Going to have to wait for pics. Just put them on last night in the dark and it is cloudy/rainy out today. Sorrrrryyyy. I started this thread more for the weight aspect than the look aspect but I can understand!

Like mentioned, they are et42 with an 8" width, so that puts the fronts out a bit more (maybe 1/2" or 13-14mm) and the rears are out maybe a bit less than a 1/4" or 6mm from stock. The BMW centers don't fit but Enkei provides a reasonable looking cap.

I figure with the reduced offsets and the common 8" width, this should go in the right direction to minimizing understeer, and I just went up to the 225's on the front and left the rear width stock with the same intention. I'm more interested in balance than outright grip. A bit at a time. Will report out more as I get some miles on them.
