Now debating tires.... Considering staggered RS3's (275/285) or square (275/35/18) Dunlop ZII
So you are going TE37 like thousands of us? lol I would have went with 18 inch bronze CE28s for the E92 M3. Thats something you dont see everyday. These you see from NSX to Subaru.

Not a fan of CE28's. I don't care if everyone has TE37's or nobody has TE37's... I buy products that I like, are proven, and are high quality. Not trying to get featured in any magazines or win any car shows

Trying to make up my mind on 18s or 19s. Really don't want that 18" wheel gap or have to slam it but they look a little better than the 19s :/
Sent you a PM.

I'm keeping the HRE's. I bought the Volks primarily for track use.

My submission:

Before:


Volk TE-37 Time Attacks
19x8.5 +33
19x10.5 +25

I picked them up for $1k. For $900, I had them stripped, the curbing fixed, and a 3 stage powder coat applied: chrome, a second color, and an automotive clear, all from www.powderbuythepound.com. The effect is a black silver when the light hits it right. I then had the same things done to the aftermarket lug nuts and lock nuts ($120). Following that, I disassembled the center caps,



had the rings blasted, and then painted them Alpine White ($30). The centers themselves I had hard anodized to withstand the rigors of road use.



I then hit up EAS for some custom (appropriate) sized decals ($40). The results:



For those that are curious, no, the keys have no problems at all fitting over the lug/lock nuts. And there's no scratching, just pressure marks you can't even see.

My wheels are officially done.

Geez man your car looks so clean. Take a moment and replace those yellow yoke bulbs with invisabulbs or LED ones that shine amber. When you say your one your 3rd set what are you insinuating happened to the rest? sold/traded or destroyed by the track?

It's overcast today, I'll get some better pics when it's sunny outside....



Edit:

The sun broke through as I was leaving, so I had time to get a few pics...

That looks really good and I'm loving the subtle blue accent rings to match the blue on the OEM roundels. When your looking to change things a bit you could swap out the white Volk stickers for matte black so it would still contrast with the gloss black wheel. Good work, thanks for the pictures!

Thank you. I had 2 sets of center caps done, and the second set has a different color trim ring, as well. I like being able to make small visual changes without really doing too much to accomplish them. I also have another set of turn signal indicators that I'm working on for a little something extra

I agree with your way of thinking in relation to modding. "Less is more" is always best. Thanks for sharing

What method do u guys use to stick on the stickers for the SL's?

I'm extremely worried about messing them up.

Do u use the soapy water spray then squeegee out method?

I am one of the guys that dont like the SL decals after having them on my wheels. They are just your average sticker and I did all 4 of my wheels in 5 minutes. You wont mess anything up.

I would either trash the SL decals and go with original TE37 decals or leave all decals off.
