No - they're the real ADV.1 5.1's. Mine don't have the concave...and I don't have an M3...but I'm trying to create a similar overall effect. We'll see...

Note these are 19x8.5 square so the rear concave is limited vs staggered.
The concavity is not too bad for being 8.5" width at ET35. Might pick up a set but with 9.5" ET 35/42 in the rear.

Just a quick note (lots of variables) - I've got a slight rear rub happening (on moderate suspension load - e.g. bumps, driveway entry), non-sport pkg, 245/35/19, et35, WITH a 15mm spacer, Falken 452 (which are pretty square).
Might have to roll the fenders...or get a smaller spacer. Depends on whether the rub is at the fender or inside at the wheel well. Not sure yet.

Looks very deep dish compared to other pixs.
Nice wheels, V705, simple, easy to clean, but kind of plane.

That's what I like about them. "Simple" yet has an "edge" as you succinctly put it!

I just ordered my 19's a few hour ago.

I was thinking about going with the D-Force LTW5 Wheels as they look nice and are very light compared to the other rims within my price range. Downside was 18's were the largest.

I'm still debating what tires to order.

Nice! As far as what tire to order, that totally depends on whether you want a summer performance option or an all-season. Popular all-seasons are the Continental DWS and General G-Max AS-03. Popular summer tires are the Hankook Ventus V12 and Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

V705 is definitely one of my favorites for Bmw, clean and simple design!

Totally agree with VMR! V12/ Falken Fk453/ Michelin PSS is the most popular tires on the market right now.

Got my VMR 705's (19') with Falken FK-453's installed yesterday . They look sharp. I love 'em!

I'll try to post a pic or two soon.

Correct...I think they might be Forgestar wheels or other.

Here are a couple of photos I took (kind of a "rush job")...I'll take more photos again.

I couldn't be happier with my rims..LOVE 'EM!

Yes I know, I definitely need some bigger brakes..those are next on my list.

Definitely will. I really like the simplicity of them. My wife today was mentioning how smooth the ride is.
