Talking Is it good looking now? 335i with Avant Garde M355

Hi guys,

I recently put some money in my 335i and got new Avant Garde M355 rims and a OEM Performance rear bumper. I think it looks damn good now. Maybe the front section will be next

Very nice. I really liked the silver and dont usually like black wheels but 355 look good in black. Gloss black would look really dope.

What's the point of new wheels when you're gonna paint them black anyway? It pretty much looks the same as before from 10 feet away.

Well either you like black rims or not. What you are saying doesn't make any sense. You are basically saying if you have black rims you should not buy new ones? lol.

Now I run 235/19 in the front and 265/19 in the back and no spacers at all. I run it all on the Falken FK453 tires.

Actually I agree. Black rims look like a black hole no matter what the style. Just a waste of money. YMMV

So does that mean you're running 19x9 in the front and 19x10.5?

Unless it's an aggressive fitment or overall aggressive look of the car black wheels are just ehh. The car looked a lot cleaner when the wheels were silver but thats just my opinion of course.

Edit: Disregard my sig pic. I have different wheels on now

Falken 453s are the best. I get so much grip with mine. How wide are your tires

One of the best solution with OEM look wheels. ( I have them too))

But why in black color?

The wheels looks best in original two colors paint!!

The car looks aggressive now. Trust me black rims help the overall contrast of the car. Black roof, windows, and rims on a gray car look sick. Before I also had a white M5 with black rims. That's just how I roll haha. No but I also think that the rims look really sick in silver but I like the overall contrast of the car now better. Tough call

Sure those wheels make a difference...but I prefer the silver because the black hides the details & definition of the wheels.
