Beautiful wheels beautiful car. You've got to be happy with those. Prefer them to your previous set if I'm honest. Are you still running the spacers you had previously?

Agree with Pen, think the wheels look great! Prefer them to the BMWP items

Thanks guys, I'm pretty happy with them! Will need to sort the tyres in time as they're a bit old and 2 different brands front/rear. I wasn't sure on the colour in the ads but once fitted they tie everything together - the front grills and rear darklines.

Wheels specs are 18x8.5 ET43. No spacers currently. Front is a wide fit but pretty close to the strut so I think I'll fit a 3mm spacer there for peace of mind. I think I'll try my 10mm spacer on the rear (from my previous set up) and see if there's any scrubbing. If there is I may source a 5-7mm spacer like sootyvrs had on his set up as I think the rears need a little pushing out.

I still like the BMWP wheels I had but have always loved the ACS Type 3 so jumped on them when they popped up for sale.

What colour are the ACS wheels finished in?

Apparently they're BMW Chrome Shadow - to my eyes they look similar to an E39 M5 colour

So I tested fitted 10mm rear spacers to the rear and went for a drive. No scrubbing yet... will leave them on this week and see how we go! Equivalent to 8.5" ET33 on the rear now... oh and I also fitted new Bridgestone RE003 235/40/18s all round:

Thanks mate. I think I'm all done for cosmetic mods now!

Now to start saving for a Quaife...
