GT3 vs. MORR VS8.2

What are the major differences in these two wheels? They look kind of similar and I'm having trouble deciding between the two. How do they compare in build quality, weight, price, etc? Which do you think would look better on a 2010 arctic white M3?

GTS, my apologies. Man, it was really late.

Now deciding between the GTS, MORR VS8.2, and the HRE P40's on my 2010 alpine white M3 coupe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HRE, then MORR, then GTS because it's the lightest to heaviest.

This is also the order of what most people feel looks best.

Also add in HRE P40SC's into the mix which look the best IMO.

Yes, I am definitely strongly considering them. Where is the best place to purchase them? How necessary would it be for me to lower my vehicle if I get 19's?

Little known fact: BBS actually makes the BMW GTS wheels for BMW (competition wheels). The CH-R's aren't any better than the GTS wheels either, they both weigh the same amount and are certified to handle the same stress according to the wheelSTO. The CH-R's just have 14 incut spokes and the competition wheels have 16 spokes, it evens out and personally I think BMW's wheels look much cleaner and sexier, CH-R's look boy racer like. I would get your HRE wheels from RAJA@Ventureshield who you can find on the forum, top service and really low prices.

As far as a drop goes I would never get lowering springs, you're going to always be stuck with set drop with zero adjustment. It's much better to go with a fully adjustable kit so if you don't like it you don't have to pay $1000 to change it every time:

https://www.europeanautosource.com/p...leeve-over-kit

That kit is also one of the best sets of springs you can buy and not much more than a regular set of springs.

Other than that I'd just go with this exact setup:













And here are the wheels on an alpine white car (click the link due to large size):

Hope that helps.

Personally I think the ZCP wheels look much better than those HRE's. Too bad they aren't much lighter.

Public service announcement: The "GTS/ZCP" wheel is called the Style 359M. And yes, it's made by BBS.

As you were.
