im getting these wheels next month (very very good deal) I may need to use spacers. I might end up re-finishing them in a different color. still not sure yet which color. what you think?
i know its not the best picture to phop with, but thats all i have to work with.

Yes Jeremy, they would look great on your ride !
Get the 18"X 8 bbs Rk's and powdercoat them white.

Before you do that, do the 5 lug conversion.

Rayz, those wheels look good on any car.

the ones Im getting arent BBS's. they look like the RK's tho. $600 w/tires, and the deal is, that i can pay in installments.:D

i'm not feeling the white on a beige/gold car.
It definately screams chrome or polished silver, or just some deep dish.

Agreed. I'm with you on this one. I just think that the colors are going to clash to much, but what do i know..............

rayz,

To be totaly honest...that colour combo (beige with white) is going to look like...well...sh!t. I would take a really good digital pic of your car and get some of the photoshop gurus on maX to give you a good idea what it will look like.

I would suggest the 17" hyper black Alpina wheels from www.abrahamsmotorsport.com (http://www.abrahamsmotorsport.com/).

I wouldn't do white wheels unless my car was Black/Blue or red. I have the same problem I'm in love with the white M3 with the gun metal HRE's (the one in Jon's sig) but I don't think they would look good on my coupe. I keep checking the want adds for an alpine white e46 325 coupe. It wouldn't be original but who would care?

Now why would you want a porky E46 325? Get a nice set of wheels for your M Coupe! In my opinion taking an E46 325 would be a step down.

:confused:

Not an M Coupe but those Breyton Visions are damn nice!

I meant as a daily driver. From that post you must think I had completely lost my mind. I bet those SRS GT3's cost a small fortune. They sure are sweet.

Phew! You had me worried there! LOL! :D Forget the E46...go with the new WRX Sti! AWD and 300hp!
