Looks like rims are too wide for the tires. Do you have plan to replace the OEM tires?

The tire to fender gap is too much, definitely needs a drop!

Nice choice of wheels. I've always been a fan of the BBS CH rim. You definitely need to lower the car, looks like a 4x4 now...

As far as tires go, I recommend NOT getting Nittos. I had Hankook Ventus on my ride and had to switch to Nittos since the shop couldn't get Hankooks in my size on such short notice. Big mistake IMO, the Nittos don't grip as well as the Hankooks, and are more expensive too...

looks great!

I always love BBS wheels -- extremely well made and the design never goes out of style.

Looks great. Tirerack is closing out the P Zero Nero summer tires. They may be for 18" though.

Are those wheels staggered width? The front's look really wide or something...

BTW I love CH's just trying to figure out why the fronts look the way they do?

Wheels look great on your car! The offset looks alittle too aggressive for the car though. Definitely have some major rubbing lowered with one or 2 people in the back seat.

I admit, I was pretty skeptical about how this would look but I think they look clean. Now to lower and that will be tight.

Just an FYI. With the wider tire up front and now sticking out from the wheel well you will be prone to rock chips on the side of your car.

Bro those rims are HOT i like multi spoke wheels just get a nice drop and get thinner wheel like front 225/40/R19 back 255/40/R19 and it will fit perfectly with the no finger gap. people have different taste and some people here on this board aint feeling your rims. I think they look good. keep it up =P

so looks like those are 35 offset I assume? front's gonna be a little wide when you lower the car tho. just a friendly warning.

Not feeling them on a W204. But can't beat your price. They look more at home on a VW or E46.
