set of 15mm spacers and new lug bolts from ECS Tuning last night. Im figuring I have enough room to fit these. At least I hope I do lol. Being the 225/35/19 tire is stretched on the 8.5 inch +35 front wheels I think it should work. I did a few measurements but wasnt exactly positive where on the tire to measure. So I put I ruler on the inside of the front fender and measured from the top of the tire to the ruler(where fender would be.) Does this sound like the proper measurement? I came up with 3/4 of an inch. Which calculates out to be 19.05mm which seems like plenty clearance. But if I measure the tire closer to the rim itself to the fender its about 5/8ths. That comes out to be 15.875mm. So assuming I have 5/8ths or 3/4 inch of clearance, should the 15mm spacers fit?

And project335i did help me out and said the 15mm will fit. Youve been a great help with this whole wheel situation I have. And if anyone knows he would with those massive wheels lol. But I just thought Id get a few more opinions although the spacers are already ordered. Yeah I know, Im anal.
