Hmm, tough choice for me, its between the

17x8.5"(x4) Breyton Inspirations ... $1,108.00 (tirerack.com)

[or]

17x8.5"(x4) BBS RA's ... $1,196.00 (tirerack.com)

with

245/40/17 Perelli P-Zero Nero's
[or]
235/40/17 " "

I like the Breyton wheels better when it comes to looks, but the BBS wheels are stronger (ive heard) and lighter (by 2 lbs.)



What tires will you use? I hope my setup will fit. I dont want to roll my fenders but maybe i will if i have to :P

PLEASE let me know how they fit and your thoughts on them and...

congrats!

here is a m3 getting it's fenders rolled:

your probably thinking of the BMW M Paralells wheels. Those are Breyton Inspiration aftermarket wheels.

But yes, they do look similar.

What tires will you use?

PLEASE let me know how they fit and your thoughts on them.

Also, be prepared to roll your fenders. I was looking at my 205/60/15's and i think the wheel and the tire combined is only slightly smaller than a XXX/40/17. In addition, I am planning on running 245/40/17 rears, (and possibly fronts) and it really looks like they are going to rub hardcore.

Do it professionally or do it yourself using the right tools and extensive research..:

1 A fender rolling machine (hard to aquire)
1 heat gun.

(not a baseball bat and a hair dryer) Many people who use this method end up cracking their paint from not heating it enough or rolling their fenders too fast.

Either way, be careful!
