Thumbs up

im deciding out of 3 rims to get right now for my black bmw e36, it has smoked tail lights + smoked corners (which match the headlights now) + and smoked side markers. I'm going for the all black look. I have 3 rims i'm trying to pick out of right now

RIM DECISION

i know some of you won't like the "bling" thing im going for, but i like chrome ;o
I'm going for 19" rims.

NOTE: THE BOTTOM RIM (3rd one on site) IS A SPINNER -- THE CHROME SPINS WHILE THE BLACK BACKGROUND STAYS STILL -- would it look nice? need opinions.

GIVE ME A SHOUT WITH WHAT U THINK IS THE BEST LOOKIN FOR A BLACK '97 SPORT PACKAGE E36 BMW! THANKS!

I'm not all about the chrome bling but if I had to choose I would say the second ones, top right. They look like a rim the most to me.

Bling isn't everyone's cup of tea... but if you're gonna bling it out, go all the way..

SPINNERS for sure...

I like the 3rd one. But if the black background blocks air flow and brake dust, how do you clean it and won't if affect the brakes cooling?

You go and buy a nice bimmer, then go and make yourself AND your car look like a complete tart, not the way forward.

I mean, look at the new M3s, they look mean as anything....no bling there, is bling really necessary? Bling's almost as bad as go-faster-stripes.

NO! first of all, if you do buy some chrome tardwheels, give urself a swift kick in the nuts on my behalf. GET SOME M3 WHEELS. if your gonna put some wheels that spin and induce my vomit reflex, put them on a car just as shitty as the wheels you are installing...a honda...

I don't like chrome either. But I'd go for the 3rd one out of the 3. I hate rims with no dish.
