APEX ARC-8 color choices - which one?
 
4 Attachment(s)
Ok, so I am thinking i will go 17x9 square. Below are the images of my car. Obviously the pic with the stock wheels is how it sits now. Since I may downsize from 18 to 17, I am leaning towards going with one of the darker options as I feel it will make the size drop not as noticeable.

Did a quick photoshop. Which color do you think is best for my silver zhp?...

darker rims look smaller IMO

stevenluczynski 01-04-2013 03:22 PM

and is there a reason why you're not going with 18's?

Mainly cost of tires. I plan to autocross it about a half dozen times or so this year and comparing apples to apples (Hankook RS3) the 18 inch 255s are $400 more total than the 17s. Not that it's much, but the rims are about $200 less as well for all 4.

anthracite is the color of brake dust, if you are gonna auto-x a lot and get tired of cleaning (we all do)

thecarguy 01-04-2013 07:25 PM

Gabe - out of curiosity is it that you don't like black wheels on just E46's or ANY car?

secono330ci 01-04-2013 07:34 PM

He likes them on my car :eeps:

David@ApexRaceParts 01-04-2013 08:00 PM

Can't go wrong with silver wheels on a silver car! Anthracite also gives a nice contrast, and is great for those who autocross or track a lot and don't want to clean their wheels all time. Satin Black is a hate it or love it color, I personally like it due to the menacing and aggressive tone it gives the car, but I also understand why some people dislike it. :)

Yeah I hear you. I have always really liked black wheels on silver and white cars.

Interesting...the plot thickens! ;)

I'm actually leaning towards hyper black. A good in between silver and anthracite. From the images it looks like it does pretty cool things dependong on the light. Wish I could see in person first.

That does look nice indeed! I can see that's your car. Were you considering those at one time or just messing around?

So is the hyper black more of a gray? It doesn't look black at all. What am I missing here?

vorceb23 01-26-2013 04:59 PM

silver no question

It is very similar to the "black chrome" used on the stock E46 M3 18" wheels, but a bit brighter/lighter. I believe it is a silver-ish top coat painted over a black base coat. Anyone can feel free to correct me on that if I'm wrong.

GT172I 01-29-2013 07:37 PM

Hyper Black! Do it
http://i51.tinypic.com/9vhwjo.jpg

Thats exactly the way I went (17x9 square for tire cost/rotation) and absolutely love it. Been nothing but happy and felt a noticeable improvement from the 7+lb heavier 18" Style 71's
