I have a steel blue sedan, do think gunmetal v10's would be too dark?would silver be a better option?

I would personally go with a silver colored wheel as it will blend in perfect with the light shade of the steel blue.

Here is a picture of a customers E46 coupe with silver VB3's. Not exactly the same combo you are looking for but it give you somewhat of an idea of how great they will look.

Solid suggestion from ModBargains. You can never really go wrong with the Hyper Silver finish, its pretty classic

Stock sport suspension, Continental DWS rubbers.

Drove over 100 miles Saturday with 5 people in the car, no rubs....

i cannot even drive out of my street without rubbing if there is someone in the back

same setup as you have, got my fender rolled, but it rubs on my rear bumpers, starting to think my kumho ecsta's are more square than sportmaxxx or Conti's

^ I'm surprised because the coupe usually has more room. I run the same setup as jizzzoe but with 235's in the front and I rub minorly in the rear driver side if I hit a bump that's enough to compress too far. I can run with 5 people in the car but I need to watch acceleration or that one side will rub at my ride height. I've rolled fenders, taken the rear bumper clips off, shaved the bumper clip bolt as well as the inside of the bumper plastic but still rub! I think it's the top of the tire that's hitting the top rear of the wheel fender. This is my rear driver side ride height:

Because of you I can't decide whether I should go for 18's or 19's. I think 19's would look better but then I see your car on 18's and it looks amazing.

I wouldn't be going for a aggressive set up though so do you think I should try to tuck 19's or just do 18's.... I'm leaning towards 19's. Like 19x8.5 all around since i'm pretty low
