The new E9X M3 wheels (style 220) are really, really nice. I even like the 18" wheels on the new M3s too, but the 19's are better. My vote is for those.

I like to replace my wheels (162s), but I'd prefer lightweight (20 lbs or less) first then style. Style is still very important, but I'm not willing to get heavier wheels just for looks. I love the look of the 162s, they are just so damn heavy.

I wish that the new M3 fitment would work on the E90. I think it is very, very close, but still too little ET in the back. I figure an M3 owner ordered the 18's with plans to get aftermarket wheels. Then I could score a good deal on the wheels. In that case, I'd be willing to pay the weight penalty for the style and genuine OE wheels.....

I agree on the M3s. The pics by the OP in the link provided look great!
I really like my wheels now but it's time to change it up.

First choice would be the E92 M3 reps, then the VMR CSLs.

I messed up the poll.
"Miro" reps should have been "M3" reps.


If you vote for "other," what do you suggest?

Thanks Scott! Ok, it's probably safe to assume that the other "others" mean M3 reps too.

Thanks guys. Great help and the M6 and 269 performance wheels are good suggestions.

So far it looks like the 189s are definitely out!

Please keep the poll going. If anyone can photoshop the M3s or CSLs onto my car, I would really appreciate it.

Looks like the M3 reps take it. They are an extremely classy style. You can't go wrong with them. Let me know if you need some help with those.
