    If you absolutely have to do a bright color go with that blue.

    Yeah its ashame because they were all nice guys. I just dont like how I spent all that money and pretty much got no help fixing the issues. I had to do it all, and I get ignored. But at this point I think Im just better off having PTFs make me a custom map.

    Yeah Im still liking the color. I also like it toned down about with a midnight blue that I found. Its nice looking on the alpine white.

    Candy blue is cool and loud but not for everyone.

    I like the suggestion of matte, or a satin, army/dark green. That could look really cool and I have not seen it done.

    The candy blue was too loud and crazy looking after someone photoshopped it on the car for me. Then I found a dark blue color made by VMR wheels called midnight blue. And a simliar blue used by MORR wheels on their 5ht anniversary wheel and I loved the blue. But I didnt want to copy anything exactly. SO I went back to the powder coater and pick a blue that has a black chrome base coat, then candy blue topcoat giving it a very dark blue look. Which in my opinion looks pretty good on an alpine white e90. So the powder coater is actually putting 2 coats of the blue on top which he says will make it even darker. Which wont be SCREAMING at everyone, but be different at the same time. Hopefully I like it. LOL

    I finally had my fenders rolled. I was able to find a shop to do it for me. AK Motorwerks in NJ has been excellent. But Im running into issues figuring out what size rear tires to use. The fronts will be 235/35/19s. But the rears are off an E46 M3 so the fitment is aggressive at +22 on a 9.5 inch rear wheel. I was going to go with a 245/35/19 to be safe for the rear. But Im totally confused. I figured since my fenders are rolled I can maybe fit the recommended 265/30/19 rear tires. But I just dont want to mess with camber to fit without rubbing. And I simply dont want to rub. So would a 265/30/19 cause rubbing issues although my rear fenders are now rolled? Can some people with similar setups chime in?

    You should be able to do a 275 on that width I would think. But, you are worried about rubbing so go conservative.

    Yeah Ive had so many different people give me different responses for tires that Im not really sure what to do. Being my fenders are rolled I thought maybe I could get away with the recommended 265/30/19 but then I talked to a few people that still have some rubbing with that size and have to adjust camber. I dont want to do that. So i think Im going to use 235/35/19 fronts and 245/35/19 rears. DOes that seem doable to you?

    I'd ask @ModBargains as they seem to have a much better grasp on this topic.

    Go for it! You may be surprised! They are you winter setup. Have a bit of a laugh with them. You can always have them re done anyway.

    I like the look of coloured wheels too, if the colour comes out right...that is.
    I look forward to seeing them
