Congrats, bro. They finally arrived.

Just curious. How do you transport the wheels to the auto shop? Beg they are not easy and don't think you can put them all in your F10.

Also, are you keeping the Morr centre caps or switching to the OEM?

As long as you are not putting Merc or Audi caps on them

Yeap, one of Jxnco's criterium for choosing his rims is the OE center caps. Guess this still stands.

That's true. BTW, the Forgestar center caps are different in size from the OE. Even if you keep your OE they won't fit the Forgestar, have to order special set from them.

Some people prefer other colors for the caps and roundels, like me. I purchased a set of sapphire black stickers for the roundels. Have not put them on yet. May be later in one go.

Will be going the all black (or most black) theme. May be not mlai's cup of tea.

jxnco,
You getting a set of wheel locks with them? With the wheels so nice, I really don't want to see your car like this on the street

haha, that's in the states, is it?

I don't have wheel locks now. But the tire guys told me the locks are useless for the thieves. They can unlock in no time.

Easy. Use 5 different sets for the different holes

Thanks guys!

Added more pics. Forgive me for the yellowish tone. I have warm lighting at home.

1st pic shows concavity for the front. 2nd pic is the rear. Not sure if you can see it clearly from the 2nd pic, but the finish of the spokes is different for the front and sides. Front is machined with a slightly glossy finish. Side is somewhat like stock color. Quite cool actually.

RC3,

yep I probably will switch to OE caps one day. But for now, I think I'll enjoy the Morr caps. They actually look very good. It's embossed and the color is similar to BMW's. Was able to fit all 4 wheels in my car but had to take them out of the box. My backseat is covered with cardboard.

Wheels have a lead time of 60 days. Shipping takes around 5 days via Fedex.
