Photoshop: SG E91 w/ Style 166

While waiting for delivery, I'm contemplating which wheels to buy. I really like the CSL wheels (especially after seeing diesel007's drool-inducing photos) and mesh/crossed spoke wheels like the ASA AR-1, ACE Rex etc. However I have a feeling those wheels are quite "E46:y". The Bangled E90 has a very different design language, which also shows in the wheel designs.

So currently I'm leaning towards the Style 166 (E60 M5) wheels. I've found a place which sells nice-looking 18-inch replicas with suitable offsets. But how will they look on my SG E91? I whipped up a quick cut&paste job using photos by alelocate (car) and titanium06 (wheels).

I really like the look of this. But does 18 inches look like this? Or is this more like 19-20 inches?

isn't that photoshopped? All I know is you can't just stick the 19 inch M5 wheels in the e90.

Thanks, but I've decided to go with 18" to strike a compromise between looks and comfort.

It will be, in week 12. Although I've specced mine without roof rails, so it will look a little more like this:

if you are going for 18" the best rims for me are the 162

The 162s are not bad, but need spacers to look their best in my opinion. Also, I want my car to look a little different than stock. A new set of wheels gives a nice "custom" look without being too exotic.

I'm pretty much set on the 166 replicas. Now if only week 12 would come a bit faster...
