New shoes for wife's car

After looking at a number of alternatives, went with Renn Motorsport RS-51 (19 x 8.5 & 19.9.5) & Continental ExtremeContact DWS (245/40 & 285/35) from Sonic Tuning who I met at The Bimmerfest a few weeks ago.

These wheels are strong, light and I think they look great. Together with these new tires it rides and drives like a new car. Huge step up from the stock 237s and 245s squared Conti run flats.

Sonic Tuning did a great job and have really good prices. I will be going back for other wheels and tires in the future, might even go with a JB4 and watch the install so I can quickly remove and install myself if needed.

Looks pretty good for 19s. I think the thin spoke design makes the wheels look bigger.

Thanks guys, with the drop it sits pretty good and there isn't too much of a gap.

JB4 would be a great add, she would actually appreciate the extra boost.
