Am I the only one here that prefers the look of 17 inch wheels? I like to see some rubber! Nice looking wheels.

is the moda badge flush so you could put a bmw badge over it? i actually ordered 18's today and the guy at tire rack was sure i could pick up stickers for the 72mm cap easy, which i can't but as i look closer it looks domed. is this the case? will the stickers work? i'm thinking about ordering the 70mm set and making sure to set them center.

Sorry, but I think 17s look dorky. It's like you're wearing flood pants.
OEMs with winters work just as well in my climate.
