1 new wheel or new set

So it's been a while since i've posted...here is my dilemma. One of my tires busted on the M and my wheel cracked in three places (M6 Rep TA). The wheel is discontinued, so I thought about buying the matte black one and having the other three painted like it. The offset of the new one would be off by 2mm. Would this be a problem? If it is, I will have to suck it up and get a new set.

I'd try and find one of your weels on ebay or the like. The only less-cheap solution would be to buy 2 new wheels with matching offsets for the rear and then paint 2 of your best rims to match and run them on the front.

Are you running a square or staggered setup on the M and which one (front or rear) cracked?

2mm is very minimal and you wont notice a difference cosmetically or performance wise, but I would recommend getting a pair with the same offset.

So I'm sort of talking myself into getting some new wheels now. I'm liking the v701s. Anybody have an opinion on color? I was thinking matte black or gunmetal. I have an IR E46 M.

I think Hyper Silver or Gun Metal would compliment Imola Red really nicely...

Ill shoot you over a PM with some pricing.
