Hey everyone, wanted input on what looks the best / best fit for my 2007 335i sedan. Mines sapphire black with the saddle leather, i wanted to pick up a set next month, but can't decide what do you guys think?

Linea Corse z2s

Beyern Mesh (silver with polished lip)

VMR 715


I really like the look of the e90 with a lip on the wheels, any other options let me know.

Pictues always help.

Thanks guys!

I have Beyern, but the LC z2s is better for sure.

z2s, i've seen the wheel on sedans in person and it flows really well with the car. Breytons on the other hand make the car look too busy IMO.

I would honestly say the MRR GT1 If your looking for lips:


They are also Low Pressure Cast, so they will put up with some abuse

let me know if you need some help on these,

The LC Z2S or the Beyern Mesh would be my vote. Since Zoeb already posted up pics of the Z2S, here are a few pics of the Beyern Mesh on the E90s for you to check out. I'll drop you a PM with more details.

Beyern Mesh:

I think I like the LC z2s the most, the 715s are really nice but look like they belong on an audi.. the beyerns are nice they would be my second.

Anyones thoughts on skipping the whole idea of a lip and running a nice wheel with lots of concavity? like the M310 or the VMR 701?

I am kinda partial to the lip...

If you initially were looking for a lip wheel, I'd stick with your instinct, however if you do decide to go with a concave wheel consider looking into the LC818 as well:






or even the LC855:

I like the z2s design if you want a nice fatty deepdish look. For the concave look I'd go with the 818s..but I'm biased since I have them on my e92.

I love the look of the V715's, but I have had a bad time with them because of the rolled lip denting from road debris. I would go with a machined lip If I were to do it again.
