18" AG M359 on E90 Le Mans Blue LCI

I just wanted to put up a few pics of the new 18" Avant Garde M359's. I've had these wheels for about 6 weeks now and I'm still impressed by them every day. The quality and finish is beautiful!

I purchased these from **********s and I want to give a shout out to Frank Kim. If you ever want to purchase anything, don't hesitate to call. The customer support was outstanding and I will continue to bring my business to MB.

A couple things to note from my experience. Maybe it was just my service tech, but just pay the extra money and stick with the OEM TPMS. I bought the Oro-Tek and they could not get them on these wheels. Another thing, I bought 18's because I wanted to not spend extra money and just use my stock RF's. Worst decision ever! I will never drive on RF's again.

Just to note, I won't be going to 19's or dropping the car at all. My only future mods will be 20% tint and Lux AE's... well that's the plan at least.

Any and all comments or criticisms are welcome.

P.S. Sorry for the quality. I only have a cell phone camera.

Looks good. The 18's actually look bigger thanks to the extended spokes.

Thanks for all the comments guys! I want to get better shots of the concavity of the rear wheels. It is amazing!

So...you still on the stock RFs? How do they fit...a bit stretched? I saw that Sean recommends 235s front and 265s rear. How would that look ya think?

nice! we have the same exact car, including the performance kit.

i take it you don't have an x-drive model because yours doesn't look a mile high.

HiHoAg - Yes, still stock RFs. They are a tad stretched, but not bad at all. I will be ditching them next spring since they are terrible. Probably going with Michelin PSS 235/265.

K3, BeMWeh, Mass - Thanks!

RBR - No xdrive here. Couldn't stand that gap and I just get a dedicated set for the winter so I'm fine.

conolulu - I am honestly not sure, but these look amazing in person so I'm okay with the reps!

just4kickz - Thanks!

the infamous - I was thinking the same thing. Any idea on what I can fit without having to roll my fenders? Specs are 8.5 ET35 and 9.5 ET33.

Looks nice and clean... Any plans on getting the spacers? They will certainly get you the perfect look! BTW, can you share what tires are you running? I mean the profile. Cheers!
