Wheel Wednesday - Velvet Blue + HRE 501s

Bringing back an old set of wheels for Wheel Wednesday, thought I would share here.

These wheels aren't for everyone's taste, but personally I love these over the classics... Especially when you see them rolling!

HRE 501 Vintage: Bronze Lip | Satin Bronze Face | Gold Hardware

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S

KW Clubsport Suspension 2-Way

19x10 - 255/35/19

19x12 - 295/30/19

Nice, I like the way these look! You are correct in that these wheels are not for everyone, they are different enough from the usual wheels we see most of the time.

Not a fan of stretched tires on a performance car, or a performance car that's configured for stance, but to each their own. The wheels do look really good on the car!

Thanks for sharing!

Car is beautiful, I had velvet blue on mine 18' M4 CP

I normally hate these types of wheels, but for whatever reason this definitely resonates with me. Would love a bronze finish for my mineral white m3, but I don't think I could ever get myself to regularly keep these clean. Looks like a full time job.

I've always been a big stance guy, I just love having that proper look with the right fitment

Not too much change in performance in regards to highway pulls or canyon driving. Haven't ever ran 3 piece on the track though so can't comment to much about that.

I think my buddy bought your car, he sent me a pic of his line up with the signal green, velvet, and yas all together.

Bronze on white is the best. Maintenance isn't too bad, just need them properly cleaned and coated. Once the coating is on, maintenance is a breeze
