Arrow Anyone has a pic of AW M3 with RE30's

Hi gues...i'm looking to get some light street wheels...but im fighting over wheels choices of the following:

Te37
Advan RS
Re30's

I'm bearing towards to the RE30's right now...but still struggling on the limited ones or bronze..

it will be great if anyone has a pics of the RE30's on a M3 coupe, especially AW to give me some idea.

Please let me know the sizes that your run them on and how you feel about it.

Thanks guys!

I have a set of black TE37's and I couldn't be happier. The fitment is absolutely perfect! I think the advan's look pretty cool too though.

Thanks for the pics guys, but i'm looking for other owner's car to see the difference.

I saw that expo shot before, but it's good that now I have the larger scale version on the same pic.

so keep posting! I guess many people want to know more!

Thanks guys!

I love RE30s on the E92, one of my favorite wheels for that car!

TE37s look much better than RE30s.

I agree with the previous two posters. lol. Okay, I guess I'm a little bit biased. I initially wanted RE30's but a friend talked me into the TE37s and I'm so glad he did. I think they are much more aggressive looking and that's the look I was going for. The new fitment is also perfect for this car. I still think the RE30's look good though. I don't think you could go wrong with any of the choices you have up there.

TE37s look clean. It could be me, but both feel like some of the aggressiveness is taken from the M3. Weird....

I need some Volks. I still haven't found a wheel manufacture that does it better for the price. Who do I need to talk to to get some GT series Volks on my E90. I had GT-V's on my 350Z, and LOVED THEM. For my E90, if I can't get a GT series wheel, what other Volk choices do I have to get a polished lip with a black/gun metal center?

Yes, TE37's are TPMS friendly. It mounts the same way as w/oem wheels. I have them w/no issues. Usually 1-piece wheels don't have issues, it's the multi-piece wheels that have issues mounting them. Even then, there are adapters out there you can buy to make TPMS fit on multi-piece wheels. Hope that helps.

Yep, the TE37's are TPMS friendly. However, i ordered my TPM sensors from tire rack and I guess one of them is not working or something because i am getting the stupid warning light. Is there any way I can check to find out which one it is?
