I pulled the trigger today - ordered Advan RS

I ordered them today. Unfortunately, it'll be a 2-3 month wait
18x8.5 fronts and 18x9.5 rears in Dark Gun Metallic for my TSM 330i.
Here's a taste of what they'll look like (see attached pics)
Interesting the G37 shown has the same offset as the BMW. It was the only pic I could find on a car in Dark Gun Metallic.

I will make sure I get all the pics once they come in. I can't wait!

I ordered them from Ed at http://www.sp-power.com/main/index.php

He quoted me a good price including shipping.

I went with 38 front and 35 rear offsets. You can find all the sizes and offsets here:
http://www.yokohamatire.jp/yrc/japan...HL_BRND_CD=RSB

I'm not sure how light they are, but I saw one thread saying they were about 18lbs. (diffrent forum). I will definitely weigh them when I get them. I view wheels as a performance part, not just looks.

I've actually posted this on another thread. I live in PA and have bent 15" rims on the roads here. I went with 18" because it's a good compromise of looks and performance. I'm more interested in the performance aspect anyway, so the lighter 18" wheels appeal to me more for that reason as well. I view wheels as a performance enhancer and not just bling so they have to be light weight. Under 20lbs was one of my requirements for sure and these wheels should come in around 18lbs each.

PICS, PICS, PICS please!!!

What color and size did you get? Also, if you would weigh them that would be great - no matter the size.
