My new Alloy Technic Mesh

I decided my Advan RS-D were getting played out.. and I wasn't happy with the look of those rims on the M3 (Too boy racer F&F for me).. so I got some new rims for 2010..

Alloy Technic Mesh
10,000 ton forged, one piece
Front: 20" 9.0 et27
Rear: 20" 10.5 et27
Finish: brushed silver with clearcoat

Tires:
Toyo T1R
Front: 255/30/20
Rear: 285/30/20
Beru TPMS

I can't say it was a total pleasure dealing with Alloy Technic.. They told me my rims shipped first week of December after a 1 month wait (which was fine) but then the fun began and almost 2 months later..they arrive. I had to deal with week after week of excuses and mishaps. I want to really thank Julius at WSTO for keeping me sane through this whole process and pulling the final string on getting these shipped to me..If it wasn't for him, I think I would have either lost my money or be still waiting..

1. Pile-o-mods arrive via UPS. It almost feels surreal..thought I'd NEVER get them..


2. Here's a totally unscientific way of weighing one of my larger rear staggered rims.. Bathroom scale sez 20.6 lbs.. pretty damn light for a 20" rim. This weighed about the same as my old Advans!


3. Mounted! My Kics Project "neochro" lugs reflect a rainbow against the brushed aluminum


4.


5.


6. Note: I had to throw the hideous front plate on to pass a State inspection on Monday.. It's coming off right after


7. I like this shot for some reason.. it looks gritty.. this is before i washed it


8. Driven Perfection.. home of the $20 hand wash! car is sparkling again..


9.


10.

Fini,

Your car looks great with those wheels installed.

Thank You for writing an open & honest account of what happened. Much respect for that...

Please let us know how well these new lightweight forged wheels hold up on the street.

Thanks.

Great Choice!
I would choose these wheels over the RS-D anyday!
Although I do love the advans too, but these are too sick.
