Rims - Thoughts...
1 Attachment(s)
So I needed suggestions on places to pick up rims, but I am looking at getting a staggered set of these rims - MMR GT1. They Sell them at Car Kraze in Brampton, but just wanted to see if anyone had any other recommended shops. I plan to get the fenders rolled at Stancefactory and have these tires rims installed but I wanted some opinions. *mw*

Dude, I like your OG Parallel rims on your car. If you do get cross spoke, go with something abit darker for the spokes as it will suit your car better - these may stand out too much.

I actually like the look of these, I just really want the deep dish at the back, and I find that so many people are putting the Style 5's on their E36s. Mind you, I still wouldn't mind them but super hard to find a set of 18". I think i might be ordering these this week. might keep the Parallel's and get them refinished in a couple of years...

I think you should keep searching for the Style 5's!! In my opinion I think these rims would stand out way too much, it would upset the whole OEM look you got goin on there. Your car looks amazing right now, even with the Parallel's although it would look much much better with Style 5's then the MMR GT1 rims. And I hear what you're saying about every one putting Stlye 5's on their e36's.

Go with OG wheels, find a set of Type III's Schnitzers so that I can remember my E36 Sedan days through you ;) I was almost going to pick up a set for my vert before I found the current wheels.

They look cheap as hell man I agree with these guys. Stick to something from a real company, those wheels appear to come out of the same $35/wheel factory as the rest of the knockoffs. Your car deserves more.

Nuff Said Jay... Guess i'm holding off for the style 5's... and I want the OEM style 5's or M Parallel's... 18" Staggared!

Ok... here is another thought... All silver, or Gold Centers on my car for the style 5's?

noodles101 06-07-2011 10:48 PM

ur car is mostly grey , i think darker gold .. between gold and bronze colour ?
would look good in my opinion.

blk3 06-07-2011 10:49 PM

me I would say all silver, no gold

The only ones I have found so far are a set on kijiji with gold centers, but I would prefer to get all silver... Would really like to get a set before the end of the month...

Personally i'd say making the center a different color would somewhat individualize your style 5 as opposed to the "all silver" that most run.

I'm biased towards the gold because i saw how it looked on my dark green and fell in love.*mw*

+1 on ditching the original wheels posted.

OEM parallels for sure. You have crazy dudes like me asking 2.5k for new 18" style 5s, you can probably find a mint set of parallels for half that. We'll do some fender magic and you'll have an instant classic.

If I can get a nice clean set of either, I will be pretty happy. Of course now when I want them, I can't find a set of either!
