Smile Got myself a nice set of Summer wheels today

Today is the first year anniversary since I took delivery of this "White Tornado" (the nickname I gave it ) and I got a nice present for my toy

Went to John's house today and fitted my new summer wheels, the fit is perfect and I love the way they look on this AW car ... This be a teaser until they come back from balancing. My 220m OEM wheels will now become my winter wheels ... enjoy the teaser below I will make a nice photo shoot once the wheels return from balancing and I completed detailing my toy for the summer that surely must be just around the corner

Wheels;

VIP Modular VRS-13 20 x 9.5, 20 x 11 - Stepped Lip, 3 pc. forged center, patented spun barrel, made 100% in the USA
Machined/clear center with polished accents, painted barrel
These wheels have simply amazing workmanship, they are like art, with a very aggressive dish and center appearance on the car.

Tires;

Yokohama Advan Sport,
Front 255/30/20, Rear 305/25/20

EDIT PS... I know it is early (with spring just around the corner now) for you
folks up north where the snow is a way of life 6 months of the year ...

if you are in need for a set of 18" x 8" aftermarket 220m wheels
and winter tires (almost new) this is your lucky day my former set
is available since my OEM 220m set now becomes my winter set.

Check it out here ---->Click here for Details

But happy anniversary!

he can always get replacement barrels. That's the beauty of 3 piece wheels.

They don't look as sharp on your car but its because you need to get those lips polished to a mirror finish like the stock picture. Your lips now have to close a finish as your your brushed center so it fuzzes out all the details of the wheel since there is no contrast. I like the wheels but I think polishing those lips is a must-do.

Yes they do need cleaning and polish that is being taken care of ... I've removed the stork wheel picture since it does not represent the true barrel surface mine is actually steeped down for greater strength. The wheel was individually manufactured in the USA (not Korea).

I did not pay attention to this detail when I posted the stock picture that has a straight barrel surface not stepped down like mine. My bad

I will take close ups once I update my ///M3 garage pictures when I do [ictures of both summer and winter wheels will be in there.

Still tanks all around for your kind comments.

I like the 220's better but it's nice to mix it up a little. You've definitely got a lot more bling now.

Golden rule number one in car modifications: No aftermarket wheels without lowering. Shorter sidewalls will always make a car look like it's on stilts.
