New car

520i sophisto grey
Just got the car not too long ago
Things done:
installed M-tech kit from a local bodyshop
lowered it with eibach pro kit springs
threw on an AC rear lip
Placed an order for Arkym front lip (should arrive in 2-3 weeks)
here are some pics (apologies if pics aren't in order):
P.S. any recommendations on what type of rims i should get?
my budget is around $3-4k

Great start. HK$3-4k for wheel only? No tire, right? Kind of tight. Only choice may be cast wheel like Breyton. Just don't go for Morr....

Wakuwaku:70k nt with tires
Simonlam: i like them quite a bit, very quite and the ride is really smooth. Im just worried that when i install the arkym lip, it will get scratched bc tw roads are very bumpy.
Btw do any of you know how to photoshop? Was wondering if i should powdercoat them black or gunmetal =[

What size is it on your zito wheels? 8,5x20 or 9,5x20? And what offset do they have?
