After Market Wheels

Hi there. Just interested if anyone has fitted or is planning to fit some after market wheels to their M3.

I'm looking at some 20" Asanti 3 piece rims.

Also does anyone know whether this affects the bmw warranty?

After market wheels will not affect the warranty.

Actually... It's not such a silly idea! (But I'm well aware of that it doesn't void warranty) Special rims makes the car perform different, it could for an example bend the ting thing that spins the wheel (whatever it's called in English). But actually, I would be more afraid of road holes and speed bumps to void warranty (which it doesn't :P).

Why do I feel like my status here got lowered by 90%? haha

I was thinking about black centres with the chrome lip. I have Asanti's on my last car and the rims were solid. My only tip is to keep em clean and take them of b4 winter cus I kind of damaged my last set.

Below is some pics of my last ride with 20" asanti's on them.

...not a fan of chrome, but you are the one who has to drive it, so whatever floats your boat.

*Suggested Research Topic- unsprung weight and its nasty detriment to handling and acceleration.

...your car will thank you at the next turn.

How can you say such a thing...



There is a very short list of wheels that I would actually put on the m3, Asanti's are definitely NOT on that list.

BBS remains in the top three...

OMG LOL at this post. Why would you ever put 20 inch wheels on the best handling car? You would hinder the vehicle's potentials. Better yet why would you put heavy/ugly chrome wheels on such a beautiful machine. Wow I am sad.

Ha ha...I missed ADHD's post last month. I am actually strongly considering switching my vs7's from my 335 over to my m3 when I get it. Anybody familiar with the Morr's have any thoughts on this?

Posers. People more interested in making the "scene" than driving the car for what it offers. Go get a Merc if you want to make the scene.

Personally I prefer the original wheels, but if you get kicks from chrome then go for it. In any case you won't see them while driving it so clearly it's only for the show off purpose - so posers indeed !

So, by that logic, just get hubcaps. Those would be a sight.

The normal 335 wheel offset will look funny and underperform on the M3, which has a stock offset of 29 front and 23 rear...I discussed this with somebody from Morr on this thread. ...though it looks like he deleted most of his posts.

I wouldn't do it, but maybe you could run spacers... Do you know what your wheel's offsets are? 35/35 maybe?

Talking Get The 20inch Rims And Ride On Chrome

If you want to put 20 inch rims on your M3 YOU GO RIGHT ON AHEAD BECAUSE MY M3 IS GOING TO BE JUST LIKE THE HAMANN M3 IN JEREZ COLOR, UNLIKE THE HAMANN JET BLACK COLOR. THE HAMANN CAR HAS 20INCH RIMS AND IT LOOKS GOOD. I ORDERED MYSELF THE NEW M3 AND MY M3 WILL HAVE EVERYTHING THE HAMANN CAR HAS TRUST ME. NO FACTORY LOOKING CAR FOR ME THAT IS A NO GO. I AM GOING TO PUT 20X9 INCH CHROME RIMS ON THE FRONT WITH 245/30 ZR20 TIRES AND 20X10 CHROME RIMS ON THE REAR WITH 305/25 ZR20 TIRES ON THE REAR.

THE GREEN 740I WAS MY BMW IN GERMANY IT WAS FAST AND HOOKED UP UNLIKE THE 740I IN THE STATES THIS ONE WAS A 6 SPEED MANUAL WITH 20INCH RIMS AND SPINNERS, I SOLD IT AND ORDERED MYSELF THE NEW M3 AND MY M3 WILL HAVE EVERYTHING THE HAMANN CAR HAS TRUST ME. NO FACTORY LOOKING CAR FOR ME THAT IS A NO GOOD.

Spinners ...you have to be joking right? Please keep those off the M3!
