My kingdom for an 18x9.5-10-10.5, light colored, ET20-25 forged wheel!

Why are there no options like this that aren't custom or absurdly expensive? Why is everything gunmetal or black or some combination thereof? Why hasn't the Apex forged wheel come out yet? Why why why?

If the bimmerworld TA16 came in machined metal in 18x9.5-10-10.5 ~ET25 I'd already have a set! They only come in ET33, and I'd rather not use spacers all round, but I may just get desperate enough to do it

If the Titan7 10-spoke came in a silver or machined finish, same story.

But NOOOOO everything MUST be dark and very serious, beacuse our cars are very serious nevermind they mostly came with polished or silver wheels

Gah

Help

I agree, I'm not a fan of weak offsets or dark wheels.

I was a huge fan of gunmetal for a while, but all of my "fun" wheels since I got the car almost 10 years ago have been gunmetal and life's too short for one wheel look. Stuck with my boat anchor but still rad 9.5" square 220M's while I find my next fashion accessory. Somebody please shut up and take my money

I'd get the TEAL one and run a spacer... it's such a great wheel, its details are so nice.

I also have a set of BBS FIs on my E92 (gunmetal...) and never feel I'm missing out on something when comparing vs the TEALs

Have you checked out the Titan 7 TS7's? They offer a silver finish and comes in 18x9.5 et 22, 18x10 et 25 and 18x10.5 et 25

How are the specs/offset? do you have to run a spacer?

They're the 19" 9.5 front and 10.5 rear versions of the FIs

I don't know the offsets but the rear is good as is and the front has a 10mm spacer and they both look fantastic in terms of flushness.
Zero vibration with the spacer regardless of speed but as you know sometimes you have to mount and dismount the spacer multiple times to get to that point.

Maybe you can bug the APEX guys to make their new wheel(s) in silver..

I told them but they're not actually making those wheels and it's all just a big lie and nothing matters anymore

I give up. Caught a nail in one my 19" PS4S this morning. Clearly the world wants me to have gunmetal light wheels. Bought a forum member's BW TA16's. At least itís an OEM-looking finish and wheel
