Love the wheels. I put the red centercaps on my RS-GTs I had on my 335 and I like that look as well.

I gotta say, first M3 on after market 19s that I like!

The type of wheel makes a huge difference too, for example HRE P40s in 19s just don't look right on our cars.

The aggressive width and lip really makes these wheels stand out. Thanks for posting up the closeup. Can't wait to see more photos.

Can you please post up some shots either from an angle or from the fender down so we can see how these wheels align with the fender. Thanks.

I disagree completely.... 19's that don't have a dish or lip look fine on this car....its the stepped lip 19s that tend to look too small.

These happen to look great with the lowered stance.

Looks great...I rather go for the 20s as the 19s look a bit small.

You are buggin... they do NOT look small... you are just used to seeing the LMs in 20s on the M3s posted here, but the 19s def dont look small. The 20s look good too, but 19s will def do in the looks department.

The problem with going with 20's is you're running a 25 series tire, so the first pothole you hit will likely hit the rim too.

Absolutely.... Its a very stupid move if you live in NYC or anywhere that has shitty roads... But if I lived somewhere nice and flat with clean rodes, I would do the 20s!

The roads are pretty good in the OC, but all it takes is one pot-hole, and you've got a $1,500 bill for a new rim and tire.

How exactly did you do the calipers? Did you lay a sticker down and clear coat over it? Or what? How was the ///M done?

I had a shop here in OC do it for me, but I'm sure anyone can do this. The decals can be bought on Ebay.

Did you buy yours on Ebay? I searched there and could not find one to fit on the calipers. Do you happen to have a link where you bought yours?

Good luck...
Sorry for the wrong info: I checked the tire size and these are the ones I'm running.
