Need rim ideas...help

Iam looking to buy a set of 20 inch rims for my e92. Iam stumped on what to get, i want a clean looking wheel with the biggest rear lip possible...doesnt need to be forged as i live in canada and only have them on 4 months out of the year...would like to spend no more then 3000.00 with rubber.

My car is black if that maes a diff...and i dont want black no gunmetal wheels....prefer just a polished aluminum look with a chrome lip.

Let me know your idea's...post pics, brand and websites.

Thanks.

I am in the exactly same situation as you... under 3k with rubber.. and all the criteria... it's hard to find, and I have done some research see if it's useful for you altho none of them are my fav choice..
you can go for the M6 miro, VM V715, TSW Indy 500.. they are around the budget and have cleaner look compare to the other very busy multispokes..

I bought 19" CSL replicas almost immediately after purchase and put PS2s on. I hated the RFT! I love the look of the classic CSL design on my coupe. My wheels look awesome, but they're cheap. They're light than OEM but did have some blemishes if reviewed closely. What did I expect for $1000? Well, I have now been turned onto Morr Alloys out of Florida. They make high quality forged wheels that combine my two favorite things...the CSL look with concavity. I'm torn between the VS7 or the new VS8. I was quoted $2650 for the VS8s. Are they iForged wheels no...I don't have $1200+/wheel to spend, btu they are WAY better quality than both my OEMs and replica CSLs. Check out Morr Alloys. I'll keep you guys posted.

If you really have your mind a few sets of wheels that are more save up for those.

I've "settled" for wheels before instead of spending the extra grand for the one's I really wanted. I regretted my decision and learned to get what I really want.

So you want a 20" deep dish great finished wheel...

Well I'd suggest the Marcato wheels. They may be a little over budget, but I think I can hook you up Retail is pretty high.. but I'll take a very nice portion of it off.. PM me if you're interested:

That's a tough price range for a set of wheels as you aren't quite at the level of a 3 piece forged but above the replicas. If you are looking for a deep dish, here are a couple of options I'd recommend:

Hamann Style Race Edition Wheels



EX-M1 LM Style Wheel



H Style Wheel
