Sparkling Graphite Rim Dilemma 18"

Hello u sick high-speed-oholics!

http://i44.tinypic.com/f0otbl.png

MATTE BLACK, or GLOSS BLACK ?

the rims: http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?ro...product_id=622

and the same in matte.

The chrome trim will be transformed in to matte blk in the future when the wallet decides to.

Having a real hard time to decide.

I had matte black on my old car, if you are getting matte trim I personally like the wheels to match

I converted my pre-lci to lci M-Sport conversion and swapped chrome trim to Matte Black.

Gunmetal looks great with our SGM:



Silver looks great, too:



Matte black and gloss black... meh, you won't be able to see the rims.

Just sayin'

Fått hem fälgarna nu!

http://www.greenpart.se/product.html...isr10-gunmetal

Nu är däcken kvarstående prob. Kan jag köra på 275 30 19 utan att skrapa emot?

265 blir lite stretchad & det gillas inte.

Va tror ni ?

Bought the upper trim, because I got tired trying to wrap it. I plan to plastidip the bottom trim. I didn't want to buy replacement bottom trim because the replacement is flimsy rubber. So, why not plastidip the bottom?

OBTW, 275 would fit perfectly in rear on your 19s. Offset at 32 is good.

On a prelci e90? I think it could be done fairly easily. If it does rub its nothing some negative camber cant fix.

Ordered tyres 5h ago, so I think they'll be at my place on wednes or thursday.

Yeah thanks, the rims are kind of "unique" havent seen any e90 on the isr10. but irl they are much more attractive, the concavity is magical.. but i'll take some photos so u can see what i achieved hehe.

http://viewitem.eim.ebay.se/Set-of-4...161144839/item

U think these will fit my rims?
