Miro 111 vs Avant Garde M359 vs lm-r reps

Hey guys I have about a week or 2 to decide...

Never seen avant garde m359 but the miro 111 have decent concavity in the rear and I like the machined finished on silver barrel.

I just discovered the vortex tuning lm-r reps and they're pretty nice reps, almost unnoticeable to the untrained eye imo

My car is titanium silver and will be getting 19"

Thanks for the input guys

I personally think M359 looks more aggressive.
Also The quality on Avant Gardes are far superior!

The Avant Garde M359 wheels are low pressure cast which do utilize the same manufacturing process as your OEM wheels. The Avant Garde M359 wheels do feature a concave design as well. Here are a few more pics of the AG M359 wheels installed on one of our local customer's car for you to check out!

Miro 111's are low pressure cast and were one of the first BMW wheels to be low pressure cast. It really comes down to what kind of styling you're looking for. OEM+ or something a little different And I absolutely love the way the M359 turned out. It's best ZCP rep out there.

Thanks for the correction, post deleted.
And since they are both low pressure cast, I say def go with 111's.

I've got the M359 in black. Absolutely love them. Only thing is they need a 5-10mm spacer in the back to really get them flush.

Neither the Miro 111 nor the Avant Garde M359 wheels fit the OEM BMW Center caps.

Similar to OP, was looking for wheels as well. After looking at various photos on the forum as well as vendors, I decided on the Avant Garde M359 in matte black.

Now the wait is just gonna kill me. Gotta say thanks to **********s.com for the helpful answers regarding my order though.

You are correct. Miro did a change to the 111's so that they now accept the OEM center cap.

I want it flush without using spacers. Will the M3 fitment offset 25 fit without any rubbing on stock suspensions?
