Alufelgen SF-71 Installed Today

Ordered in Diamond Cut Black from **********s on Monday, arrived in Texas today and were mounted onto Conti ExtremeContact DW's in 235/35/19 and 265/65/19. Love the wheels. Only complaint is a few blemishes on the face of 2 wheels that were almost certainly done at the manufacturer, as packaging was excellent. Not sweating it though, probably would have happened in a week.

mmm. my favorite, I love this look... I have some black wheels with chrome lips on my black sedan, but I really consider going with the machined faced/black insert look... looks awesome!

more pics!

Those look great. What is opti-coat? Something for a diamond cut wheel instead of wax?

It's a long lasting sealant. It lasts for about a year.

Any more pics?

Wow -- this really looks amazing! If you get a chance to share a profile shot, I'd really appreciate the chance to photoshop these onto my car. I just bought a 2011 335IS in Alpine White and I'm wondering if this machined+black look would work for my car.

I generally love the hyper silver of the AG, Morr, VMR, Alufelgen, Linea Corse, etc, but I also love the "Storm Trooper" look of the black wheels and accents on the AW BMWs.

Especially with the black mirrors and diffuser on the IS, I think these might be just the wheels I need to tie it all together.

Anyway, love the look and congratulations!

Also, still sitting on stock sport suspension, but with these now installed I really don't see the benefit of going lower. Not too much gap at all
