It looks like the HID light blurs out the inner ring. Any other pics of the eyes?

Good setup looks sweet.

The wheels look really small though.

Very nice!, but those angel eyes are too bright and you lose shape of the rings. Also, i'm not a fan of the stretched tire you have in the front. I like the taillights, but i would have smoked them out darker. Overall, nice job though!

Yeah, what width wheel are you running in the front? Those tires look way stretched for a 245. Other than that, it looks good. It's nice to see some modded Silverstones.

I like it!

Be careful though, those wheels are begging for curb/road rash.

+1 fronts are way to stretched. I'd bet this wheel width is not in the recommended range for the tire size.

That is the tire size that 360 forged recommended using. That's what they're using on all there M3 setups. I think it looks great personally but to each his own, AND THIS IS MY OWN

Yeah its a little blurred in the picture (crappy camera), but trust me YOU HAVE NO IDEA how many compliments I have gotten and people asking me where I got that done in the short time I've had this car.

They were mine i had already ordered them and 360 just changed the lips to an m3. They were already through production thats why he got them so fast. They just had to change lips.

Dont worry my friend ordered wheels from hre and it took 12-16 weeks! Youll get the wheels soon dont worry lol

the front offsets and wheel width don't look right at all...they shouldn't stick out like that. The front looks more aggressive than the rear.

They were trying a new offset... he wanted a bigger lip in the front so they were trying something different. I think it looks more agressive in the front because of the stretched tire look. If you look at the picture from the rear looking down the side of the car both wheels come out perfectly flush to the fender's end

Yea the wheels are 20x11 and 20x9
