What colour wheels for IB E92 M3

Hi guys,

I'm having a real tough time trying to pick wheel colour for my Interlogos blue M3. I will be going with the VMR V710's 19x10-19x11 combo. I was thinking of going a deep bronze or should I stick with standard hyper silver or black. Any pics or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks for the response catherinelam, gunmetal is another option in the mix as well. To get the full picture I will be putting on a arkym carbon front lip, vorsteiner type rear diffuser and in the future hopefully an ericsson trunk lid and changing the m3 side markers to shiny black.

I'd go with satin black. Black looks hot on IB!

my last car was a LeMans blue E92 335i. Had a lot of different wheels on the car, but the best was this:






hyper silver with front polished.


i dont like black wheels anymore, cause you cant see any details of the design of the wheels.

on our IB M3 we've had gunmetal, brushed, pressed graphite, and satin black wheels. Id probably say my favorite was the pressed graphite TE37SL.

What an awesome forum, I appreciate everyones help, I think I may be more confused now all the cars look great. I may just save my pennies and get a nice deep dish wheel like the BC forged wheels a couple of posts above. I do have some HRE 441rs chrome lip with like a graphite middle that I may get refinished only problem is that they are a E46 M3 offset so I would have to run some spacers in the front.

great thread

I have the same problem. Still on 220, but looking for ZPC black, now because of this thread gunmetal

But my first thought was bronze rims. Does someone have pics of IB with bronze wheels.

bronze ZPC on IB would look badass
