She's a beauty! But again, I feel as though E92's look much more sporty and can pull off that look a whole lot better. You should have just posted the pic directly in the thread!

Again guys, thanks so much for all the contributions so far. I really appreciate it

i've also just gone through the whole thread and machined finish seems to be the best and the best of them all is the 19in M6 rep. They fill the arches nicely and with the black on the inside will match your gloss black kidneys and also your chrome window trim should you chose to keep it.

well, one pic is worth a 1000 words. Just don't paint the calipers!



however, this is hot too!

I'm with you on the 701s or Advans if they ever deliver on the 18" promise.

Are those M6 reps available in 18" or are they 19" only? What brand/vendor?

My car is dirty but I think it shows how good and appropriate Anthracite wheels are on an anthracite car. These are my 3rd set of anthracite wheels as there really was no other color for me.

Wheel style? Your choice. IMHO CONCAVE is beautiful. Love the advans and any Mesh wheels. I got my APEX ARC 8s because they're light, strong, have a great warranty and aren't very expensive.

That E92 with the M6 reps is indeed extremely beautiful, but the lines and contour of the car make the wheels more attractive on the coupe. And I've already thrown the murdered look out the window (really wanting silver contrast on wheels now), even though that second pic does look nice. To each his own

Yes, but mine would be 19".

They do offer them in 18". You can do some searching here:

I believe I have seen this car on the VMR website. This is most likely going to be my final choice. Looks great

I think the difference between Hyperblack and Hypersilver isn't too great, but it isn't too subtle, either. The car is already dark enough, and I think HS would set the contrast off nicely.

I have seen your car before in another thread, it looks good with those! I am going for a concave vs. step lip for my car, regardless. And they (VMR's) are also more wallet-friendly than a lot of other wheels I have seen that I like. Mainly BBS

A lip I'd rather have on an E92.

Well, the look is not completely murdered out



For some reason, I get a lot more compliment with these wheels, but yes, silver wheels provide a much better contrast and a better overall look.

Can't wait to pick up my SG E90 this week. If I ever get new wheels, they'll definitely be silver. I think the silver wheels just pop on this color.

Great, I am glad my Pain is someone elses gain I literally went through 4 sets of wheels in 2 months and FINALLY I got these and they look amazing on the car. Also I didn't realize VMR has my car on their site! But it's funny how they photoshop the BMW center caps with VMR ones

Is that a blue insert or some rim tape? Cannot make out what it says at the 1 o'clock position?

I believe that comes on the wheels. They are blue stickers. At 1 it says 'SA67R', which is the name of the wheel. At 9, it says 'Wedsport'.

I had Work Emotion CR Kai's on an old car and they came with all the blue stickers separately so you could put them on if you wanted.
