Bronze Carbyne Design 18s on my Facelift Coupe

I came across a new wheel a few weeks ago that I just had to have. The fitment was spot on (no more spacers!) and I've always liked a simple 5 spoke design. They are Carbyne Design Wheels. I would definitely check them out if you are looking for a cheap track/drift/winter wheel (~$550 shipped). They look and feel solid, and the finish is good enough.

Specs:
18x9 +10
245/40R18 GT Radial tires

The bronze has definitely grown on me. Let me know what you guys think:





In this pic, the front has a 10mm spacer on each side. It has since been taken out (not installed on pics above):

The back will rub on occasion when hitting a big freeway dip. No rubbing up front. I did do a very aggressive fender roll and pull on my car, though.

Don't care for the color or overly aggressive offset.

This should help. The fender on that side is lipped up pretty bad from when I had a 10mm spacer up front with these wheels. Oops!

WoW! If you ever decide to sell those wheels hit me up. They would fit my e46 perfectly. Any rubbing issues on front inside?

I rub the frame rails only because I have the SLR Speed steering angle kit on my car (60 degrees or so of steering angle). There would be no rubbing without the kit.
