Wow, car looks great!

On another note: I remember drooling over your zhp back in the day on e46fanatics, just now recognizing that screen name . Looks like a lot has changed since then. Congrats!

They offered to refund some of my money so I decided to keep them. I sent the rear two wheels back to HRE to have them refinished and they came back like brand new wheels.

So yes, I did want them in 11", but the 10.5" worked with the tires I already had so it saved me some money.
What vender? Why are people here so protective of the venders here, even when they get screwed over??

Probably no spacers with a +22 offset on a 9.5" wheel.

OP, those wheels look great. Love the BBS FI/HRE+Arkym/Klassen style of wheel. I know Vorsteiner makes one too, but I'm not sure if I'd rock their version personally.

I'm sure your 10.5 inch wheel looks fine, I doubt anyone can notice the difference, and no life-or-death need to go for maximum wide. Very clean.

Firstly, this is the image section of the forum, not the wheels and tires section of the forum where people go to ask the same question over and over again. Secondly, this thread is about Arkym wheels, not even about OEM BMW wheels. Thirdly, this thread is about images of Arkym wheels on an M3, not about ZCP wheels on an M3, let alone anything. Fourthly, a Google search could have easily answered both your questions, as demonstrated below.

http://bit.ly/ONSRgm


Fifthly, those answers that were found on Google come from this forum, so you could have searched the forum. And finally, there is a whole thread dedicated to spacers that EAS has created.

very nice...thats funny the vendored said the 11's wouldn't fit. They must have had a crazy off set like 19x11(+20) or something.

One of my favorite wheels. BBW FI & HRE P40S are my other favorites.

Very nice! I love that they have the tried-and-true mesh look but with a little twist to change it up a bit!

Beautiful set up! Definitely looking at gunmetal color for my next wheel set up. What suspension are you running and what's the drop in the front and rear?

No spacers, but had 15mm on stock ZCP wheels when I had them on.

It was AUTOcouture.

The reason I didn't mention them initially was they were able to work out the details to ensure I was happy keeping these wheels. They also did not try to deny the damages and brush me off after notifying them.

All in all, I was a little disappointed I did not get what I initially wanted, but the wheels do look great after all the little hiccups I had to deal with.

I saw the Vorsteiner ones too. But I couldn't pass up on the Arkyms due to the fact they are made by HRE.

Yeah, I actually do not mind the 10.5", but I don't have the option of running 305's.

They didn't say they didn't fit. They told me they were 19x11 by mistake.

The car is only KW Sleeve's. Lowered to about 5mm left from the maximum they can lower.
