D-Force LTW-5's on E90
Finally got some rims for my car. Got a killer deal on 5, yes I mean 5 rims and Dunlop Direzza's that only have one track day on them for $850 delivered to me. May not be the best looking rims, but their light, stronger than Kosie's and were cheap so I couldn't pass them up. There 18x9's with 255's all around and weigh 18.2 pounds each. So right now the front rim was barley touching the shock so I only test fitted them and snapped a couple pics. Will pick up some spacers on Tuesday and mount all four on and give the rims and tires a good cleaning. What size spacer should I go with? I was told 5mm would be fine but they also have 3mm spacers and my thought is the lighter the better...

I have few more but the sun was at a bad angle and the one I posted is the only one that came out decent. Plus I only mounted one side for the pictures since the fronts need spacers to be drivable. They also need to be cleaned pretty bad as well. I should be getting some 3mm spacers form HPA Autowerks tomorrow, thankfully there only an hour away from me and I'll clean them up and post some more pics tomorrow.

Snap, I've got some 17x9s in the same colour but they're for my e36. However I had a puncture and had to order 4 Michelin Super Sports so I used them for a couple of months:

Heres a a couple pics of my 335i with ltw5's. The second pic is featured on modbargains and mach V's website for advertising. im pretty satisfied and they feel very light. Fronts are 18x9 and rears are 18x10. I also run 5mm spacers up front so they will clear the struts.

@Stucks Car looks great, appreciate the info on the spacer size! I went ahead and got some matt schnell 5mm spacers today and mounted the fronts. I'm glad I went with the 5mm instead of the 3mm. Had I gotten the 3's I'm not sure it would have gave me enough clearance between the rim and strut. Didn't get a chance to wash the rims or car yet but as soon as I do I'll post up some more pics. Thanks for the help guys!

Looks sweet and they are really light for their size and width. I put mine back on my e36 last week
