Agreed! It is nice to see that some people are willing to do something unique with their wheel finish choice!

Hyper Black finish on VB3/V703 ... One of my favorites!

Love the VMR wheels. Will definitely pick a set up once things get going for me.
What would you recommend for an aggressive/flush setup for an 04 325Ci? Don't mind going staggered just didn't know what offset/size would be best. I would however like to keep it at an 18" rim.

Glad to hear!

I would recommend a staggered 18" setup; 18x8.5 ET35 front and 18x9.5 ET45 rear. This would give you a pretty solid fitment!

That looks fantastic! What type of tires? Is the 225 a bit of a stretch?

Uhhhh, I just said it. Continental DWS.

I wanted to get 235's in the front, but they were severely backordered so I went 225. They are just a tiny little bit more stretched than the rears. Not noticeable unless you are really looking for it. When I replace them I will be doing so with 235's.

Thanks for compliments

Ya, the stretch from a 225 tire is just a slight one, still looks good though! But 235s are suited better when matched up with a 265. To keep the rolling diameter as similar as possible
