Question SHOULD I ??? question about rims..! please help me out MAX..



hey guys,

well here's the deal..

i'm thinking of a rim change... i'm DYING for some 18" deep dish rims..!

something between a 2.5" lip to a 3.5" lip

so here's my dilemma,

i have a black e36 vert... "see sig" .. i'm thinking of these options

in no particular order

A - Black rims, mesh style, 2.5" lip with thin red "time attack" line around lip

B - Black rims, straight spokes, polished lip, 3.5" lip

C - Brushed aluminum, straight spokes, 3.5" lip

D - Keep my rims

i don't want to be a cop magnet, and i still want it to look sleek..!

so what do you guys think?

Dont do the red lip stripe... it looks wicked on a lot of cars, but I dont think it suits an E36 cab

+1
also, if you don't want to be a cop magnet don't get black rims.

silver straight spokes would be perfect.

keep your rims. Anything else you'll get will be heavy and slow you down.

I'd go with the black rims, mainly because black rims on a black car looks very classy.

black rims with polished lip. My buddy had the same setup on his e36 cab, and it looked good.







... then sell me your rims.
