Here are some of my car









Enkei EKM3's 18x8 I think close to stock offsets maybe a hair more aggressive


BBS Style 5's 17x8 +20 offset... I will have more pictures and be whoring the car out once I have tires on them again

Just my opinion but it looked better with the enkei wheels compared to the BBS. But to each is own. Hell... I love stock 18's

A dropped goat looks awesome but there is no way in Hell I would drop my goat and mine is not even a DD. Hitting every bump and shaking your kidneys, taking ramps sideways, worrying about speed bumps. I had mine with a halfway decent lowering, as soon as I hit the first big speed bump scraping headers she got raised.

I received the Lovells 25/30 drop, which equates to about 1.25 inches. Its low, and honestly I had ordered the 3/4 drop.

I rarely scrape on anything. Driveways are, for the most part, a non issue. Speed bumps cause no problems either (except the HUGE 5 mph ones). I take 15 MPH speed bumps at 15 MPH and its very smooth, no scrape. I enter the driveway slow at about 5 MPH and its fine.

Really its not terrible to be low. . . you just have to drive within the rules of the road.

That being said, I am very likely swapping to what I had originally ordered (3/4 drop kit), I'm still deciding. . . its a tough decision.

I'd keep the enkei's but they're my brother's wheels I just threw them on and snapped a picture. Enkei's are also really sunken in because they are close to factory specs. And on 17s I think my car will be the lowest static gto around.

I only drag every once in awhile I'm pretty careful about it though. I had a abs splitter but it broke because I didn't tighten it down enough

I think the bbs's look 10 times better with the center caps in so that may help the final look.

I can't be careful, for some weird reason when I hit the gas pedal she just wants to go fast.

The only issues are places which I wouldn't really be going fast anyway. Like a parking lot with speed bumps and I avoid pot holes and stuff anyway regardless of if I'm driving my car or my mom's yukon.

I think personally I just don't like the look of the older style BMW wheels. On your QSM though they don't look too bad. I think the lip helps.

These aren't really "old" bmw wheels. LM's are a current bbs wheel. Mine are 100% old bmw wheels they were oem on an E39 525i with the sport package
