My Ride: 330XI R1200C
crappy pic, but got the HM2's installed, and I love it..

Picked up a set of used HM2's a few months ago!
I know they are heavy, but I have always loved the way they look. Also, I have an XI and not a dedicated race car. So I'm not super concerned about getting the lightest wheel, to help me get a speeding ticket... LOL
Anyway, one of my winter tires lost a fight with a pothole the other day, and summer tire season came early.. Installed the HM2's yesterday!
Tonight I stopped to get gas, and when I looked at the car at the gas station, it was like; I f-ing love the way she looks.. so I snapped a quick picture...
btw, 18" HM2's with 235-40's (almost need 245-255's on those wheels) on H&R lowering springs (still debating over getting thinner spring pads in the back or not.).
