SSII E92 M3 on Satin Black M359 wheels

First, my disclaimer: the wheels are ZCP/359M reps made by Avant Garde (M359), not OEM ZCP wheels. I am still very impressed with the quality and feel its a great value.
Wheel specs; F: 19x9 ET-18 and R: 9x10 ET-25.
Tires: Hankook V12 Evos, specs; F: 245/35/19, R: 275/30/19.

I wanted to post these pictures because it was relatively difficult to find many pictures of Silverstone/SSII with black wheels, specifically the ZCP style (although there is a recent post by xsilvor that are amazing, found here:http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=647603). If anything, comparing the two threads really shows how SSII changes shade, mine were taken during an overcast day.

I definitely understand that some people won't like SSII on black wheels (as I was a bit skeptical myself) but overall I think it really makes such a beautiful color achieve a much more aggressive look. I will definitely keep my 220s for when I want a change... [I do know it needs a slight drop]

How could anyone NOT like that combo. I think SSII with black wheels, black badge and black gills looks fantastic. There is something about that combo that looks very classy and sporty at the same time, it is just so striking.

Honestly man, if I did not go Jerez Black that is EXACTLY what I would have done with my car...

Yeah, they definitely do. In person they look more matte, but they do give off a slight shine in a lot of angles... especially right after they are washed like in these pictures

OSS angel eyes actually! Then it will be suspension. I daily drive the car now, but won't be shortly. Once that happens I won't be as concerned about dropping it. I do need to do more research with springs and EDC, but I do plan to track it so I don't know if I should invest in a BBK over the suspension mods...

2 more questions: how did you get the BMW center caps on there? And any idea on the weight difference, if any, between these and the stock non-ZCP wheels?

IIRC the 220s are actually lighter and forged...


OP the Car looks great, first picture the car looks like the frozen polar silver lol

Just a heads up, I see you blocked out your plate on all the pictures except for the last one
