help me pick new wheels

looking for new 19" wheels for my pre lci jet black e90... thoughts?


I really want M5 Reps - style 166

... problem is, I can only find these either ET20 which is way too aggressive, and ET40 which isnt aggressive enough... would hate to have to buy wheels AND spacers.... ET40 I doubt would look that good... but these rims are badass.. i would prob get these in gunmetal color





Or the newer M5 reps... - I KNOW THE PIC ARE M6 - I couldnt find a black sedan with the M5 reps, but these M6 reps are close...
... the M5 Reps are somewhat the same, 5-spoke with the split spokes and concave... I would get machined face with the black inserts



these rims



OR

go with VMR 701's.. and hope they go on sale for 4th of July...





would also get these in gunmetal.

so... either one of the M5 reps, or the VMR's?

I know some off the style-166 reps are NOT as concave as the OEM ones that came on the M5 which sucks, because thats what makes those wheels so badass.

thoughts? I need new wheels

Post a pic of the hyper silver... The first pic of the 701s I posted, almost looks like they are hyper black wheels, but couldn't find those rims in that color anywhere

Can you tell me what color the 701's are on the 1st picture I posted of the black sedan? (front of car pointed to the left side of your screen)

Are they gunmetal, hyperblack, or something else? Looks way "shine-y-ier" than the bottom picture where they are definitely gunmetal.

Can you even get the 701's in hyperblack? ... how much extra $ does that run?

Any specials for 4th of July?

That is our gunmetal finish. Both gunmetal and hyper silver have a gloss clear on them, so they are "equally" shiny. We do not offer that wheel in hyper black, but we can do custom refinishing. We have not found a powder coat finish that's exactly like hyper black however.

I'm looking to get the v701's in gunmetal for my jet black e90. I love the look of the mesh wheels, but it seems everyone has the same wheels, so I guess I'll go for something different. Lol.
