Different strokes for different folks, but if you like it, then that's all that matters.

Not my style, I prefer the front rims to have minimal dish and be polished but as long as you love it who cares. Enjoy!!

You'll certainly be able to find it in the parking lot! Those wheels are not my style, though, sorry!

On a positive note the tint looks pretty good, but the wheels...not so much.

Regardless of style preferences, it is very creative and nicely executed.

For the guy who said that the guys @ prestige are dicks. You maybe right. However, I didn't buy my car from them. I bought it from Monrovia bmw. Prestige Autosports is my friends shop in Upland they do car mods, they don't sell cars.

REALLY different wheels and special for you I'm sure. I assume the white on the rims matches the AW on the body. Is that the only mod? It looks stock otherwise. Do enjoy your ride, its a pretty exclusive look you got there.

Not feeling it, but it's all about personal tastes. Wheels look a tad large, 21? or they just look that way.

I'm going to be the odd man out and say it looks pretty tight! I can only imagine how difficult it is to .keep them clean, though. Better get those low dust brake pads!

Looks like something out of TRON. Or one of those pickup trucks the railroads have, with the second set of wheel that fit on the tracks. Certainly distinctive....

Is it an optical illusion, or do the rims stick out beyond the tire lip? I would be paranoid about curbs.

Yea there 22's I always do far out stuff with my cars. The people that ain't feelin it is fine. Everybody got their own opinion, but where I'm from in cali we do it big. Y'all are probably more into the stock more subtle look. Lol obviously that ain't me, I go for a more hip hop style look. Pretty much what you would see in the dub show or hot import nights. As of now I just swapped out emblems for the carbon fiber ones, tinted it and the 22's. Next I'm gonna probably go with a black top and a small rear spoiler.

It might not be my style, but I think it looks GREAT!

I'm really not understanding people's need to give negative feedback. The guy took the time to share, why not either thank him for sharing or say nothing. I don't know about the rest of you, but I love seeing pictures like this and would hate for people to stop posting.

Thanks Smedley I agree with you.. but it really doesn't bother me, I know the car looks sick and at the end of the day that's all that matters
