Glacier Silver F31 M Sport on square 20" ATS Racelight Grey **Updated with pics**

So I sold my 403M's and today I finally got the new wheels. Dont really like multispoke n mesh wheels and wanted something special with twin 5 spokes, I believe I'm the first and only one with these wheels

ATS Racelight Grey 20x8.5 ET35 (11.7 kg / 25. 7 lbs each, ok in my book)
Michelin Pilot Super Sports 245/35 R20 (10.4 kg / 23 lbs each)

I actually ordered the wheels in satin black, so what I got was a mistake. But, a pretty mistake I was one who totally dissed grey wheels on silver cars in another thread, but dammit this actually looks good

Went with a taller profile for extra comfort n rim protection, the fit was millimeters away from failure but it does work without issues.

Finally getting the pics up now, hope they´re viewable
(Any tips for creating a little space between the pics?)

Looks good, I'm taking delivery of my GS F30 M sport next week and have been trying to figure out if i wanted to go black, gunmetal or something else with the wheels -- i think this color is the answer. Cant wait to see more pictures.

Thanks for all the positive feedback

After a few days of driving/playing and just living with these wheels I can honestly say the comfort is now far superior than with the 403Ms on runflats. And this has to be from a combination of lighter wheels plus non-rft. I seriously think I could have gone with the OEM profile (245/30) and still had a more comfortable ride than with the RFTs, but with all the potholes on these shitty roads and this bein my daily driver I still think its safer protecting the wheels with a bit more rubber.

Handling: It´s an awesome setup; the extra width in front gives you that extra turn-in it is sometimes lacking and it´s just so much more planted and stable now. Love it

Performance: Since this setup saved me almost 40 lbs unsprung weight vs the old one it really does feel lighter and shoots off quicker, I do notice a significant improvement in acceleration at speed so I´m really pleased with that as well

In general I think people underestimate lightweight rims and tires, not that my rims are the lightest but 25 lbs a piece is almost 4 lbs less than the 403M´s.

Just put the pics up but dammit they´re too big and there´s no space between the pics, should I resize and re-upload? What size is good?

Yes, but those cost about x4 too!
And with F30 offsets you won't get them as concave as those in the picture either.

Aren't those the flowformed Vorsteiner wheels?
Last time I read about them they were about 4k. And with taxes and shipping that is TWICE the price at least compared to these in this thread.

they are VSE003 , both of them are running approximately 4k...i am not sure about the shipping and taxes though.

different ppls have different taste, i do like the style and look of the ATS racelight but i just can't live without the aggression of the deep concave rims.

For the OP it would cost twice as much to get the Vorsteiners so it is a no brainer for us.

I too love concave rims, but they won't look anything like that on a F30. You can't get that concave wheels on our cars unfortunately.
