Not a big polished lip fan. I will wait a while until more choices are out.

u guys might not agree with my opinion on wheels, but i think BBS wheels are the most safe bet when it comes to BMW and M3 specifically. i would consider LM's or LM'R's on the car.

if anything i'd go JDM and get Volks, but wouldnt get something else

What specifically are you looking for in the wheel? Performance or Bling?

Ugly wheels. How heavy are they? Most important question.

They are forged wheels and weigh very little, let me find out the precise weight. Am looking for performance number 1 and looks second. I hate bling!! hahaha!!! I should say that the wheels appear much darker on the render than they actually are. I should add that I have already ordered the Brembo BBK for the car. 380mm/6piston front 355mm 4 piston rear. Which is why I can't keep the stock wheels. Not only better brakes but lighter too!

In person, on the M6 these wheels are definitely not "bling"

The quality looks amazing. Masking on the painted surface + transition into clearcoated brushed aluminum is absolutely perfect.

A very classy wheel.

Personally I prefer no chrome bits on the M3

what size are you looking at cos going so big (21") may cause rubbing issues?
imho, you should wait for your brakes to come in, then find suitable tyres to fit them, unless you have all the detailed specs already... (eg. Js, offsets etc...)

btw, photos of your new SW?

Cheers

Ed already has the tires and proper offsets will be applied to clear his new BBK.
