E90 with RAC RG63s

First time my car has been clean since I bolted on the new wheels so thought I would take some quick pics. Love these wheels, keep getting compliments from passers by, even non-car people. Hard to capture how much the finish pops until you see in person. Won't bother reposting the wheel specs, you've all seen them several times. Tires are Yoko AD08s, F: 275/30, R: 295/30.









And a couple of gratuitous scenery pics...

Looks absolutely awesome. I've always liked those rims!

Two questions
1) What size are they (they look like 18s, but I'm no expert)

2) What % tint do you have?

Looks awesome! I'm in love with my silver RG63s but with SG E90, you make me wanna go out and take pictures too of my car!

By the way, what type of suspension are you on?

Thanks!

You can't buy these wheels at retail. They were custom made for a group of 75 forum members over the course of two group buys. There are about 3-4 sets for sale by private members in the for sale section of this forum.

F: 9x19, R:10x19, ET22 F&R

Tint is 3M 35%. Looks a little darker with JB and my black interior.

Stock ride. The AD08s are a little beefier looking so looks like less gap than stock even though I'm not lowered. Overall OD is close to stock F and R, but the more square sidewall and nice offset of the RG63s help fill it out.

They look so similar to the wheels in the competition package. Of course construction is different.

Don't know what is it with the E90 pics these days! They keep getting better and better. Wish we got sedans here.
