What do you think SGM w bronze Volk Racing TE37's?

Hi I've search for a while now and I cant find any pic so I'm trying to guess what a set of bronze Volk Racing TE37 would look like on my SGM e92 m3.

The sizes are 9.5' front and 10.5' rear in 19' size.

what do you guys think??


Thanks

There is a SGM coupe with Volks (not TE's) in Bronze, but you would have to dig to find it...

I'm a huge fan of Bronze wheels on SG, but not a big fan of Volks TE37. I say go for it with the combo!

That is 1 badass car! And so may variations, every pic I see it looks like a different car... Need to do a compilation thread with all the looks.

Do it! That color combo looks insane! I know a lot of guys on here dislike JDM wheels on the M3 but its a great looking wheel that is strong, lightweight and IMHO has a timeless design.

This is the car I stole the wheels from. I think the front Mu's with the slotted rotors really make the wheels POP. Looks very similar to the trophy rotor.

My personal favorite for the Volk Te37's is Diamond Black. Had them on my E46. Will be on the lookout for the same on the E90.

I tend to be very picky about these types of things and I would recommend against it. It's not that they wouldn't go, it's just that it is an out-of-place color in relation to everything else. You could pull it off if you have the beige interior, however, since it is along the lines of a similar color element.

I've been searching for 2 months...

Thanks for everyones input! To give a little background I've decided to SC my e92 m3 and obviously I called Andrew from IND to place my order. BTW IND= Intriguing - Noticeable - Distinguished ! Back to topic my factory 19' 220's just aren't cutting it anymore. First I wanted some LM's but BBS doesn't have the right offsets for our cars. i.e. either factory like or aggressive but nothing in the middle.. I then thought BBS FI but the price tag is about the price of the VT kit so i passed... Lastly I always had the Volks in the back of my mind.

I ordered the wheels in Bronze but I guess somewhere down the road if I really dislike them I can always have them powder coated. Maybe red to match my interior? Will post up pick as soon as I get back from IND witch should be mid January.

Thanks

You did a fantastic job with the E46

What do you have planned for the E90?

OP, sorry to thread jack!
