VMR makes some good looking wheels, but they are also seriously heavy. I'll pass. I actually think a fully color matched wheel or a dark gray like BBS LM-R's look really good on SG.

You might want to take a look at Forgestar as well... Here's a few pics:

This is an Apex wheel in hyper black, really more of a gray.

Thanks for the input all. Just haven't found the wheel/finish combo that cries out to be mine yet.

I honestly think you can't do better than the ZCP 359's on Space Grey. They compliment the car extremely well.

Avant Garde makes a version of that wheel called the M359 wheels, that I would suggest looking at if you don't want to pay top dollar for the real competition wheels:

Actually, most OEM wheels are heavier than the VMR lineup.



The VMRs are a great value for your dollar. Moving to a forged wheel (HRE, Volk, etc) will definably save some lbs off, albiet at a higher price tag.

Simply choose within your specific budget.

I like the OEM look, I love the gray on the inside of the 220M's, perfect match to Space Gray. ZCP wheels are just classic. If you want a super aggressive look, the black ZCP style wheels are pretty mean looking. I like some of the tinted brushed and gunmetal wheels (HRE & MORR) too...hard to beat your 220m's though, it's an awesome wheel!

kinda partial to black 359M's. These are Vader Black (Gloss). I'd get Satin Black if I was to do it again. Of course after 3 days they're closer to matte with brake dust.

Taking delivery of a space gray 335is in mid January. As you may know it comes with shadow line trim, black kidneys, black side mirrors, and I am getting 35% tints and the CF performance rear deck lid spoiler. I'm very torn between all black bbs ch-r with the black caps and white "Motorsport" writing versus brilliant silver finish. Only other mod i plan is suspension.

Any thoughts?

There's some pics of a sg in a hanger floating around here with silver/brushed BBS LMs that look t!ts. Not a fan of black rims. The silver/brushed look will really pop with sg.

This is all I could find.

I think silver or some variation of gray looks best. Black is overdone and looks kind of blah to me.

This would be a decent weight actually for an OEM wheel in its size. Of course, on an M3, this wheel would require a 30mm spacer for a nice fitment, and that would add like 2 pounds at least. But I agree, they make great designs, and yes, are a good "value" wheel.
