A different look

My e92, new wheels and tires (went from 19" to 18"). Tried for a different kind of look, probably not everyone's cup of tea but I love it

Let me know what you think!

Not bad. Definitely something I haven't seen yet (as far as color goes). I like it!

Thumbs up from me!

Your new wheels are definitely my cup of tea!
That's a very nice shade of green IMO!

Thanks for sharing!

Got them powder coated locally for 400$. Originally they were a really dull gun metal grey. Wanted something that would stand out a little more that hopefully wasn't to bright and in your face.

I hate to say this, but they are XXR 521....please don't hate me. They were a really good price and with the way the roads are around here I really wanted to get some taller tires. Also I wasn't a fan of the summers the 19's had (switched over to all-seasons). Canada eh

Agreed! Wasn't entirely sure it would work out but seems that at least some people agree with me

Not a huge fan of the mudflaps, but it helps protect the paint a little in the winter when roads are like this (and no my fender is not dented)

Unplanned snow day. First time with the #e92 in significant snow.

I saw your car somewhere on Instagram maybe a day or two ago. I kinda like it! What are the specs on the wheels? I want a similar set up.

Love the look man!! I have 19" esm LM reps and I'm debating a red powder coat for my AW over coral e92 lci msport! I love this green though. Well done man, looks badass.

Did the powdercoating person have any concern about it not sticking or staying on the bolts in the wheels over time? I assume he just sandblasted the shit out of them and coated??? Let me know.
