VM V715 or Beyern Mesh?

I have Sparkling Graphite E92 335. I have plans on adding CF hood, trunk in the future. Does anyone know if the beyern's have high-polished/chrome lip like the V715?

What do you think would look best on my car? Beyern Mesh in 19s or Velocity Motoring V-715 wheels in Gunmetal?

Here's some pics:

I have some gunmetal V715's on order (and hopefully delivered early next week). I'll post some pics once they arrive.

I would also say the 715s... gunmetal or hyperblack would be absolutely perfect on your car.

the velocity rims are delicious~! but how strong are they compare to Beyern?

Plus, what is the weight for the rims?

Both the Beyern and Velocity wheels will be identical in construction and strength. They both pass JWL and VIA certifications to ensure that they are similar to an OEM wheel in terms of durability and strength. The Velocitys are between 25 and 26lbs.

Hmm a tough one, but I think the Beyren Mesh is very classy on the car while keeping some aggressions. The V715 in a Hyperblack would give off a very agressive look though more so then the Beyren. Take a look at as many pictures as you can I'd say, and make the decision you think would best suit your own taste, oh and whenever you are ready you can always give us a call and we can help you out with either wheels

I think I might go for the Beyern Mesh, Just because I can look at them before buying. I don't know anyone with V715 around, so I don't want to buy a wheel based of pics.

An example would be, I used to hate the way BBS LM's looked. Once I saw them in person, I fell in love. Pics and real life are two totally different things.
