Question E92 Sports Package OEM BLACK rims?!

Hi everyone,

This is my first thread and I am honored to be part of this forum of BMW fanatics

I recently got myself a Jet Black BMW 335i with a freshly shining Coral Red interior, really happy with the car and color combo, it's turning a lot of heads, mostly hot Lebanese babes

I've been browsing some threads around in the forum, and I liked the black on black idea. Thought it would be dull at first, because it doesn't create a contrasting effect, (Black rims are mostly installed on white cars) but after I saw black on black E92s I definitely changed my mind... It does a sick effect

I love my stock Star-spoke rims though, I would like to keep this design I simply ADORE the visual harmony they create when they spin and rotate

I was wondering if anyone has tried to paint the Stock OEM Star-spoke style 189 18" Sports Package Rims pictured below, in Matte/Glossy Black or Gunmetal?



I would love to know how they would look like, preferably on a Jet Black 335i.

Thanks!

Hey everyone...

Dunno why the photos are not appearing anymore, Dead Links

If anyone wants them, just PM me with your E-mail address and I'll manage to give them to you because they're pretty hard to find.

Cheers
