Thanks. Really like the design and the fact that there's some concavity with the wheels. Boing-how is the ride on the MRRs compared to 21s. Think I seen that you had them before. I know theyre not 3pc and that usually means weight. Just weighing options and trying to get a little knowledge on everything. Good not going white face E..not a good look IMO

I think that style wheel will look sick on your car! Color match the centers to your car with black lips. I'd also wrap the roof of the car in black with a black roof spoiler. I'd also switch out all the emblems to carbon fiber.

They're sick man! That X6 is ridiculous too, all the bodywork they did on it... Damn! :D

I agree, if you can get your hands on some of them, definitely do it :thumbup:

Honestly I didnt notice any difference, i had 21s yes and i had 2 different set of tires on my 21s and the more meat on the tires the more comfortable it is but its not enough to notice it much.
So yeah honestly switching from 21s to 22s I didnt feel any difference. Looks changed alot and i love the current look, thats the look I wanted and im glad i was able to get it.
I love my mrrs, not problems with them, been great wheels so far. Im trying to stay away from potholes and stuff.
The 128s or 22s is the way to go with the 7s. Just my opinion.

polished center with chrome lip would look good on yours but honestly I'd leave you wheels alone as is, im sure you are tired of the same look but im just saying.

21s are great wheels, i didnt wanna let go of mine. LOL it was hard no joke but once i did and got something better im happy and glad that i have made the change.
Whats funny is we have a 750 in town, black with all the factory chrome and stuff and he just recently got 21s on his and everytime i see him rolling by im thinking MAN those wheels look sick!

the 128s go nowhere unless your trying to swap for the CV1s :D. would be my backups incase of any mishaps if i get new wheels. Is 125 a wheel a good price for refinishing?

what im saying is since you bought the car recently keep the 128s for sometime until you get really tired of them. IF you get new ones keep the 128s just like you said, for backup

Just got off the phone with AudioCity. They are really pushing these AC Forged wheels and the prices are good. Anyone have any knowledge on these rims. 3pc Designos for 5200 w/ tires. I may just go that route with the 128s Boing so does anyone think 125 a wheels is good price for refinishing.
