Apex EC7 in 18 inch

So after a lot of faffing around have decided on Apex EC7 to fit to our 3.0si coupe/ motorsport suspension

So firstly what colour silver or antracite? I do prefer shadow chrome / hyper black but naturally not available on the EC7.....our car is midnight blue and very dark on it too.

Secondly our Apex guy says 18x9.5 ET22 on 265/35's for the rear. After reading all the comments on here surely that is going to be a bit tight? Not lowered or on coilovers.

I've got these sitting in our garage but the rear rims are more suited to the previous generation of the Z, Z3 M coupe, my personal opinion what do you think?

Comments welcomed please,

I went back and forth on color and while I normally steer away from traditional silver, I actually thought that was the best color for EC-7’s, especially if you have a dark colored car. The silver really pops and highlights the spoke concavity.

I ran 17x9.5 et35 ARC-8 on my old 3.0si with 255 R-comps and thought it filled the arches nicely. Dropping to 22 offset and adding wider tires is pushing it imo.
