Forgeline GA1R's on a Lime Rock

Hi all,

Just got my wheels today - I think they look awesome! Specs are: 19x10 25et and 19x11 31et with Mich PSS in 275/30 & 295/30 and the wheel color is gloss gunmetal. Front wheel/tire combo is 3lbs lighter than the zcps with the conti's! Rears are about a pound lighter. Pretty impressive given the massive increase in contact patch. These wheels are as nice as any other wheel I've owned (BBS, HRE, RAC, Volks etc). Pics don't do them justice! Thanks to Mike at VAC for a smooth transaction!

Car desperately needs a drop and I have MCS single adjustables on order - should be here in a week or so. Also getting a performance friction bbk in fire orange and an ESS exhaust in black. Also have an RKP upper lip waiting to go on. Hopefully everything will be on the car in a couple of weeks. For now here's a couple of pics as she stands today:





Thanks!
BC

Yep it's a six speed. The only option is heated seats - just what I wanted. Car has approximately 5k miles so it's still pretty new - also no driving in the rain so that helps keep it clean...

Thanks!

Looks great! I remember some of your past M3's. You have a knack for assembling a bad a$$ car.

Do you mind posting some pics so we can see how the tires line up with the fenders with these wheel specs. Thanks.

Those black wheels with the fire orange is a perfect match. Love your combo.

They're gunmetal, not black.

Looks great Barry.
