+1 on that

the whole point of the wheels is how gorgeous they are, and in 19s...
not for me! but I do like the color

I almost debated getting 19s so I dont feel every freaking little bump on the shitty PA roads.

I think a drop would help out big time, tends to make wheels look larger than they actually are.

It will get dropped soon enough.

Quick question...anyone with 19" Mesh 8 wheels, did your valve stems hit the calipers? Mine do ever so slightly. I am going to change out the current valve stems, for flush mount ones. That will fix the problem.

19's do indeed look way too small for that wheel. Also, looking at the pictures, the offsets do not look right imho.

I did not want to lose the performance by going to a 20" wheel, and I did not want to be able to say my Dee-Dub has Dubs!!!! I do admit, the fronts could be a little wider to the outside, but the rears are perfect.

If you're going for performance, you should have just stuck with the 18's that come stock or some other lightweight wheel. Definitely not a heavy 3 piece wheel.

Even though you got 19's, it will still diminish your performance over stock. You chose looks over performance anyways... might as well make the car look really good and get 20's.

I had 19's stock, so I at least made a lateral move. Actually, these wheels weigh less than the stock wheels, so I made a forward movement.

Don't worry about the dub riders blingers. The 19s look great. I am going to stick with 19s as well. Shitty ride, heavier and more expensive tires with 20s No thanks.

I do agree with your overall statement (as far as might as well go 20s, because yes there are lighter wheels out there), however I HATE when people say/think that these wheels are heavy. They are FAR from heavy, everytime my tire guy picks up one of my rims (which are 20s), he cant believe how fucken light they are. they weigh about 22 lbs. Thats pretty light for a 3 piece wheel, especially one that looks as good as these do!

Curious why your front offsets are off? I know they were "in-stock" items with 360 - so were they not built ideally for the M3?? Maybe a 335 or something?
Congrats, still!

I am trying to figure this out myself. I will be talking with the great guys at 360 tomorrow. They will take care of it.

The machined center section is what is in stock. The inner and outer 1/2's of the wheel are an off-the-shelf item that they put the center part into. It is the center section that takes awhile to machine. 360 will just have to take these wheels apart, and use a different inner and outer wheel piece.

What do the lip depths measure? 2-1/2 front? 4-1/2 rear?

Those are the worst 360 forged rims I have ever seen. They're too small, the offsets are way off, AND they look like Miguel let his retarded half brother do the finishing.

Wow, I would say that is a little over the top. It does look like the offset is not quite right in the front but I think this will look great when you get your car dropped.

The front offset is off, yes. The finish is amazing, you are just blind or something. They are 1" smaller in diameter than 20"s, I am sure you can barely tell a difference.

Don't listen to the bling-bling crowd. They look good, just drop the front a tad to lessen that gap.

Currently they are 4 1/2" & 2 1/2", but the fronts should be 3".
