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:

19" V710 Wheel Set - HyperSilver - e9x M3

Let me know if you need anything else.

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:
