Gunmetal Volk TE37s on LMB E90 M3

Hi Guys -

Here are my new wheels. Volk TE37s in gunmetal. This is supposed to be the last set of TE37s in this color in the States! Thanks to Frank at WSTO for answering all my questions along the way. I had a bunch!

The specs are:

19x9.5 +20 with Vredestein 255/35s
19x10.5 +22 with 295/30s

I am on Dinan springs as a reminder.

Here are the pics:





















So what do you think? I know some folks have a problem with JDM wheels on a M3 but personally I think they fit the M3's personality perfectly. All business and no bling which is what I wanted. Thanks for looking.

Glad you like them. We had a few hiccups along the way and we were holding hands and praying that you'd LOVE them.

Glad you like them and tell us how you like the Vreds.

Yeah I am very happy with them. They were worth the wait.

The Vred's are great so far. I even like the tread pattern which I had reservations about but you can't beat the performance/price ratio.

No homo okay?

I love you man.

I wanted to see some good photos of Lemans Blue, and I wanted to see some good photos of gunmetal on Lemans Blue.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.

I'm also beginning to think that the sedan looks more aggressive and that I'd rather have that over the coupe, possibly? Damn....

sweet pics. i have the same wheels but in diff color. curious what is the reason to go 35 up front and 30 in the rear?? fitment or to fill the gap?? or performance?? thanks alot

i agree i wanted a no bling functional lightweight strong wheel and you can't beat the Volk TE37 for that in my op

looks great enjoy

I'm inspired! Every time I start to waver on LMB, your photos bring me back. I do have question. Why did you choose the regular TE37 versus the G2?

sorry for a newb question isn't JDM popular hop up stuff for hondas and acuras?? i didn't even know JDM made Volk's i thought Volk was its own company and just made wheels. anytime i think Volk i just think of an M3, had them on my E46 M3 for awhile and now on this car.

guess i am out of the loop
