I love Work VS-XX wheels. They look great on this car. Especially the way they are done. Good work.

I love the wheels, but don't understand the stretched look. I've seen it on low riders and what not, but don't get the attraction on a high performance car like an M3.

The tire looks like it's about to roll off the rim.

I don't get it either. I've noticed its more a younger person's thing and they think people who don't get it as narrow minded.
I just can't imagine putting my foot in it....wheels breaking loose....and me worrying about the wheel having enough protection. I don't get for any car but especially a performance car.

Everyone's got their own opinion, I personally like a slightly stretched tire anything too much is ugly.

on another note..will driving with a slightly stretched tire be okay lol. Don't want my rims to get damaged 😞. Highway and fast driving okay? As long as I try and avoid potholes..?

Well, just be really careful. I've had Work wheels in the past and the lips are very soft and easy to bend. Those babies are too pretty to mess up.

ehhh.. I don't like the stretched look, just seems like someone doesn't know how to buy the right parts that fit.

love the look, one of my favorite wheels. I can understand you want the stretch herra frush look but what I don't understand is why you would use those tires, FK452 just sucks donkey balls straight up. IMHO, the rear seems like it has some room left to play with, wiiiider?
