Not as standard color options. We can always chrome plate, nickel plate, copper plate, etc. our wheels though.

Here's an example of a copper plated V701.

Nobody has chrome plated a set of our wheels yet, but we'll be getting a set of V810s back soon that are currently being nickel plated (also known as black chrome). Should be pretty interesting!

Is it possible to fit V703's on a sedan? Is every size concave? I don't need super wide wheels. I just want a nice stance, but not having to stretch tires or roll fenders. I'm not going to go very low with my suspension when I get around to it.

You can definitely fit a set of V703s on your car. We recommend 18 or 19x8.5 ET35-40 for a nice square fitment, or you could go with an 18 or 19x9.5 ET45 for the rear in a staggered configuration. As long as you get the right tire sizing, no rubbing would occur, and no fender modification is required.

For those of you running 19's, staggered (8.5 front 9.5 rear), what size tires are you running? I have a set of 19" v710's on their way with 8.5 (et35) and 9.5 (et45).

Mine is a 2001 330i

I looked up on tire rack and they say. 245 35 19 rear. That would be taller in the rear.

Wouldn't 245 39 19 make the rear shorter than the front (in diameter)?

We recommend 235/35/19 and 255/30/19 tires in your case. Shouldn't have a problem with that setup.
