I've spoken with Discount Tires and have been given a few deals. My options of rim are konig feather or Torch. I like them both, help me narrow it down to one :cheesy:

(Black or Silver? I have a liquid silver mz3 sedan). Size will be 17x7.5 with 42 or 45 offset, dropped on RM1.25. (I'll probably dip them too every now and then). thanks guys

no, I'd like that too. A dark gun metal would be awesome. Plasti dip is your friend :cheesy:

Black Feather's will look awesome :biggrin:
Someone on the forums has the feathers in black with a silver sedan. It does look sick, but I think I may go the way of the Torch. Although, feather's are lighter than the torch by a few pounds (I thinks).

Really? I thought a 45 would have helped compared to the 52 that we have. I don't want to put spacers because I heard it's not necessarily a good idea for cars in general. Do you have pictures of your car? I'd like to see what the 35 looks like. I think the Torch's come in 42 and 35 offset and in 7.5 to like 9.5 widths. Just don't want to be rubbing or anything...:no:

Do you rub at 35 offset and are you lowered?

I'm only dropping 1.25.

From what I've gathered from reading and help from everyone, is that with the 1.25 drop, I should b good in terms of not having to do any mods to fenders n what not. But, I think with the 35offset, I may have to which is why I was going to go 42. But, your ride looks sick with your almost flush look.
