what do you guys think?

i was looking to add a muti spoke wheel in step lip , i was offered these exact style wheels at a good price in 20 " , i would like to know what you guys think? I believe these were for a gtr in 21". Maybe color match centers and polish lip?

It's an interesting look. Sort of Japanese-ish. Which I think is fine. I put SSR's on my E36, and love them. The color matching might not be a bad idea, not sure how good the bronze would look (although you might put it up to the car and see how you like it).

It looks good...

But 21in tire sizes are somewhat limited for M3 application.

The 20's would probably look good in a lighter colored car (AW/Silverstone)

IMO it looks like it belongs on a range rover. It looks nice though.
