Let the hate begin!!!

So I have put BMW E53 style 63's on my 1 car. They are 19x9 et 45 with a 10 mm spacer and 19x10 et 48 (soon to have a 5mm spacer). Suspension is solely H&R Supersport springs. Front and rear fenders are rolled. Alignment pin up front has been knocked out. Enjoy (or lack thereof to those of you how are "track-inspired).

Other then the chrome (or polished or whatever it is) they don't look too bad. The front pull almost looks like a flare

I like it, of course I'd skip the spacers and try to fit a slightly wider tire but that would kinda go against what you are trying to do.

Yeah, not for me, but I keep looking at them. There is some attractive quality aesthetically, but I cant put a finger on it

The wheels look pretty good but I am not a fan of the stretched tire look. 235 on a 10 inch wheel?! That cant be safe...

since you asked for the hate, man that looks strange on a performance oriented bmw

the stretched tire look is just incomprehensible to me. 235 tire on a 10" wheel?

glad you like it

It's a vert, we already threw performance to the wind.

Looks great except the chrome. Love the style. Tires are also a little toooo stretched for me. I'm running the same size tires but my wheels are half an inch thinner front and back and people on here still give me flak for it

I don't understand the stretched tire thing and spending money to make your car handle worse than stock, but hey, it's your car. But just because I dislike something doesn't mean I hate it.

My nephew calls things like that 'sick'.

Anyway, it probably feels fun to drive on smooth roads, maybe a little bouncy on rough roads. I wonder how long those tires will last.
