    Default How does SW feel about chrome???

    I picked up a set of 17x8.5 et13 and 17x10 et20 MK Motorsports in chrome the other day. I have the caps as well, just need to source some set screws yet. I like the wheels, but they'll be for sale soon. I also still have the Gotti's, but I'm currently trying to get one of them fixed. Either way, they'll be for sale soon as well. Once I get both sets sold, I'll be on the lookout for something in 18". Here's some pics with the MK's installed...










    Wheel specs:
    Front - 17x8.5 et13 w/10mm spacer, 205/45/17
    Rear - 17x10 et20 w/20mm spacer, 235/40/17

    And just for fun, here's a crappy little 1st-3rd vid...

    MKs are hot, chrome not as much. Could be worse though.

    So you're going to sell them?

    I'm usually not really a fan of chrome, if the whole wheel has to be shiny, I prefer another method that we in Germany call "Hochglanzverdichten". I'm not sure what the english term is for it...

    In this case though, I really like how that looks. Really fits the 5.

    chrome looks really good if it is done right, but looks terrible if its not done right.


    in your case, you have done it right.

    looks good!

    Looks good, would look better in silver/polished but not bad at all.

    I prefer painted and polished, but I like those rims on your car. I'm curious though, are there centercaps?

    I'm not a fan of chrome usually, and I like the Gotti's more.

    That said, they look freakin' hot anyway. Your car pulls them off, I really dig the look.

    I **** chrome as much as I **** carbon fiber...


    BUT in your case I actually like it! you pull it off well and it doesn't look badat all! good work!

    couple questions.....

    Are the wheel specs before or after spacers?

    Also when you sell them how much would you be looking to get?? I like the wheel itself alot!
