Any idea what type of wheels these are?

This is an 08 E92 M3. I'm most likely going to get this car (my first M!), though I'm several hundred miles away at the moment and am just going on pictures taken by a trustworthy friend.

Can anyone tell what size wheels these are? I searched around looking for the design, but was unable to figure out what it is. Was it offered in black, or was this painted?

Thanks so much for your help.

Hmmm....haven't seen those wheels before.
How about asking the seller?

The seller isn't actually the original owner--just a liaison for the owner. I can certainly ask; just thought I'd try my luck here first.

Thanks for the reply!

I thought they were ZCPs, but the ZCPs have 8 spokes while these have 7.

I checked out the Breyton GTPs, and it looks like that may be the one. I don't know much about two-piece wheels, but the Breyton GTPs I saw had polished/chrome lips, while these are all black. I guess that's probably a pretty easy thing to swap.

Thanks for the replies.

If you purchase the car I would ask for the stock wheels.

What makes you say that? Just curious.

Just wondering what people think in general about the look. Found out they are 20" with Nitto Invo tires.

It's a 2008 6MT with 20k miles--wasn't a daily driver.

OEM wheels are not available.

Are you concerned with looks .. or quality ...different wheels have different levels read up and draw you own conclusions..

It's weird to say he "spared no expense" and got pretty inexpensive wheels (and painted the OEM brakes?), but overall it is a pretty nice looking car and wouldn't stop me. I like the look of the black breytons on the AW car better than stock personally.

Also, did he paint the calipers yellow or what? Actually looks decent in that pic but our brake calipers are ugly.

I'd buy it.

So, the general consensus is that these are cheap wheels. I'm a bit clueless to aftermarket wheels (trying to catch up on research as I write this), but I definitely am not able to look at a wheel and determine if it was expensive or not. What clues you in?

I think the earlier post about spared no expense was agreeing with you Porschefile. He said spared no expense and said that wasn't the case here.

Yes, the previous owner painted the calipers yellow. Agree that the calipers on M3s leave a bit to be desired when compared to Porsche.

Pretty sure I figured out what the wheels are--MRR GT-7.
http://mrrwheels.com/gt7.html

Found it by doing a quick search on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/19-BMW-E92-E...ht_7099wt_1163

That link is for the 19" version, though 20" is what is on the car.

Just found out I'll be able to get the stock 18" wheels with the car.
