Post subject: Torn on which wheels to keep...need opinions

I bought another members black wheels and now I'm worried I've gone too far and blacked out the car too much. I still have both sets of wheels and just need some nudging on which set to keep. Opinions?

I can definitely feel a difference in the tires and the lightness of the black wheels, just not sure I'm crazy about the look.

This is a square 18x10 setup so the fronts stick out a little more than I would like, but I bet this would make the car a track monster.

Thanks for the opinions

Neither. The 10" wheels look stupid on the front though, so the others are probably better despite being 20s.

I say the 20's because they fit the front fender-wells better then the black wheels.

This is like a presidential election. I dislike the three-piece-looking wheels more.

I also find the smoked corner business upsetting.

well, if you slam and push camber all the way in it'll look hella aggressive and fit.. but then you will change tires and that'll hurt your head more than this decision.

Maybe you can find someone that has your new set in a better offset/size. Then you could swap out two wheels and run a staggered setup. Check m3forum or bf.c

The first ones only because they fit in the fender wells.

If the shoes fit, wear 'em! Definitely the first ones. The second set kinda reminds me of a front-wheel-drive car at the dragstrip. Blecch.

Hey guys, thanks for the input but the black wheels are already gone. I sold them back to the guy that sold them to me so he could sell his car with them on. I'm back on the 20's and looking for something different to ride on.

Somy: Not a big fan on the apex, but thanks.
