F13 M6 wheels on an E9x M3?

Personally, I think only 19" wheels work on our M3's visually (18's for the track). With that in mind, what does everyone think about the base wheels for the M5/M6? The only info I have is that it is forged, the fronts are 19x9.5, while the rears are 19x10.5. They go for about $900 from Tischer, but I can only assume that maybe some guys from the forums will want to dump them for cheaper than that when they upgrade their wheels. The concavity in the rears look crazy!

Usually, I'm not a fan of swapping around wheels from another model, but I think this might work. Anyone have more specs on these? What are your thoughts?

Basically look like a beefed up version of the 220m wheels. I'm sure they would look good.

Right, exactly. Same finish too. When I look at the first picture:
1) How impossibly beautiful that M6 is
2) How ridiculously concave the rears are.

Never been a huge fan of 5 spoke wheels to be honest. Plus 20" wheels just look too big on our M3's.

After scouring the M5 section of the forum, members are selling their 20" OEM wheels with tires for around $3500-3900. I would guess the 19"s will be considerably cheaper than that.

I think those would look pretty good on the E9X M3.

I'd definitely bet those would look great on the M3. They look so shiny in the pics (I hate chrome-looking wheels), but they are the same finish as the 220m which looks great and not as shiny in person. Would love to see how it turns out if you go ahead with it. The concavity is truly awesome in the rear

agreed. I personally do not prefer 5 spoke either. I dont' think it works well on sedans. But hey, the new M5 20's are the best looking 5 spokes I've ever seen, alot better than the old M6 wheels.

Not a fan of these wheels. They have less spokes than the 220m and looks different. The wheels look overly shiny (chome appearance) and the design resemble cheap aftermarket wheels.

Because going up 1" diameter is stupid when a smaller diameter will the do the job better in every way?

I like the M5 19's, not a fan of the M6 19's. Though they're only 0.5" wider than the 220M's though, so might as well go with the ZCP's which have a better offset for our cars. Interesting that the M6 gets 0.5" more wheel width than the M5. The M6 rear offset at ET19 is going to be a tight fit with a wider tire, need more like ~ET27-30 for the wider tires to fit in 19"

Second one is from M6 GC Concept. Pretty sure those are 20" wheels, so no good for me.

The wheels in the picture from W/// (///M6)have seven double spokes.
And the 220 M wheels have ten double spokes...and they look way better...

#1 Neez (http://neezinternational.com/product09.html quality, but $$$$)
#2 M4 Concept

OP, I've thought about this but I'd rather go for 18" for a lighter wheel/tire, better handling, more comfortable ride as well as not having to roll out the rear fenders (offset is +19 on a 19x10.5" wheel)

Don't get me wrong, I've warmed up to my 220s, but I think these are a step up. It's more concave and looks so much more aggressive than what I have now.

The artist that did the M4 PS actually took the wheels from the M6GC. I love them personally, but unfortunately they are 20's. I can definitely respect the functionality of 18s, but to me they just don't look anywhere as good as 19s. This car doesn't see the track, and the roads in SC aren't too rough at all.

So IF I did go with these wheels, I'll for sure have to roll the rear fenders?

Ahh, okay, I didn't know where the photoshopping was done from; I had just seen the M4 sketch.

According to the sticky thread going over whether a tire would rub, it seems to be the case that it would.
