I know people say the CSL is played out on BMW's but I believe without a doubt the CSL is the bimmers signature rim.

I think they're comparable though the Miro has the perfect ET (ET33) for the e92. Not sure if ET33 is also better for e90.

Its slightly compromised for the E90 where ET30 is ideal, on the other hand, that leaves space to run 275s in the rear.

The VMRs look to be slightly more concave overall but the Miro's look more concave around the hub area. I like how the Miro's mirror the original CSLs a little better, the way the spokes curve a little. I can't really appreciate the supposed shinier hypersilver finish on the Miro's vs. the VMRs, from the pics.

Good question...these are claimed (by Miro) to be a tad lighter than VMRs. I am quite interested to know as well.

edit: **********'s table (guessing Miro's official figures) states 24.75lbs (F), 25.90lbs (R) compared with VMR's 25.7lbs (F), 27.0lbs (R)....so about 1lb difference F's and R's.

Im a little dissapointed in the concavity of the rear but I like how the design is closer to the originals. nice looking wheel.

I'm wondering how 5mm spacers in the rear would work with this Miro set for the E90, that'd make it ET28. Would it rub terribly? I know ET30 has some hairline space allowances...

Yeah the Morr VS7s have sick concavity by comparison. I'm drooling over the VS8s but they are expensive (3x more expensive than these).

no they dont, thats why I sold my vs7's. Had they been closer to the real csl's I still would have them. the vs7 is a very strong and light wheel though.

Yeah I agree but I sure like how concave they are. I do like the VS8s a lot from what I've seen though. But since my wheels will only be daily driver wheels it's hard for me to justify all the extra money for nice forged wheels even though they are lighter, stronger and higher quality.
