Show off your wheels

OK I searched and I couldn't find a dedicated wheel thread.

I'm thinking of getting new/aftermarket wheels for my 08 E93 but need ideas. I'd like a lip but see few wheels with a lip for this car.

Post pics of your wheels please. I'd like to get some ideas.

Show off your wheels

I sometimes feel like mine is not too far off that. I don't know how people ride on the 19's. It's a pretty stiff ride on 18's.

I got rid of the RFTs for Conti DWS and installed Koni FSD shocks. Made a huge improvement in both handling and ride quality.

Not an E93 but just to give you an idea. Hard to see the wheels, these are iPhone pictures.

One shot is before lowering, other after dropping her on H&R coilovers.

Not exactly one of the lesser 3'ers. Maybe not safe for 56K / Edge.
