Pics of Breyton 18" Race GTS wheels wanted!

Hello guys,

I found a lot of pics of the Breyton Race GTS wheels in 19" and really love the looks in 19", but since the 18" size has better fitments and is much lighter, I was wondering if they still look big enough on E46 (a Sedan in my case), but wasn't able to find any pictures, especially not on a E46.

Does anyone of you have pictures of the GTS wheels in 18"? I prefer silver or matte gun. Maybe then I can finally make up my mind on a new set of wheels. Damn, finding the right wheels for my car makes me really mad. You spend a lot of money, so it's gotta be fu..in perfect...

Thank's for your help!

Gregor

haha just had to review the vid. there were roosters! haha

never heard them during the recording. them flightless birds gets on my nerves sometimes as they tend to cluck and do that whenever im deep asleep.

i took the car into a local shop to get my wheels aligned but was only able to get cellphone pics. not sure how to upload them but ill try photo bucket.



sorry bout the quality. ive yet to get a chance to capture better ones. btw 18s looks great on a sedan. though lowering it will make it even better. 19s are too big for me. if you do get authentic breytons and go with the same sizes as mine (18x7.5 & 18x8.5 et35) dont get 255 in the rears. go 245/35/18 rears and 225/40/18 fronts. i had my fenders rolled and sometimes i still rub. before the roll, i rub like crazy. hope this helps

Hello Angeletti,

they really do look great. For me, I would prefer 8,5" all around (more concavity, hehe) and only 225/40-18 tires. I like it more when the tires pull a little, it makes the wheels look a little bigger.

So let's hope for some good wather!

Bye
Gregor

yeah we're waiting for that too and a good camera. cell phone pics tend to look good on smaller screens. but when uploaded to a website they look pixelated or blurry. its a 5 megapixel though. hmm anyways as soon as the rain dies down me and my cousin will take pictures of our cars. he has an e34 m5. haha

hey! finally got better pics. it was sunny earlier today when i woke up. used the cam corder to capture stills. not sure how to resize them. sorry

Hi Angeletti, Do you have your rear fenders rolled and the tires still rub?

yeah. i had them rolled. Its P400 each side at autoplus. I still rub cause my offeset of the breytons are 35 only. I read here that the back should be at offset 45 to fit 255 tires. These are authentic breytons but they were meant to fit the e90 body, not ours.

where in the country are you? if you dont mind me asking.

Thanks!

I know i need a drop. Haha, no budget for that yet. I just blew my engine (long story). I was thniking of getting the 19 inch version of this back then. But the potholes and trenches (yep, there are some extremely devastating potholes here in my country) would ruin my wheels on a daily basis. Hence the no drop.

Are you using spacers on the wheels?

Hey, thanks for the tip. I just found this thread again. Taguig city is my home.

Btw, did you import the wheels yourself or is there now a dealer in the PH?
