Talking Which rims for my m sport black lci e90?

I will be getting an m sport black lci e90 soon!

I've decided on several mods:
M3 lip spoiler
5% window tint
GP angel eyes
M3 Mirrors
Black Kidney Grilles


I need to decide on some aftermarket rims.
I have several choices if you guys could help me decide with some pictures. info. or opinions.

PLEASEEEEEE AND THANK YOUUUUUUU!


These are my options:

BMW Black 199 Star Spoke Rims.
Advan Rims.
VMR Matte Black V710 rims.

If you could suggest some other rims? I am looking for black rimssss.

Out of those three, Advan sounds like the best choice.

It would be between the VMR and Advans...part of it comes down to price but also what style you prefer.

im leaning more towards some dark gunmetal advan RS rims but so unsure.
What offsets and stuff would be good for that car?

19x8.5 ET38 and 19x9.5 ET35 would be ideal.

Do you know for a fact that those offsets will work on an LCI?

I'm an OEM type guy, so I say the syle 199s. However, these do look kind of plain. If you didn't have to have OEM, then I would also go with the Advan.

Might want to consider M6 reps. They are available in 18 and 19" variants. Open and clean. Just gotta be careful of curbs (but I like that the alloy is so flush to the tire).

My shitty picture here doesn't do em justice.... http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...72&postcount=8

Yes those offsets will work for the LCI, we've ran 19x9.5 ET33 in the rear without a problem.

ADVANs or V710s depending on how much you want to spend. The black on black V710 combo looks pretty sweet:

I know this likely isn't what you wanted but the only one I have on me and it'll be dark before I leave work (there are other E90 M6 rep pictures around). Couldn't embed the photo for some reason.

Got them from www.1010tires.com (Vancouver), they're made by Replika Wheels: www.replika.ca Not sure how they were made. Look cast then surface machined.

Go for the VMR's, I have some black VB3's et30 in the rear and they look great.

Or the volk te37's in black.. those are so nice.
