SSR GT7's on my new e90 328i

Here's the original thread when I bought the wheels:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27715
I went with 17" because I prefer performance over appearance. Therefore, anything over 17" is just extra weight imho.

I weighed them while swapping them out on my bathroom scale and the new wheel/tire set was 43lbs front/45lbs rear whereas the stock set was 59lbs front/63lbs rear

Right away I notcied an improvement in the car's responsiveness with the lighter set.



Note how well the brakes fill in with properly sized wheels


The tires are 225/45 17, 255/40 17.
