Settled for OEM, what 19" for E92?

Hi,

Well ive been around almost all kind of wheels for my new E92, theM6 reps, Visions, Spirits etc.
The problem is, all of these are a pain to get hold of here i Denmark and that they all end in a pricerange more or less like OEMS.

So im settling for the comfort and easiness of OEM's.
My current candidates are:

179's
Good combo of clean 5 spokes & agressive studs.
230's
Very dynamic, a little plain, feels more open than the 179.

Im leaning towards the 179 as it is less common and slightly more interessting, any opinions?

230s!!!!!

I am a little biased, as I just received the 230s I ordered.

They are awesome. I think the lines of the slightly "twisted" 230 spokes compliment the lines of the coupe. I've seen both in-person, and man, the 230's look great.

I understand your pain...but "Hard to get" followed by "Settling" is painful to hear, for rims or any substancial part. I say get what you want, it might take a while, but you will feel great when you get them.

If not, I vote for the style 230's!

I probably go with 230
but it's really a difficult decision to made.
