I do like the wheels a lot, just not a chrome fan (@Pillboy called it). What are they? Can you share all the specs (brand/size/offset/tires), just curious...

Too blingy for me as I've never been a chrome wheels fan. But at least the specs look nice.

I second what others have said. Nice design, just not a chrome fan. The tires look a little stretched, what are the specs?

They are Rays Nismo V2 triple chrome plated(them being chrome is the reason I bought them, they are 1 of 1). 19x9,5 +40 front with I think a 255x35 and 19x10.5 +23 rear with 275x30.

You know, I actually have the same as you. 255 on a 9.5 and 275 on a 10.5 and every time I look at my car I wish I went 285.

On my Q50 the these wheels poked a lot more then my Q60. I agree with the 285. My next set I may bump them up to 285. I’m on continental DSW06+ or whatever they called ahha

I dig em! The only reason I don’t buy chrome wheels is you have to clean the hell out of them often. Brake dust will corrode the piss out them and then they look like @$$. Since I’m too lazy to clean my wheels after a hard drive (which is more often than an easy drive), I just avoid chrome. But they look great!

I like the chrome contrast plus the design is nice. Good looking wheel honestly. I like that it's not cookie cutter black.

However, the offset for the rear looks like it's too shallow and pokes a bit. Also looks like the 275s on a 10.5 are a way to hide less than ideal wheel fitment.

Ya I didn’t want black wheels because here in Houston everyone just blacks out there cars. So the chrome helps me stand out a little bit.
Ya slight poke, once I lower the car I figure it will look better. The stretch begins right where the fender line is. It’s really not that much I don’t have a pic currently to show the “flush ness” of it right now.

I am in love with gunmetal wheels. It is getting overdone. And it is "unfortunate" that even many OEM wheels come gunmetal. And I know one day when we look at gunmetal, we'll all think 'that is so circa 2020'. But, for now, I'm loving it and I think it looks good on almost any car color.
