Wheels for Interlagos Blue M3??

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and proud to say I finally found my IB on black M3. It came with stock wheels and was debating on putting on the competition package wheels, but just need some input from you.

I really don't want to lower the car because I've done it to my past two vehicles and although it looks great, it's a PITA with speedbumps, potholes, etc. Just looking for a different look on stock height. Any suggestions or pics would be great. Thanks again.

Mike

Slam, thanks for the post. i have seen that thread before and all those cars look great, but most if not all have been lowered. i guess i'm just curious what those wheels would look like on an M3 with stock suspension. anyway, thanks for your time.

Honestly no aftermarket wheel looks very good with stock suspension. As soon as you put an aftermarket wheel and especially if you end up running wider tires with a shorter sidewall, the car screams for a drop. IMO you can drop without aftermarket wheels but you struggle if you do wheels and no drop.
