    Feeler- Looking for Input on New Wheels

    I'm in the process of deciding what to do with my current wheels and I am trying to see what else it out there. Right now I'm running custom Modulare Forged M14's in 9" and 10" respectively. I am a fan of chrome lips and brushed faces with a mesh design. I am also looking to have all the hardware (bolts and valve stem) hidden. Honestly a lot of the ADV.1 styles really do it for me, but I'm trying to avoid them and see what else it out there.

    As a reference here are some shots of my current wheels

    *rendering before the valve stems were moved behind the face of the wheel

    Primarily show, although my current wheels + tires are noticeably lighter than my stock wheels and tires (17" wheels and all season runflats). If the 30+ lbs on the ADV.1's is true for my size, that's a deal breaker for me.

    i looked on a few sites and only see a few styles i like, im a big fan of 5 star though.

    if you like the mesh look , i guess BBS and LM's (coincidence) are yor best bet for all around strength, performance and looks, but have a heavy price tag..

    i dont really know where to shop for wheels for this car, so i looked on EAS/PYspeed/Modbargains

    but your current setup is clean and classy with a sporty touch to it. so not sure what your actually looking for

    The wheels look good, stance is nice also. Looks like you have a 265 rear tire, why not go up to 275? I just did a 245/275 19" setup on my wifes car, it looks sick although she needs a new spring/shock combo.

    I know it's borderline blasphemy, but I am not really into the LM's. They are obviously nice, but they just don't do it for me. I'm really looking for something very similar to what I already have as they are just about perfect to me.

    The rears are actually 255's and I'd love to go to a little larger tire, but I don't think it will fit on my car. They changed the offsets slightly on the LCI E90's. When I took my wheels off for the winter I noticed I'm actually rubbing a bit on the inside of both wheels. I don't think there's anything I can do make that part of the wheel well larger. Also this is my daily driver

    honestly, im not a fan of the mesh on these cars, so i cant really tell. i do like, or did like the v710'a, i do like vb3's, you might take a look into the Morr's they seem to be gaining popularity.

    lso, you should be able to fit a 265 no problem, its the 275 that are gonna be too big, but double check

    you can always check out ISS forged and get the race package and you can even get titanium bolts($$$). the rims in my sig i was told that those weighed in on just under 20lbs and those were 20s but also they were a limited edition set with titanium bolts. ive carried both sets of rims that ive had from them and they weigh a lot less then my stocks.
