I wouldn't go with white paint, but if you do, the Mesh 10 works best.

With a white car, how about "Time Attack" colors like black with red?

My buddy has an E60 M5 (Alpine White as well)
and he has HREs painted white with chrome lip, looks amazing. (he put the BMW center caps to make it look clean)

Mesh but it's really hard to tell until you see them on the car and how it works overall.

Good luck

Be smart like your buddy and get HRE's. They make the same styles and are of better quality. Word is 360 forged is going out of business. Your getting these at a huge discount right? Unless the price is much less than comparable HRE's I would not take the risk. 360 forged wheels look nice dont get me wrong but I would be somewhat wary given some of the information I have been made aware of.

Let me guess you tried to get a 'huge discount' and were rejected so your mad... I love forum trolls that know everything from their "secret source" Go do some research on the technology used in 360 Forged wheels before you post randomness, as a matter of fact go troll on 6speed so you can see how they are going out of bizness

OP check out this vid.

are you taking drugs??
I had wheels for my blue Z06 which I traded for a Black zokes and have there wheels also...Ordering Split 7 for a BMW 650 next week!!!..They are the coolest people ever that deal with high end cars... I had HRE on my E46 M3 and from one day to the next sold the wheels because the inners were cracked straight from a huge distributor down here.

360Forged is the best thing I couldve done!

+1 I bought the 360 split 7 including tires off the car in the picture from Nate@industry 20x8.5 front with 245/30tires and 20x11 rear with 305/25tires I can't wait to put them on my M3 I am a happy customer and proud owner of 360 split Seven

No matter which wheels you decide on slammedm3 360 is good and will look good all the way around
