Need Help Deciding Wheels

Trying to find some good wheels for my car... It's this color (using BMW 420i's picture - thanks buddy lol)


Option 1:


Option 2:


Option 3:
Nevermind.

Option 4:


Option 5:
Nevermind.

Help me out! I plan on doing the black vinyl roof, window tint, black line tails, and halo black bezel projectors. Then I will be done. But the rims need to set aside the ride for me.

Thoughts!? Any other rims you can think of, please link. Budget for rims MAX is $800.

JDLM - Would be great if users actually answered posts in there, that's why I am reaching out to the general community.

Sasha1234 - I am not looking at "just buying chrome" for my wheels if you took a look at my WHOLE post, MMKAAY?

skatenc123 - Any recommendations for the gold contrast?

option 1, just because of the proper setup. As for color contrast, leave it OEM, it will look nice as is with your car.

not sure what the going rate is for VMR wheels, but pretty much any of them would look good with proper drop and spacing.

You are joking right? When I posted a few hours ago every one of your wheel choices was Chrome except for Option 1 and now you edited them and call me an idiot for not looking at your "whole" post when in fact it is completely different from earlier.

The OP changed all the wheels in the thread after the first posts mocked his chrome wheel choices. You don't see what we saw and they cannot be unseen...

None of the above.

Look into linea corse and vmr wheels. At 200 a wheel, you're probably looking at cast wheels and there are a lot of them to choose from. Also maybe get a set used, then maybe you can get something stronger.

Or just save and get morr vs8.2s. That what I did.
