    well since i cant get replacement lips for my lorinsers, and to behonest im sort of getting sick of them(but still dont want to sell em)

    so im thinking of upgrading to 19s this year.and i found pretty decent bmw mags, they are off x5 sportpac edition.
    19x9+40front and 19x10+45. dont worry i will use 25mm adaptors anyways to make em fit my 5x114.3 pattern. so it will make em +15 front and +20 rear, and they will fit under the guards easy as with jusr rolled fenders and camber:)

    i know my car is not a platform and never will and i dont even think so im going with vip style anyways??more euro i guess with those lorinsers atm

    anyway, i did a quick chop and i actually like it.

    I like it, do it.

    As long as they fit close to or on the fenders, they will look good

    well yeah, my car so can do whatever i want.
    but i still want my car to be in a "vip" category somehow..but i want to go different way, so i can stand out from the crowd with this one.
    i can simply just get some eurolines and call it a day, but nah.
    but im still interested on what people have to say about vip platforms having rims like this, is it still vip or not? thats the question...im not asking if my car is vip, i know its not:)

    yeah man with my calculations they will be perfectly flush with a little bit of camber.
    just did all the measurments and if i can get those mags they will extend extra 14mm front and 24mm rear, and i know ive got 15mm space upfront(with fucked camber) and about 19mm space rear, with stock camber settings atm...

    i think that looks good, do it, and as for the bmw rims i have seen a couple of cars in the japanese vip mags with bmw rims on em and they looked real good, so IMO do u and dont worry so much about brands or labels

    i agree with "f**k labels" but even if you want to worry about them you're in the clear. the sentia is a proven exception to the platform "rule" and bmw wheels infiltrated vip long ago.

    just one example but there are a few. i'm not a bimmer fan but their wheel designs are killer.

    yeah i saw this aristo few years ago and thats what inspired me to go BMW ways,
    i like those m6 mags but my brakes arent that huge, so wont look that great, thats why i rather get something with bigger spokes.

    well i guess i will get them this year. ive got a few things planned for sentia this year, so all wish me good luck:)

    thanks guys!

    its looks reminiscent of an Audi S8 and they're definitely a gangsta and worthy ride...
