Thanks. Yes they are OEM style 311's 21x8.5 et25 fronts and 21x10 et41 rears. Tires are michelin pilots super sports 245/35 fronts and 285/30 rears. I bought the wheels from a member here selling in the marketplace last month. And tires I bought from discount tire.

They came from a 7 series. Here is a pic on an F10 from the forums that sold me on this while I was debating getting it.

Hey. Any advice how to get caked on brake dust off? Tried using dedicated Armor All wheel cleaner and scrubbed with a sponge and toothbrush but it's really stuck.

Guess this can happen if you don't wash wheels too long. Just switched my summers back on.

oh wow! my wheels are protected with Dr Beasley's wheel sealant so that the dirt and brake dust doesn't stick to my wheels and comes off very easily when I wash the wheels. have you tried any of the Chemical Guy's wheel cleaners?

Looks great! How much did the full clear bra run you? Did you do paint correction before having it done?

Clear bra with 10 yr warranty cost me $ 1900 including stage 2 paint correction & touch-up paint.
Ceramic coating full body with 5 year warranty- $1000.

I Used VividVinyl CF wrap and I think it looks much better. Install was easy with a Heatgun and some patience. (I had plenty, The wife however not so much. I guess she thinks this kitchen Island is only for cooking lol!) If anyone does PlastiDip or PC their wheels on a Alpine White or Mineral White 5er please PM me pics I cant decide If I want to do Black, a darker Gunmetal color or something entirely different.
