Looks very oemish if thats the look you were going for I would hope. Clean look and with a proper drop could look very good . Coilovers next maybe??

I hate the 265/35/18 continental DW. They have a stretches look to them.

The front looks wayyyy beefier and I couldnt stand that when I had them.

Hyper silver not exactly an oem color and this is not exactly an OEM style unless you're referring to the CSL style, from which these are similar, but not the same.

Car is leased. No shot of a drop/coilovers unfortunately. I got the 335d for comfort :-), passing power, MPG, and because it was worth it for the price. I'll have this for another year, maybe less, than lease transfer for F30 M Sport 335i.

Big change from my FBO N54 135...

This is exactly what I like about them. Different strokes for different folks.

OP...Did you ever get any pics with the BMW center caps? I have a space gray E90 and was looking at these and the VWR v710s as well. Was considering gunmetal to compliment my SG but the hyper silver looks pretty dark also.

And this may be a noob question but if I have xDrive, should i be running any sort of staggered setup or do I want to stick with the same all the way around?

Need to post the pictures. Hopefull will have time later. Hyper silver is a great color. If you have xDrive, it makes less sense to run staggered, since traction isn't an issue and you can rotate if you run square. But, plenty of people still run staggered on xDrive for the look.

For me, if I had xDrive, I would only run square for rotation purposes. I'd run these front Enkei's at 8.5" wide with a 235/40/18 tire all around.

Thanks! That is what I was planning to do. Wheels look great. still need to decide on gunmetal or hyper silver. Any thoughts on that?

Space Grey Sedan - Hyper Silver or Gunmetal?
