wheels with a dark finish

Hello. I've been thinking about getting the Melbourne Red exterior--and I like the dark wheels seen on the european models. But I don't want the "deep dish" look. Any ideas for me?

Check out the Volk Time Attacks TE28s and CE37s. They were limited in quantity but you still may be able to drum up a set (or have one painted).

These are killer wheels and weigh 20-22lbs for 19"ers. The offsets should work for the E9X M3. Not sure if they are as dark as you want them though.

Thanks guys for your quick replies. I'm just not sure I like the OEM 19's. I didn't have that problem with my e46 competition pkg csl-type wheels.

They are nice, but I thought the off-sets were far from ideal?

Oh, right. But I think so far we only know the specs for the standard 3 series, not for the M3!?

I tried Photoshopping those wheels onto an AW M3 but there is too much red from that carpet reflected onto the rims for it to look any good...Im pretty sure they would look magnificent with AW.

I don't want to put 20s on my M3 but if they are available in the correct size/offset at 19" I think they would be FTW.

Oops, sorry. I meant the specs of the Breyton wheels. There seem to be different versions for the standard 3 series and for the M3.

Is it possible to tell if the "M3" version requires spacers? I'm not a big fan of them

As mentioned we know the specs of the Breyton wheels that fit on a E91:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...01#post1788501

I guess there will be an M3 version of these wheels with the offset being 29mm front and 33mm rear.

Count me in for the M3 19in version of these wheels. They would likely look good with any exterior color.
