Jlevi SW | E92 M3 18" Style Wheels - In 18" or 19"?

Hey guys
We have the opportunity to be exclusive on this wheel... I know you guys want it in Gunmetal... but here's what I'm wondering....

Do more people want it in 18", or in 19"?

These would be for the E90 and E92 non M.

Prices would be probably:
$850 for 18"
$999 for 19"
+ Shipping




Thoughts?

19" would work for me. I prefer silver/hyper-silver/polished or machine finish as an additional color option. 35ET front, 40ET rear. Who would be the manufacturer?

The manufacturer is a reputable company overseas, which we cannot disclose. The wheels will be TUV and JWL/VIA certified, the facility meets all ISO regulations, etc

The wheels are also TPMS friendly

Good stuff Now, I have seen a number of threads where our European friends need the actual TUV certification paper for insurance purposes in their respective countries - not that it matters to me, but would these wheels have that TUV paperwork?

The TUV certification takes significantly longer than the JWL/VIA.
First we want to get the wheels in and begin selling them in the US, but in the meantime, we will ship them to the TUV testing facility and get that whole bureaucratic process moving, so that we can provide TUV documentation as well

18" for me. I track and autocross and drive on bumpy streets, so 19" is not suitable at all for me on all three counts.
