E92 - Ideas for Wheels Peoples

Before Gaydon..
Me to public: 'No, I love my current OEM 230 wheels, think they look awesom and I'm not changing!'

After Gaydon..
Me to public: 'Yeah, they may look nice but I'm thinking they need to go for something more fresh!'


See what this place does ... mine field for non-modders to become influenced LOLLL - but loved the experience of Gaydon and will bbe going for years to come, touch wood!

So now I begin my search and I need ideas please. I've decided it has to be between Concave or Deep Dish so there's a starting point. Car is Titanium Silver and I'm having is deciding what would work best on Silver car. Some say go for a contrast and get Grey wheels or so.. some say stick with the nice silver

To put it out there... I personally do not like full black wheels.. IMO they look smaller than is and dirty almost all the time so that's out of the picture, no ifs no buts.

Will also be open to P/X my current ones but not in a rush to sell just yet..

I think they look cheap and nasty.

Not sure what I done, but my phone nearly slipped out my hand and I pressed the screen catching it. I think I've accidentally voted for this thread to go on the homepage.

Im hoping to have a set of avant garde m359 wheels from the US, as the concave looks much better than any available here in the UK and made better....

but that doesnt help you as I have an E90 lol

what about these - http://www.bmautosport.co.uk/showroo...h=51_23_122_32

Cheers guys I've seen both websites and am using that tonight to make my decision making easier by checking out pics etc but any other pics you guys came across either here or from those across the pond with concave / deep dish?

I went the 'OEM' kind of look after looking at lots and lots of (IMO) nasty aftermarkets...

These have a nice concave on them in real life... have a nice anthracite back and polished front...





I've never seen them on an e92, so not sure what they would look like... just putting forward an option

Personally speaking I don't like the CSLs LOL nor the standard M3 wheels *puts on flamesuit*.. want something a lil different but not too OTT. Hard to describe lol.

Depends on what your budget is as the ADV rims are awesome!

Just seen these that would look cool on your car....

sorry dude, I could only do it as a one shot deal for myself but you'd need to factor in the tax man!

Best price I had was 1150US$ (760.00)

See I'd save on freight costs etc which would make the price more attractive but the tax man will still want his cut...

Many wouldnt bother, but im tight lol

yes yes sam! lol

if you are looking at something a little different as gregg suggested these ones
http://www.bmautosport.co.uk/showroo...h=51_23_122_32

they havent been done yet on an E92 and you can get Dips to colour the centres any colour you want! make em a little more unique!
they have both the dish and a concave! best of both worlds and they are at a good price too!

get them wrapped in Falken 452's and you car would be lookin sweetttt!!!

yea stay away from CSL's etc just too common at the moment...

*readies flame thrower* - nah... each to their own... I went round the houses looking for something that suited my tastes and my car. Found that the M3/M6 reps looked really nice on the Monaco Blue... and I am very happy with them on my car... and not seen another e90 with them on which makes me even happier...

I agree with most on here... csl reps are common as much, and when you look at the quality of them compared to the originals... it just makes you want to cry...

The wheels you currently have look great.

So far all the non-OEM wheels posted look like the sort of clownage you would expect to see cruising around bradford housing estates.

But I do know of a car up in Aberdeen to have them in 19":

I like the idea of getting the centres done a different colour!

I think they could look really special for very reasonable money....
