What type of wheels do M3 owners prefer?

I want to see what type of wheels does each member prefer: AC Schnitzer, HRE, iForge, etc...
And what size?
The HRE has been appealing to me for some time now, and I like the "Charcoal powdercoat" finish. But I haven't settled on the exact style.

The SSR type F in 10 x 18 is calling to me these days from the Tirerack.




I've always got these to fall back on for track days, unless I sell them with the e46.
9.5 x 18 et35 front (will use a spacer on e90)
10.5 x 18 et 28 rear
17 lbs each

Stock 18" not only look mean but is a better package, if only marginal.

$1500 a piece from TC Kline.

They are forged magnesium. They're awesome for the track because of the super light weight and because they are very stiff. But they can't be used on the street because potholes will crack them. Ask me how I know.

I still prefer Volks. Had them on my last 2 cars, and they will be on this one as well.
