Some 1 needs to make the OEM 18' wheels in a 19' replica.

The 18' wheels look so good on all these cars! The color is sick, it is just a bit two small. TO much side wall and tire for my taste. Same wheel in a 19' or even a 20' would look incredible IMO. Just a thought

i agree, but i think it is mostly an illusion. the sidewall is greater than with the 19"s, but it seems exaggerated in some pics and in others it looks great. it prefer the look of the 18"s over the 19"s because i don't like chrome, but appearance of too much sidewall and tire is making it a tough call.

E90/92 M3 18" replicas?

I would be happy with 18 replicas in an offset that would work on the E46M3 or Mcoupe. I prefer that style.

I also would like to know if these would fit my Mcoupe? What are the offsets on these wheels?

agreed BUT they must maintain the same concavity if not more aggressive. most reps lose the concavity

The 19s are not chrome

if I understand everything correctly from the other thread, this is kind of pointless since we are probably only interested if they were to fit our E90/92/92 M3's

Any chance you guys are producing those with the proper offset for M3s?

These wheels will be offered in E9X non-M fit which would fit the M3 with spacers.
