18" Hyper Silver VMR 1701 on Cashmere Silver 135i

What's up guys? I just got myself some Hyper Silver 1701s for my 135i. I thought I'd just share a couple pictures, as it's hard to find pictures of rims on cashmere silver 135is. I don't like how much the tires are stretched, but I'll take care of that once these ones are worn. Thanks for looking!

Offsets:
18x8.5 ET45
18x9.5 ET50

That looks damn sharp. I still wish that I would've went with the Cashmere Silver. Are you running the factory sizes for tires? I replaced my runflats with Michelin PSS (225/40's on the front and 255/35's on the rear.). I'm looking at the 18" V701's and VB3's.

Thank you much for the compliments. The cashmere silver is pretty classy looking imo. I was lucky to find one. They are the factory tire sizes. My next tires will be 225/40 and 255/35 like yours. Just a warning, if you are looking for gunmetal finish, VMR has none of them in stock for any of their rims in 135i offset. I wanted gunmetal at first, but I ended up settling for these. Thankfully, they turned out pretty good. Now I just need to tint my windows and install my yellow HID angel eyes, and I'll be done with my exterior mods.

Care to post a close-up. Would love to see how the wider tires fit.

Same wheels I'd like to get for my 135. Looks like they fit pretty well, I was afraid they'd be a bit aggressive. I highly doubt it, but you getting any rub? Definitely need more tire, at least on the rear.

Man, looks like they had to stack the weights on that rear wheel. Wonder if that is a problem with wheel balance, or the tires?

No rubbing at all. Yeah, idk what's up with them having to use so many weights on the one wheel. I'll take a look at the rest of them tomorrow and see how they did. I'm guessing it's just the tire, and they didn't bother trying to seat and balance it in a different position.

Decided to run out there tonight and look:

Front Driver Side: 8 weights @ 1/4oz = 2oz
Rear Drive Side: 13 weights @ 1/4oz = 3.25oz
Front Passenger Side: 11 weights @ 1/4oz = 2.75oz
Rear Passenger Side: 19 weights @ 1/4oz = 4.75oz

So, it doesn't seem too bad other than that one wheel. The old set seemed to have a similar amount of weights on them. Thankfully, the shop I go to seems to have glued them on there very well. Hopefully, they won't fly off too soon. haha

Thanks man! I really liked the 264s when they were matte. I just didn't think they fit my color of car very well. haha

Those weights won't last long like that on the rear wheel. The color looks great.

Yeah, it's quite a bit, but not the end of the world. I will be getting 225s for the front and 255s for the rear when these wear out.

215/245. I'm not a fan of that much stretch. It's an acquired taste I guess.
