I think the rs-gt's look great, one of the better looking wheels out there.

I like your idea for going with the te37sl. They look great, easier to clean than those rsgts, lighter, will have a better ride with 18s, can run a square set up. I think you should do it.

Thanks, yeah the rsgt's can be a pain to clean love the way they look but was thinking of going lighter wheel with a wider tire, traction off the line is pretty bad, or just getting a set of PSS's for the rsgt's, curently running PZero's.

I love the looks of your RS-GTs. Sizes/offsets? Tire sizes? Suspension changes? Thanks.

I can see how they'd be tough to clean, though...

They are great looking wheels but they do not look aggressive enough on the M3 IMHO. Not sure if it's the narrow width, design or offset or all of the above. Personally I would sell them and go with a set of CH-R or the TE-SL's as you suggested.

Here's a great pic of what your ride would look like with the Volks. Perfect combo: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=619949

those are e92 non-M fitment wheels

I had 19x9 et310 fronts and 19x10 et23 rears on my e92 335i before my M3. You definitely should sell them and get wheels with a better stance.

Keep those. They look better than TE37 on the M in my opinion.
