17" race wheels on E92

Anyone running 17" race wheels with beefy rubber on their e92?

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on a set but afraid it may look too small.
Anyone have pics?

There are pics of Apex ARC-8 concave 17s in this thread, towards the end:

For my E90, I think they look fine. I might be on the fence if I owned a coupe. Apex does make 18s though.

Here are a few more photos of the e92 335i with 17x9.5" ET35 ARC-8s:









These are the 17x9.5" ET35 Satin Black ARC-8s wrapped in 255/40/17 Nitto NT01 R-compound tires with 5mm spacers in the front to clear the front strut. It is lowered on TC Kline coilovers with camber plates, dialing in about -2.8 degrees in front and -2 in the rear.
