Not my style, but I think they would look a lot better if they weren't gold. Either way, if you think they look good it's your car in the end...go for it

Edit: I think the tail lights and corners should come asap before the wheels

A little too bling for my taste, but they'll fit fine. If you like 'em, go for it.

I like those for an AW car. Going from the OEM silver/gray to the gold with chrome lip on my style 30s really livened up looks of my car.

I am also planning on doing that same mod for the wheels. Planning on keeping these as winter wheels.

Nope that's a good wheel and tire size. One concern is hub bore, it should be 72.6mm. Make sure that's the right size or you could get vibrations and be putting too much shear stress on your lug bolts.

And repaint the centers silver......

Then it's probably 74.1, sized for E39s. You'll need a 15.5mm hubcentric ring.

Thanks for the correction Chad! I was wondering what the hell I was missing there.

ECS Tuning has a pretty good deal on hubcentric rings.
