Default Picked up some Mille's

Got some MM2's. 18's, not sure on the width. Dad picked them up for me since I'm at school. $180 Pics of the test-fit when I'm home in a couple weeks.

What'd you get Paulie? No more black contours for you?

Dad just sent me the widths. 9.5" rears, 8.5" fronts. Might need a little stretch

Of course. That is, if they even fit in the wells with those tires. I think the rears are 255's, and I rubbed with 235s, so we'll see

Moar pics when I'm home. They may get mocked up on moms Z3 if they don't fit on mine. I think the rear tires need to be roasted

Yea, you're gonna have roll the rear fenders slightly. I'm at 8.5" right now, and it's like 1-2cm away from the fender. Pay the shop a few to do it for you. They'll use a head gun to keep the paint from cracking, then roll it very slowly.

Yours are 8.5's?

I'm already rolled slightly, and I'll just do it more myself if needed. I've got a heat gun, and the paint isn't all that great, so I'm not too worried. I can't wait to mock them up, they're gonna look SO much better than my Fox Evo 6's.

Then you should be good to go.

Your current 5 spokes don't look that bad at all really. I like em.

Yeah, they're curbed pretty bad though, they may get refinished this summer as well. I'm ready for summer, sick of school

you'l be fine with rolling it yourself, I have never seen BMW paint chip off, only cheap Honda paint when I rolled my buddy's Honda Fit. I'm running 18/8.5/225 all around with a slight drop, and I dont rub at all, did not roll my fenders. I also have 17X9 rims that fit in fine, but I do not know about if they were 18s. I think you should be fine though, you got all 4 with tires for 180? Better deal than what I got for my 18s

MM's are soft wheels. Be careful with them.
