Which Rims for Jet Black e90

Which rims would you recommend for this car? I am looking at CSL Reps in Gunmetal or m6 Reps in gunmetal, but wanted to know if yall thought a different color would be better, or a different rim. I also will be purchasing KW V2's.
Thank you
Izzy

That's a tough choice but I think I prefer the look of the M6s if you are going to do the gunmetal color.

What's the difference between Staggered and Non Staggered, and would you recommend Matte black? or gunmetal for sure. And 19" or 20"?

I personally would go with the gunmetal CSLs on a darker color car, or a black CSL on a darker color car as well:

Staggered means wider wheels in the back. Most people would just go with the silver but if you want black wheels, go with the time attack version.

The M6 reps are only available in 19's and 18's for the E9x fitments. The 20's are only available in 5 series fitments. So I would go with the 19s with the KW.

If you have a sedan, CSL reps. If you have a coupe, then M6 reps.

Depends on what you're looking to spend. I would go with either Michelin PS2 or Nitto Invo. PM us for pricing.
