Poll: Graphite Metallic M3

What color wheel combos look best on his vehicle?

Some say black but to me that darkens the car too much; other say stick with silver to lighten it up. While titanium and gunmetal are options.

If I continue with the MORR group buy I can get all these and more OR have them custom done if I get other options such as HRE or Breyton.

Anyway what do you experts out there think? Am looking for a nice 19" to use for summer tires while I use my 18" for winter work.

Feel like a kid in a candy store...decisions...decisions!

Honestly I think that with your car as of now the black rims might be too dark for it. Just my opinion. I think if you tinted the windows and put some nice silver like rims on it, it would look sweet. Maybe something like 19" BBS LM-R's would look sweet. But if you want a gunmetal or darker rim i do think that the CSL type rims look sweet in a darker color on a white car!

Get the 360 Forged split seven.

Very light wheels. I am not sure on their 19inch weights, but I have read with the "race prep" option the 20inch wheels are sub 20lbs wheels. Their 19's must weigh nothing.

The best looking aftermarket wheels I have seen on the M3. I like them better than stock actually.
