FYI, the M6 wheel (Style 167M) and the 19" 335is wheel (Style 313) are two different wheels with two different sizes.

I put a set of HRE's on my M6 and then took the stock M6 wheels and put them on my M3. I already had the wheels powder coated semi gloss black when they were on the M6.

whatever you did it looks sick. i was actually thinking about buying a new set of HRE P40's in black but for $6000? I think the M6 rims look better on the M3 too

To those of you who posted pics, looks great, I like it a lot. I definitely think that 5 spoke wheels can be pulled off. We are wrapping up a few M3's as of now. I'll post pics once I get them.

so any M6 rim can fit on any e92 M3 with no problems? No spacers needed to make it look flushed? Can i swap my tires off my current rims and put it on the m6 rims with no issues? Why didn't I think of this before!?

Exactally...If you want to ensure no rubbing you need to install the factory sized tires for the M3 (245f/265r) on the M6 wheels. You do NOT need any spacers either.

I also installed the Dinan Stage 3 susp. on the car after a month or so and it still didn't rub

The biggest problem with these is it makes the rotors look way too tiny! Too much open space in the wheels so unless you have a BBK IMO it looks really silly. The OEM wheels are nice as they disguise the rotors a bit more and they actually look beefy with the OEM wheels.

I know 255/35 and 275/35 also fits on our cars with 167M wheels.

I cant believe this isn't a popular setup. I think the style 167Ms are way better than the 19' OEM stock

Looks 10 times better with the original m3 wheels man-I don't know why people like to put other M wheels on other M cars. BMW usually knows what they are doing when choosing a wheel design. It is not random as they pay attention to every crease and how each piece of the car flows when designing a car, I do not have any doubt they incorporate the "right" wheel based on this design. This wheel just looks like it was not designed for this car folks.

I cant remember exactly but I do know the M6 wheels are heavier than the stock 19" 220's. I did weigh them and the were all in the high 20lbs range (27-28ish)
