I broke down yesterday and ordered some tires from the Tire Rack! I decided on the Yokohama AD08's 255-35-19 Fr & 275-30-19 Rear. i wished they offered 285-30-19 but oh well I think this size should work fine. I also ordered some carbon fiber BMW center caps and TPMS sensors. I would like to have these mounted sometime in March when the weather improves. It's been snow storm after snow storm and freezing!

That gunmetal/anthracite finish looks awesome. Just what I'm looking for. Nice job.

I think this color will act like a chameleon. Light when the sun is out and dark when the sun is in the clouds. Today we had zero sunshine just more snow

I love your wheels, did you take your Yoko ADVAN 08 from Tire Rack ??

I'm trying to buy a set but I can't check out because they ask me the zip code only

Yes i bought them from tire rack. Your best bet is to call them on the phone and place your order, Thats what i did; I received the tires in 7 days and there customer service is top notch! What sizes are you looking at getting?

Looks great. How does that color compare to gunmetal, looks darker in the pictures. Is it somewhere between gunmetal and black?

Received my OEM CSL wheels recently an put them on today.
Had them painted semi-gloss black (not powdercoated).
Tires are BMW-spec Conti Sport Contact 3.
Could not be happier for the moment, although I would like to change the wheel lugs to black ones and the crome M3-badge has to go...

First pic (detailing is overdue, but cannot find the time )

Compared to the quality of the anthracite powdercoating of your wheels I have to admit, that my black paint looks a bit inferior.
I will just see, how the paint will last. If they become stained too quickly, I will also have them powdercoated.

Thanks to clownin01 as well!

Better pics will follow as soon as the car received a well deserved cleaning
