Looking good! Where did you buy your wheels from? OEM or aftermarket?

Your question confirms my goal. I didn't want it too wild. I wanted a cool factory upgrade look. They are aftermarket.

Got them at a local shop in San Diego So Bay. Found them online and my shop beat the price. They are made in L.A. MRR factory, style is GT7. The factory BMW center caps fit right in.

Congrats, those look awesome. I am getting the aftermarket itch already even though I took delivery of my car July 25th and upgraded to 20 inch 311s. My last three cars I have always changed the wheels. Kind of leaning towards the Vossen VVS CV1.....

My only concern is the 311s are a breeze to keep clean and anything else i like is NOT

Its amazing how the stock brakes don't look too shabby behind 20 inches. Nice wheels! Id love to see a rolling shot from a rear3/4 view to take in how aggressive it must look.

Like the design, but I'm not a fan of all that lip.

Same question...if so, you may run into some rubbing issues if you plan on lowering the car?

Yes sir, you have a good eye and must be a local. That gas station has Philip Rivers signature near the ATM machine inside. So he must live nearby also

Then you would likely prefer the M3 comp wheels. I am a huge fan of the deep lip. In fact, I hate that all fatory wheels- they basically have zero lip. Nothing more unattractive to me than a nice flat wheel face..boring. The M3 comp wheels at least have depth by an inset center hub. Last point on the lip.....they dont stick out and get curb rash like all the other "flat" wheels. But we all know it all about personal pref.

You would hate my Escalde 24s pictured below
