Looks good. Just make sure you get a drop. Will make it look 10x better. BTW those tires look badass with the red writing on the side.

Looks awesome! More pics please, and I like that you installed the center caps, would you consider putting the bmw roundels on them?

i thought having roundels on the those wheels look kind of odd. so i went with the advan center caps instead. i'll post more pics tomorrow when once i take some during the day time!

I like the Gun Metal. My concern would be matching it if you get curb damage, though.

They look great! You need black wheel locks, though (BMW's are black).

I'm so jealous. Instead, I've just order 18x9.5 TM Motorsports wheels with 275/35/R18 Toyo RA1 tires (square setup) for lapping.

We should meet some someday in Montreal. I'm located in Mirabel.

Ciao, Vince

245/35/19 and 275/30//19

i should have gone with 275/35/19 though... it would have helped to lessen the gap in the back a little... but the front gap is the huge one... it really needs to be lowered i guess.

the tires were marked by me ... i got some removable paint that works on rubber and marked it on my own just to see how it looks. i actually like it so i am keeping it on. i've washed the car a few times and gone through a high pressure wash and it's stayed on without any fading or discoloration.
