I got the wheels sent directly to dealer so I could pick er up with the new look right from the jump. One change I made was I went with a wider tire on the back, 275's instead of the stock 265 and can't wait to see the setup in person. Supposedly they are prebalanced and have the TPMS already installed so hopefully no issues will arise when I drive 'er away. I'll let you know. My CA has let me know though, that since the wheels were mounted, the car has had gotten a ton of looks and more reactions than "anything else they have ever had at the dealership!" Can't take the waiting game... It's killing me.

Is the main ingredient in those rims still butter??? Toast after one winter. I may have just gotten a bum set but mine required like 9 pounds of lead to balance them out of the box. Since they were winter rims I just sucked it up.

BUMP

sayemthree - I'm curious about your trial of the E46 wheels...

Yep, everything but the weight:

They are 18" (ET 20) and come in Germany with 235/40 Michelin Pilot Alpin 3 (95V).


Best regards, south

Big Windy,

Here are the pics I promised...balancing was poor on shipment on both rear setups though: just in the midst of trying to correct it. Had it in the wheel shop today for re-balancing...hope it worked. My wheel guy, fears one was bent in shipping, hope not. Just heading out to test the new setup...steering wheel vibration at 120-140km/h was the problem. Car is def. getting lots of looks though.

I know a few think putting the M6 wheels on the M3 are a bad idea but I think they really add an aggressive look to the car. And the best thing is they are super easy to clean. Had the car only a couple of days and have washed it 3 times already.

Same problem I had. My guy did the best he could with a ton of wheel weights. Good luck.

That's correct, we sell M6 style wheels in the E92 M3 fitment! We have 19" as well as the 20" versions that come in silver/gunmetal or time-attack (black face, red ring). You can always PM me if you have any questions about that..we were the first to sell the M6 style wheels, and we've been selling hundreds and hundreds of wheels, even today.

Time-attack M6 Style wheels are here for more info - http://www.**********s.com/product.a...ttack_Wheel_KY

Silver/Gunmetal M6 Style wheels are here for more info - http://www.**********s.com/product.a...Style_Wheel_JY


Here are some images of the m6 style wheels on the E92:

so did your wheels rebalance? I was curious because I had a similar issue with my m6 replicas.
