Conservative? We can agree to disagree but no need for the knee jerk reaction and say everybody when it's obviously not.

Some like to be flashy - some like subtlety. To each his own.

Those look like the cast joints by U2. One piece cast and very heavy. On the other hand, their much cheaper than multi-piece wheels.

Yeah, if that's what you like.

One thing about those (and most one pice wheels) is the illusion of a deep dish wheel.

The face of the wheel protrudes out in the center and back inward as it get towards the hoop. Convexed.

I like chrome....in moderation and on dark colored cars. On silvers, grays, etc., I think the brushed face is perfect for the car. Like STRTWYZ and sevenman's old ride! I guess you could say that I like a "clean" look, not overdone. The great thing about it.....you can do whatever you want to your car.

It's lowered from the factory with the sport package….it has a harder ride as well….tried 22s ….they make it ride even harder…. so I went back to the 19" Beyern Wheels Multi spoke (Beyern Wheels are designed exclusively for BMW motor vehicles) NO vibration at speeds 100+ http://www.beyernwheels.com/
