BBS CMs

On a white M3? I've provisionally ordered my Breyton GTS Race 19s in black but saw these on tirerack. 25.5lbs. Hmmmm.

Choices, choices.

Dude

Personally although I love some BBS rims (and had RS-GT's on my E46), those do not look good. The Breytons would look far better on an AW car IMHO.

If you do choose the breytons, be sure to post pics, because I am struggling with wheel finish choice myself, not sure whether to go with a black/charcoal style rim.

Ordered the Breytons on Thursday, as usual with me as soon as I order something I start to question if I have done the right thing.

I like the Breytons much better, just make sure to check out the weight as I remember Breytons being rather heavy.

I'm not good at photochoping i think i did make the car a bit to low... But i made my point that these rims look way better than those BBS's

Design-wise, those Breyton's look mo better on an M3. However, I think the gun metal version looks better than all-black on an AW.

you'd be surprised by the actual quality and look of the CM. Sure, it is a little out there but it is pretty nice.

Of Course, as an authorized BBS dealer, I am biased.

Stick with the Breyton wheels. Will look killer on an AW M3. You'll see after you get them on the car. I'm considering those wheels as well for my car.

Forgot to say make sure those Breyton wheels are strong & durable. Cast-aluminum wheels can be IF done right. After all, tires going on will be low-profile.

Stuck with the Breytons plus Mich PS2s. Black.

11kgs bythe way for the person who asked about weight.

Are you talking about the 19" Breyton Race GTS? If yes then did you weigh it yourself? According to Tire Rack, they weighed it & got 12.27 kg (front) & 12.73 kg (rear).
