I'll be honest, I've never really cared for this style of wheel, and I especially never cared for black wheels on a black car, but...



that's pretty damn sexy. that almost makes we want a set.

I will atest to the quality of these wheels. I ran over a brick at 80mph and the rim only bent slightly. I was 30 miles from home and I made it. The tire was a little flat and the bead was only leaking slowly. Definitely not a cheaply made wheel.

The hyper black looks and works GREAT! Still looks good even if I miss a couple of spots. I can clean all 4 wheels in less than 10 minutes.

Some more pics...

These wheels do take the beating! We've had a lot of happy customers living on the east coast with great reviews. Good thing you got home safe and sound.

The Hyper Black VB3's do look great! I think black window trim would set the car off.

We already have them out! 19x8.5 +20 or +25, and 19x9.5 +22. Only a few sets left in +20, we are switch over to +25 for 5 series use as well as E9x M3.

The car looks great. You should lower the car some more!

What does it ride like?

I wouldn't be able to lower the rear too much, i ended up going with 255's on the back.
