    You know more then i. I know they belong on a M3 BMW of some type. I dont reconnize the "J" symbol on them though. THey look pretty cool too. Im going to use these as my 18s for when i piece together my CTS-V upgrade.

    Test fit with the 18" BMW rims. As soon as the other tires get in, ill mount those on. These rims are WAY too thin and the tires arnt wide enough. but for free i cant complain again lol

    thats all i can say






    Definatly looks better with wider tires. Gotta get the fender lips rolled for sure now
    I had to grind the outside of the calipers though due to the C5 brackets pushing the calipers out. I might have had to grind like 1mm if that but nothing crazy. I thought about putting a spacer but that would have pushed the wheel out from under the car. definatly looks good i think. !8s will come one day, but for now, for all the work ive put into these rims, im gonna enjoy them.

    those came out nicely! now you just need to get the hood painted and you'll be good to go.

    thanks guys, it was definatly a process. these needed alot of work. the lips were gouged up and the spokes had chips everywhere but a little grinding and sanding.... ok ALOT of grinding and sanding lol... and these things turned out ok. I was even suprised when i finished clear coating them.
