Looks interesting. What are the offsets, widths and weights? Price? This should be in the wheels section by the way. http://www.m3post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=119

Thanks, hopefully one of the mods can move this thread to the correct section.

These are 19" on the vehicle now, offsets are +ET25 & +ET22.

At this time, only the CSL reps. Most people are going the matte black 18" for winter setups.

i know the oem color can be matched in the event of damage. can the flat black or hyper black be repainted?

Possibly, but at the price point - replacement may be a better idea depending on damage.

Any reason this isn't in the proper wheels and tires forum?

19" wheels price and offset for the e92 M3? Are these 1 piece forged? Need spacers? Accept factory caps? Info please!

I dk...even though the OEM 19s are multi-spokes, these look too cluttered on the E92. They look great on the E46, though.

They accept the factory caps, no problem. The e92 M3 wheels can be found here:

Based on price, I'm guessing that these wheels are cast. I'm not sure why you would put "cheap" cast wheels on a $70k car that already comes with forged wheels from the factory.

It's a nice wheel but it just doesn't make sense for this particular car. It's like a downgrade.

I know a lot of people want a style other than the Mesh for the E92, but I still think this style fits nicely. Looks very aggressive yet refined at the same time. Although I have P40s on the way so I guess I am biased...

BMW wheels are not forged, they are spun cast.

CSLs are similar in design:
