DPE SP-C16 on KW V2's

Finally finished refinishing and resizing these wheels from an e60 owner. Had to buy new lips and barrels, only thing I could salvage were the faces and front barrels, because of the e60's offsets. Got them pc-ed gloss black lips and semi-gloss faces. Front lips, 2.5, rear's 3.5. Semi/shallow concave on both front and back.

20 x 8.5 et 19 26.4 lbs 255/35/20
20 x 10 et 35 27.7 lbs 285/30/20

I think those are the right offsets. I'll have to double check later.

So the million dollar question is, do I keep them. They are far the most aggressive wheels I have, and I do like to drive pretty spirited. I had the rears rub just the slightest on bumps. I did have the old tires/wheels in the back as well. I could always adjust the coils and raise it too.

It's a different style for me. I've always had monoblock 7 spoke wheels. So a 8 spoke, semiconcave wheel with a lip has a little bit of getting used to.

If I decided to sell them, do you guys think I could fetch at least 5K with brand new Hankook tires, TPMS, and pretty much brand new wheels. Let me know. Thanks.

I'll get some better shots tomorrrow in the day. Getting dark and hard to see the wheels in the shade on camera.

Looks awesome on ur white car! Very flush, I would keep them if I were u. It's hard to get 5k$ for slightly used wheels & tires nowadays.

Yeah I figured. I'm liking them more and more! With forged multi piece wheels at 3K+ and tires 1K. Would 4k be doable if I so decide to part ways. Trying to decide before I mess them up. One day old and 10 miles in.....

Wheels look sweet! I'd keep em'! Selling for that much when you can get a brand new set is very slim. Usually what happens when you try to sell.

They ARE brand new, pretty much. But I'm leaning on keeping them. Just wanted to see how much they're worth to people. Most people I know don't want to spend big money on wheels, me included. So just trying to get some info from those that have more experience. Thanks tho!

decided to keep them....for now some dirty car shots, only because I'm not even sure when I'll get a chance to wash it, with a bunch of stuff i'd bought but never had a chance to install.
