No one ever gives any respect to ADV1 (and frankly neither do I) but I have to admit that they have some of the sickest color choices for their wheels. Nothing is black and nothing is plain silver. Everything is dark, tinted, brushed, cleared, etc but still shows off the beauty of the wheel design. I have to give them some credit for that.

Gotta looks past the chicks... but their color palette is spot on.

Sorry, tags got messed up when I move photo's around. P43SC Brushed Tinted. They kinda have a dual personality. In the shade, the tint really comes through. In the sun, the tint is more subte and really shine. These aren't pro pics obviously but are a good representation.

They even paint their girls in bronze!!

joking aside, OP i think bit darker gray would have been better. Have you seen iND's M5 with Porsche GT3 RS gray BBS FI? I saw that car druing SEMA and looked perfect in every angle on White car.

If the color of the wheels is the only thing that needs to be changed, I'd say that's a good problem to have!



Thanks Keyon! Yeah I guess it's really a matter of opinion/personal preference.

It's a daily driver so you gotta consider living with it day in and out. For the shows it's nice because it's something different.


I will be receiving a set soon in matte charcoal that will be going on an AW M3. Will post pics for a comparison.

I absolutely love the color and style. PM me if you ever want to sell them.

Seriously though, get a pro shoot and let me get some wallpapers. I love the simple nuances.

That style is so incredibly sexy. To be honest, the wheel colors aren't really for me (not that they look bad though). I would have gone with either brushed or a chrome shadow (think E39 M5). Now that would look out of control on an AW car

Thanks man. I agree on the style. As for your suggestion I definitely agree, would look out of control.

Ding Ding Ding!! Wow, I wonder if my wheel shop can DO that? Is it hard to make a wheel brushed after you've powdercoated it? I love that.

I'm pretty sure HRE could take care of you if you wanted to go the Brushed Tinted route. Here's a pic (P44SC) to give you an idea of Brushed Tinted on white. I haven't seen any white M3's with Brushed Tinted yet.
Good luck!

This is a really cool color!!! However not for me at this time! If I wanted bronze-ish I would go with the Penny finish that HRE makes, I love that finish.

Thanks Chris and W///, I'm going to go this route I think. I have the Tinted Clear powdercoat # from HRE and I'm going to have my guy brush the wheels. Just waiting on some estimates!

You should have HRE do this work. Their pricing is super reasonable and you know it's done right! I realize that you would have shipping costs but you will be surprised to hear their pricing.
