i'll send you a pm with pics .


edit: just posted pictures of the wheels. here's the link:
http://s1177.photobucket.com/albums/...atch/m3wheels/

the pictures are
front left - 6th pic
rear left - 5th pic
rear right - 4th pic
front right - 3rd pic

the two wheels on the left pretty much have no curb rashes. the ones on the right do, with the rear one being the worst cuz it's curbed all around lol (1st pic). the front right has a pretty bad curb in it (2nd pic), but other than that, those are the only curbs. i don't know why, but when i bought the car, the two front wheels' lips are faded. they don't have a gunmetal color to them compared to the rear, not sure if you can see it in the pictures. let me know if you're interested!

anyone care to help me with a fitment question?

i want to run alphards, which are 5x112; 18x8.5 et35/18x9.5 et40. i'm guessing to run these i will need to use adapters (don't want to mess with redrilling, etc.). the smallest adapters i've found were 20mm, so mounting these would be et15/et20. do you think i could pull these off on my car (looking to run a stanced fitment, i don't mind some camber and stretch)?

Im currently running OEM M3 wheels in staggered fitment with a 225 40 18 tire and i dont rub with just a fender roll. I think with a 225 40 18 tire, add some camber for the rear and it should be no problem. Plus your fenders are cut so it should be not be a problem.

thanks! sounds good. alphards are actually plan B right now. plan A is to get a set of ACS Type 2s, which i'm working on right now. hopefully i can sell the style 5s in time to buy them before someone else does.

Ordered new lenses, LED license plate lights, and Helios 4300k angel eyes from Khoalty.





IMO these are better than the Orions. The Orions are brighter, but the fitment on these did it for me. I also like the color of these. I was expecting more of a yellow/amber color, but they turned out to be a nice white color. I didn't really like the blue tint of the Orions, imo kinda made the car look ricey.

gotta fix the curb rashes on these. any recommendations for shops in the bay area?
once that's done and red BBS caps are put in, they'll be ready for tires. planning on 215/35.

whoops, sorry no updates been busy with school and such. i will be ordering tires after i take the ACT hahah (oct 27). in the meantime, i'm trying to find a place that will be able to repair the curb rashes. been looking at wheel techniques but still have to hit them up for a quote.

i've been playing around with my camera dolly and shot this earlier. i didn't try much lol, so it's whatever. excuse the dirty car.

Thanks! I feel the same way every time I look back at old pics of them. They turned out so clean. Probably one of my biggest regrets is selling them.

Hopefully I'll have the CH's on next week. I'm bringing them into Wheel Techniques to get the curb rashes fixed, then gonna mount some Nankang 215/35 once that's done.

Dropped my CH's off to get fixed at Wheel Techniques. I'm only fixing the curb rashes. I wish I could've done brushed aluminum, but I didn't have enough money haha. So let's take a moment to appreciate these M3 wheels one last time before they get taken off lol.


crappy spot healing on the curb rashes LOL

And just for the hell of it, the fitment I could've had with my Style 5s :
