John I really can't imagine how you would EVER want to take those wheels off your car... custom finish is amazing man! And the styling of course is perfect for your car

And thanks for the good review on the refnishing. Again, the factory finish is very nice and there are times that I wish I had just left it alone. But, they did a great job with the paint (these are bears to paint) and this TiAg paint can do some beautiful things in the right light. I'll post some nighttime-parking lot and under-the-gas station-lights pics soon. That's when TiAg looks really awesome.

And, I'll let ya know in 6 months whether it was worth it. LOL

There was a guy on the forum who took some E39 M5 wheels (M parallel spoke 65s) and did a machine/polished "lip" (bead) and custom-finished the spokes to be color-matched to his steel gray (?) car. It looked really good. I was wondering what these CSLs would look like with a polished edge just to add some detail.

Oh, and another what-not-to-do

In my previous staggered set, I got the 255s for the rear and had a minor rubbing issue on the inside of the wheel well. When I ordered these (having already bought the ASAs with 245s on the rear), I thought I would be able to transfer the rubber to the rear of these CSls.

Well, you CAN but I certainly don't recommend it. I'll be ordering the 255s today. Here's what the 245s look like on the 9.5 rears-

This is one of the few wheels that I think look good in 18".

Nice cars guys!

What is the difference between the Staggered and Non-staggered wheels?

u basically have a smaller width wheel in the front versus the rear. Like on stock 330 sports, they have i think 7 in wide wheels in the front and 7.5 in the rear. Forget the exact size, but I think you get the picture. I guess it helps in some handling aspects. I'm sure you'll find a lot of threads on this.
