man, e92 xdrives sit way higher than the e90s do.

do not black out the wheels. i would say coils and spacers, wheels after you save up for the right set of silver oem+ wheels.

I feel like the style 230 rims would greatly benefit this car. Looks good with the bumper though!

well then, if you like the fogs keep em!

And coming from a person that had stock 16s plastidipped in matte black (I know right), I say keep your current wheels until you can get the set you want..

Did this real quick, just for you to get an idea of how it would look like with your current wheels in black:

Powder coat the wheels. I have a shop in NY. 125 per wheel fully reconditioned and powdered. They'll look real good

I like it, what color is that? And I would save up money for new wheels. you'll regret it if you spend the money and decide two weeks later to get new wheels.

Just save your money and get new wheels rather then painting your stocks.

1. you'll eventually get new wheels
2. its easier to sell stock, stock wheels
