need help deciding

I'm in the market for a set of 19's or 20's. I've decided on either the 360 Forged Mesh 8 or the Spec 5ive.

I've got a Space Gray E92 with a FR interior. What color wheels would go best?

-Matte Black Center with Chrome Lip
-Matte Black Center with Gloss Black Lip
-Polished Center with Chrome Lip

I've got matte kidney's and side markers. 20% tint all around. Painted reflectors on the way. Also plan on adding front lip and diffuser. Possibly painted, not sure yet.

I have the same problem, I am going with Mesh 8, 20" Matt Blk centre and cannot make a decission on chrome or blk lip either.

But I can say is go with Mesh 8, its more in line with BMW wheel look for the M3 but cannot help with lip though.

If you have a side view of the car I can get a photoshop of the wheels for you and see which one you like best

I believe watrob is going with matte/gloss black

I would go with the black center/chrome lip, you really cannot go wrong with that combo. However, if you are going to black out the rest of the car, do the all black look.

Let me know if you need any help with pricing, we are Authorized 360Forged Dealers
