Yeah...I am a huge fan of the BBS CHs and have owned a few sets. Problem is they are cast/heavy. The MEs are similar but strong as .... and light!

Volk should consider engraving the VOLK name round the hub again. I believe the ME is the only wheel where they did this and for a limited run.

I love me some Meisters.
I'm considering going with them for my next set. Almost bought them this time around but changed my mind last minute.

Meisters are too old school for some of us. I ran these in 2004 when I won first place at HIN in the Bay Area. They were sweet looking back in the day and still are now but not something I would go back to.

I just think it's a timeless design, hell look at the amount of people still running LMs on their cars, Jesus had a set of LMs on his first whip

Thank you EAS for the crazy color suggestion!
This looks excellent... what suspension are you on?

Question though, don't you guys think 18" is too small for E9X since they come with 19" optional stock?

18s actually look right on the E92 M3 and 19s or 20s look a little to big unless you are running a lip, diffusor, or sideskirts..

i love 18s cos they are functional. plus real race cars always have nice meaty tire sidewalls.

18s give you a better ride on rough pavement. 18s are less prone to wheel damage when you hit a pothole or ride the rumble strips on a track. 18s are lighter than 19s.

I think it depends on the wheel, an 18" Monoblock on meaty tires looks just right, but a 3 piece with lip will probably look tiny (especially cause the face usually isn't that diameter")

exactly. Don't listen to the others. Some 18s look small. Example: the foregestar 18s look great cause the spokes go right to the edge of the wheel unlike the Apex wheels (look side by side you'll see). My Works, being a stepped lip are really an 18" center section so they don't look big and in fact kinda look smaller than OEM GTS wheels at times. 20s are def a no no, they just look too big and belong on a 5 series IMO not a performance car.

TE-37 is probably the one wheel that looks good IMO, I test fitted my old Rotiform LHR onto my car and the concave+lip looked diminutive on such a big body (comparing the e92M to my old e46M)

yeah e46 m wheels don't cut it. Rears are eh and fronts need a big spacer to look right. A te37 in +20 or less all around looks killer IMO


I bet LHR monoblocks would look sick

in the right sizing i believe so too, i was running 18x10+15 fronts, so Im pretty sure it would have transferred over nicely to my e92 fronts.

They were just a bitch to keep clean >.<
