Pearlescent white 264s on BSM plus some BBS

I had my 264s powdercoated pearlescent white and they are amazing.

While they were being done I borrowed the BBS REs off my last car (330) which I sold to a friend of mine. The BBS are 18x8 et35 front and 18x9 et45 rear with 225/255. I'm lowered on Eibachs. The fronts rubbed on more spirited turns.

Z wheels are powdercoated gloss white with clear coat. BBS are powdercoated anthracite with clear coat.

Get some good pictures of the white wheels!! I toy with the idea of doing mine in white too.

Awesome! I like to see custom setups like this.

The only thing that would hold me back from going this light is brake dust, and I'm neurotic when it comes to clean wheels.

Either way, looks good. Let's see some better pics!

Super cool looking. I'm digging the contrast, and I think your clear side markers help the overall look.

I posted some better pictures although we didn't notice the smudge on the camera until after so I might try again next week. Thanks for the comments everyone.

The brake dust is a problem but it always is, even on the anthracite BBS. A nice thing about the pearl is that it seems more silver when dirty as opposed to looking like a dirty white. It really goes well with the shape of the 264s.

I love this. Glad I did a search and actually found someone that did it. Thank you for posting. What would something like this cost vs. buying new wheels?
