Are those the 701s? I thought that was the vb3s? I may be completely off base though.

For e90 335, what offset would you suggest? I would like to be as flush/aggressive as possible and not have to roll/stretch the fenders.

Spacers?

One last thing...What does storm gray look like? I am looking for a completely Matte gray...I am planning on putting matte gray vinyl on the roof and side mirrors and would like wheels to match...

Sorry for 20 questions, but I am getting addicted, and fast!

Storm Gray is between gunmetal and black. It is a dark metallic gray color:
