im a fan of the lighter gunmetal color and as long as it has a polished lip..SSR satin finish is the perfect color IMO..these look darker, but in your case it will look good and fit into your white & black theme. Either way you can't go wrong. OCW has some nice styles. I like the OC-5 ones. THe five stars that kind of angle outward..the manarays are hot tho, nice choice

Gunmetal can look good with both the lip polished and without it polished. I think gunmetal gives a good contrast for your car. Just don't go too dark.

Sweet man. I saw very similar wheels on a Galant yesterday. Needless to say, they seemed out of place (a bit too agressive for that car).

Am going to order my tires tomorrow, should come in either same day or day after tomorrow.

DEPENDING ON PRICE:
I will either go for 225/40/18 in front and 245/35/18 in rear, now if the 245's are too expensive I'll go with 225 all around...

WOW. HUGE DIFF. Both in the looks and handeling. I absolutely love both the rims and the tires. THe Tires handle like a dream. Every day I take this turn at about 40 mphh hour and my old tires would squeak and my car would slide just a bit, but I took that turn at around 45 - 50 mph today and it was as if nothing was happening the tires took the turn very well.... I am very impressed by the tires.

Now the rims I just love the new look.

Thx once again Mike!

Guys, OCW is one of those companies that goes WAY OUT OF THERE WAY to help there customers out. Mike was more than great and helped in ANY way he could, he answered my questions if not instantly the next day.

There was some issues//delays due to paypal and Mike was VERY understanding and never complained as to why payment was taking some time, in fact he actually explained to me why it was taking some time and told me there was nothing to worry about. If I were to do it over I would. The packaging on the wheels was very impressive. He provided EVERYTHING required to put the new wheels on (center caps BOTH OCW and BMW, lug nuts, valve stems).

Once again, thx for everything Mike and OCW
