looking for some 19" or 20"
stock. or something gunmetal/polished lip. no gawdy chrome or black. get them custom painted if you have to. youre in a 06 M...youre baller status you can afford it.
and 5 spoke pls
brushed aluminum face with a polished lip
I would buy those stockers from you if you want to sell them.
any specific wheels?
how much did you pay for your M.?....I'm looking around for one now.
Work VS-KF or Equip
Work Euroline DH.
sorry to thread jack but does rim and tire size really make much of a diff. when dealing with the car's power
Larger diameter wheels will slow it's acceleration.
Only get bigger rims if you just want it to look good.
Get lower profile tires if you want it to perform better.
well the car is quick enough as it is but I am a real estate agent not a race driver so I am not too worried about acceleration - the prie of the 19" tires warent a jump up to 20" (which are cheaper) but looks are important - I am looking for something a little on the deep dish side.
I got mine for $56,000 because I got all the options
uh no. its the weight that effects it.
in the dark silver/grey ONLY....only nice rims you posted
Weight is obvious. But if you have two wheels of the SAME weight, the wheel with the larger diameter will slow the car down more than the smaller diameter wheel due to more rotational inertia on the larger wheel. This is high school physics I believe (inertia = mass * distanceFromAxis ^ 2). And going back to your weight argument, most larger diameter wheels will weigh more than their smaller diameter counterparts as a general rule of thumb. Of course there are manufacturers who specialize in light weight wheels of even large sizes, but as we well know, the average shopper will prioritize 'looks' first and thus the general larger-size-usually-means-more-weight holds true in most cases.
I was thinking about these
volks or advans FTW
RH J5s Thats what i put on my g35.
thats a nice size dish - what did those run you and do you have a pic of the car with the rims?
i bought them used online they were on someones g that was forced to sell it. I paid $2000 but they're over $3000 new. The fronts are 19x8.5 and the rears are 19x10.5.
My pics suck but i cant find my digi. You get the idea anyway.
Anyway RH makes a few different models with the same size lip/dish
cant go wrong with works =]
Works wrapped in Falken Rubber
or Volks...Dont put RH's on that Fuga...It deserves something better than that
HREs are not the end all be all of wheels. They're overpriced like a son of a bitch
