Which wheels would you choose?

So I have a stock e92 335i pre lci pictured below.


I honestly do not care for these wheels at all. I was thinking of powder coating them gloss black and getting spacers for the rear for better fitment. Then I checked craigslist and found a couple viable options.

Choice A: Breyton Imagines 19x8.5 in a square set up. Offsets are 36 all around. I would run wider spacers in the rear and probably still PC them gloss black or gunmetal as I am not a fan of the chrome look.


Choice B: OEM M3 CSLs 19x8.5F 19x9.5R. Waitinh for the seller to get back to me with offsets. Already matte black and staggered. This isnt the actual pic of them, guy has them on his e46 M3. But... I feel like EVERYONE has these on their e9X now. Not in the real world of course but on the forums it's all I see.


Neither set up will be permanent. Just something to change the look of the car while I focus on performance. Keeping me satisfied for a year or so then I can work on the wheels I really want. Any input will be appreciated, thanks.

That's how I feel about the CSLs too. My only concern with the Breytons is how large of a spacer would I need to make them work in the rear. Gonna test fit them 2moro evening before I make my choice and measure then.

Everyone on the INTERNET has CSL reps because they look fantastic. That doesn't mean they are too common in the grand scheme of things. Even further, who cares if they are too common if that's the best look out of the three?

I sure as hell wouldn't pick something that looked worse than CSL reps just because they would be less common and "unique".

I'd go with the Alufelgen SF-71's if you were considering CSL reps. They look similar but with more concavity. But if I had to choose between these two I'd say the CSL reps.

CSL are played out, don't get me wrong they look great, but if it was my choice I would want something that stands out. I'd go for the Breyton

#1 is at least something different for a change. CSL's will become even more popular as more of the HS kids start getting into e9X's. Watch.

I think it's obvious if your saying it's not gonna be a long term setup. Just keep the wheels you have, PC them black, they'll look decent for the time being.

Why limit yourself to these choices?

Of the 3 I'd go CSL's. By the time you unmount, remount and PC your stock wheels you could practically buy new wheels. I think the Brey's spokes look to small and the necessity of spacers will make it look like they don't really fit.

Getting either set for $500. Breytons are in excellent condition and have 85% tread left on the tires. I just found out that the CSLs have plastidip on them as well as the rear tires will need to be replaced. Oh, and the reason I even started looking was because my 2 front tires (RFTs btw) developed air bubbles and need replacing. $300 bucks or so. I thought "F it, let me see if I can find something I like more for a little more. Get a new look and tires in 1 shot."
